Elliott Aviation, a provider in business-aviation services since 1936, announces it has acquired the Atlanta-based MRO, The Maintenance Group. The Maintenance Group has been successfully operating at the DeKalb-Peachtree Airport (PDK) in Atlanta, GA, for over 25 years.
The acquisition of The Maintenance Group adds the following additional airframe service capabilities to Elliott Aviation’s portfolio of qualifications:
- Gulfstream G550/G450/G-V/G-IV/G-III/G-280/G-200/G-150/G-100
- Falcon 2000/50/50EX
- and Bombardier Challenger 350/600/601/650.
In addition to the aforementioned aircraft maintenance capabilities, Elliott Aviation’s current facilities in Moline (MLI), Des Moines (DSM), and Eden Prairie (FCM) are authorized service facilities for Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP, Hawker, King Air and Premier. It is also an authorized service center for Embraer Legacy 400/500, Phenom 100/300, and TBM. Additionally, the company regularly utilizes its approvals within its 145 Repair Station for Challenger 300/604/605, several Learjet models, and most models of Cessna Citation.
The Maintenance Group is equipped to handle major airframe inspections, structural repairs and modifications, wing corrosion repair, DAR import/export airworthiness approvals, STC installation and certification projects, and pre-purchase inspections. It adds an additional 40,000+ square feet to Elliott Aviation’s nationwide footprint.
“Elliott Aviation has been on a mission to expand our MRO footprint to a southeast-based maintenance location and increase our capabilities to new airframes for nearly a year,” says Greg Sahr, CEO of Elliott Aviation. “We are happy to welcome a highly talented group of experienced maintenance technicians in a geography that will help us expand our overall maintenance capabilities.
