- August 10, 2021, 12:45 PM UK-based aircraft tooling, parts, and components provider Complete Aircraft Group has acquired business aviation MRO Aerocare Aviation Services. As a Part 145 outfit, Aerocare has been providing maintenance, repair, modifications, interior refurbishment, and exterior paint for nearly three decades. Aerocare will retain its name under the new ownership. This acquisition thrusts nine-month-old Complete Aircraft into the business aviation arena. Aerocare—which is based at Hawarden Airport in Chester, UK—performs maintenances on several business aircraft types, including Hawkers, Beechcraft King Airs, and Embraer Phenom 300s. The combined businesses bring together 100 employees under Complete Aircraft Group CEO and founder Warren Crook. “The complementary addition of Aerocare is a great fit to our diverse aviation group, enabling us to better serve our respective markets and customer base,” said Crook. “Moving into business aviation, which has shown incredible resilience throughout the pandemic, opens an exciting and new chapter for Complete Aircraft Group. Valuable portfolio additions include a mobile repair team, aircraft acquisition and tear down, and complete management and oversight.” The purchase also marks a strategic investment for Complete Aircraft, which recently bolstered its senior management with the addition of Alan Barnes, who has 30 years of experience in supporting MROs, including those owned and authorized by leading business aviation OEMs.
