Storm Aviation has acquired Chevron Technical Services (CTS) in a deal which includes its Scotland-based subsidiary Chevron Aircraft Maintenance (CAM). 

Manchester-based CTS specializes in component repair and overhaul along with piece part manufacturing, while the CAM business, located at Glasgow Prestwick Airport, specializes in aircraft maintenance services. 

One of the primary offerings of CAM is base maintenance up to D-check. CAM’s 65,000 sq. ft hangar has the capacity to house widebody aircraft up to the size of a Boeing 747 across three aircraft bays and becomes Storm Aviation’s sixth location for this purpose.

The FL Technics subsidiary has hangar space across five locations in Europe, China, and Southeast Asia. Storm Aviation will also add to its line station network by taking on two more locations at Glasgow Prestwick Airport and, through a joint venture, at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

In a statement announcing the acquisition, FL Technics’ parent company Avia Solutions Group said Glasgow Prestwick Airport has the potential to become a core hub for training as well as aircraft line and base maintenance for FL Technics Group customers worldwide.  

“The acquisition both enhances and complements the suite of services already offered by Storm Aviation,” adds Thomas Buckley, Storm Aviation’s CEO.

The acquisition of CTS by Storm Aviation is the latest move it has made over the past 18 months. It acquired Italian business aircraft MRO Flash Line Maintenance in February 2020 followed by the buyout of Canada-based line specialist Wright International. That same month it snapped up all of the UK-based line network of Swiss MRO SR Technics.
