Mayo Aviation Partners With Stevens Aerospace for Maintenance Services


ENGLEWOOD, CO (MARCH 6, 2024) – Mayo Aviation announces it is entering a strategic alliance with Stevens Aerospace and Defense Systems to expand aircraft maintenance capabilities for its managed aircraft and charter customers. With the move, Stevens will acquire Mayo Aviation’s maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) operations at Centennial Airport (KAPA).

“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,” said Mayo Aviation President Brent Moldowan. “Stevens offers a robust maintenance provider plan nationwide for our owners, with a proven track record.”

Mayo Aviation serves as the Rocky Mountain West base of the George J. Priester Aviation family of companies. Last year, Stevens acquired the maintenance operations of Hill Private Aviation, George J. Priester’s Southeast base. 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 Stevens alliance is in addition to existing relationships and maintenance options Mayo customers currently enjoy.

The move will allow Mayo customers to leverage the expertise and scale of Stevens’ operations, including preferential scheduling, while keeping the personal dedication to service that has been with the Southeast-based company for more than 70 years. Similar to George J. Priester companies, the Centennial Airport base will be Stevens’ farthest west.

The Stevens legacy for precision, dedication and a passion for aviation has helped them grow into one of the premier MROs in aviation with three locations at Greenville, SC (KGYH), Atlanta, GA (KFTY) and Nashville, TN (KMQY), and now a fourth in Colorado, plus an extensive mobile maintenance division.

“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.”
