Constant Aviation, a full-service MRO (Aircraft Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul Company) with a nationwide network, celebrated the grand opening of its Mesa location with a ribbon cutting ceremony today, Nov. 8.
Located at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, the state-of-the-art facility totals 75,000 square feet, with 50,000 square feet of hangar space, fully optimized for MRO operations. Constant Aviation appointed Stan Younger to serve as regional vice president, responsible for overseeing the full implementation of the new site, and Scott Sweeny to oversee site operations.
“It is with great excitement that we celebrate the official opening of our Mesa facility,” said Stephen Maiden, president and CEO of Constant Aviation. “Our first aircraft was inducted for maintenance and modifications on Sept. 18. The facility provides full service MRO capabilities to support our West Coast region. In addition to the talent already in place, we have 50 immediate openings in Mesa, and more planned to meet the needs of our customers.”
“Constant Aviation is a tremendous addition to the growing aerospace and aviation businesses in Mesa’s District 6,” said District 6 Councilmember Kevin Thompson. “With the anticipated 150 well-paying jobs they will bring, Constant is the perfect partner to welcome to Gateway. The Gateway area is one of the fastest growing in the country, and bringing in a company like Constant Aviation will only add to the draw the area already has.”
“Congratulations to Constant Aviation and welcome to Mesa,” Mayor John Giles said. “When companies are looking for a new location, Mesa’s business friendly environment and stellar connectivity provide a great advantage for business. Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, and the surrounding area, has become a true hub for aviation and is a perfect fit for Constant Aviation’s aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul operations.”
With existing locations in Cleveland, Orlando and Las Vegas, the addition of Mesa will be Constant Aviation’s second location in the West.
