We service and maintain more than 10,000 pieces of ground support equipment throughout the year in fully-equipped maintenance shops across the country.
Our fleet ranges in size and complexity from simpler, non-motorized equipment types such as baggage carts and towbars to larger and often highly complex equipment such as baggage and cargo container loaders and aircraft tow tractors weighing up to 120,000 pounds or more.
Our team includes automotive and heavy duty mechanics, millwrights, electricians, and automotive painters. They’re critical to our operation, as each flight arrival and departure depends on our equipment being in tip top shape.
