Mayo Aviation partners with Stevens Aerospace

Mayo Aviation

Mayo Aviation has entered a strategic alliance with Stevens Aerospace and Defense Systems to expand its aircraft maintenance capabilities.

The move will see Stevens acquire Mayo Aviation’s maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) operations at Centennial Airport (KAPA). Mayo serves as the Rocky Mountain West base of the George J. Priester Aviation family of companies.

Mayo Aviation president Brent Moldowan said: “This allows us to better focus on our aircraft owners and charter services while offering a national MRO partnership to our customers, giving them more options, capabilities and expertise. Stevens offers a robust maintenance provider plan nationwide for our owners, with a proven track record.”

The new alliance offers all Priester customers more access to MRO capabilities for all types of aircraft, especially Mayo Aviation’s 45-year relationship with Colorado Flight for Life and its fleet of King Air aircraft.

The move will also allow Mayo customers to leverage the expertise and scale of Stevens’ operations, including preferential scheduling. Similar to George J. Priester companies, the Centennial Airport base will be Stevens’ farthest west.

“Stevens’ legacy as a privately owned aviation company aligns with the values of all of our companies,” Moldowan said. “They understand that aviation is a service business and share the same focus on customers. Partnering with such an established, similar-minded company allows Mayo to best serve our owners’ needs and benefit charter clients.”
