Storm Aviation Limited (SAL), a global provider of line and base maintenance and aviation training services, has acquired Manchester-based Chevron Technical Services (CTS), and its Prestwick-based subsidiary Chevron Aircraft Maintenance (CAM) providing aerospace solutions to the aircraft maintenance industry.
SAL, a subsidiary of FL Technics, which is part of Avia Solutions Group (ASG), will create a significant presence in Scotland’s Glasgow Prestwick Airport while adding new capabilities, including wide-body aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), aircraft component maintenance, EASA Part-21G workshop production, engine services, fuel tank repairs, and recruitment services. Additionally, Storm Aviation Limited will assume operation of two line maintenance stations – at Glasgow Prestwick Airport and, through a joint venture, at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
Together with FL Technics, Storm Aviation Limited already has access to 68,000 m² of bay hangar space at five locations in Europe, China, and Southeast Asia, and offers airline clients access to one of the largest independent line maintenance networks covering more than 70 airport locations worldwide.
The acquisition of Chevron Technical Services’ Glasgow Prestwick Airport-based facility will add a 6th location with 6,000 m² of hangar space and three aircraft bays with the capacity to house wide-bodied aircraft up to Boeing 747. CTS’s aircraft component maintenance and production workshops along with aviation recruitment services are based in Manchester and will be offered as new services to SAL’s existing clients.
