A Team You Can Trust
Advantage Aviation Technologies is an FAA certified repair station offering thousands of innovative part repairs, component overhauls and new parts manufacturing for business and commercial fixed wing aircraft and helicopters.
AAT was officially founded in 1993 as an innovative solutions company. Our goal when we began was to develop repairs and overhauls for fixed wing aircraft and helicopters where OEM repairs or overhauls didn’t exist and we quickly grew to be a trusted – and often times sole – provider of innovative repairs, overhauls, and parts fabrication.
In 2010 we purchased TXI Aviation’s landing gear overhaul and hydraulic overhaul division and merged the two companies together to further expand our offerings. Since then, our business has grown to include all manner of fixed wing and helicopter parts services including CNC machining, composite repair, precision welding, heat treat, and non-destructive testing as well as exclusive partnerships for AOG maintenance, parts sales, and aircraft sales and acquisitions. Our mission, however, remains to create innovative aircraft repair solutions that save our customers time and money.
