Our Headquarters in the Northeast

In 2015, we opened our 65,000-square-foot northeastern base of operations at Waterbury-Oxford Airport (KOXC) in Connecticut. We received FAA approval to open a Part 145 Repair Station in 2019 and, in 2020, announced an expansion across 13 acres to build a new FBO and larger aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul facility.

The strategic and continued growth of our facilities and operations in the northeastern U.S. has enabled us to broaden our capabilities and team to include our expert aircraft management solutions.
