Stevens Expands MRO Services to Georgia in Strategic Alliance
Greenville, S.C. — Stevens Aerospace and Defense Systems, LLC (Stevens) is pleased to announce that they will be expanding their MRO services to Fulton County Executive Airport at Brown Field (known as Charlie Brown Field KFTY) in Atlanta, Georgia. This move is made possible by a newly formed strategic alliance with two long-term industry icons: Hill Aircraft who has been located at Fulton County Executive Airport since 1955, and Priester Aviation who is one of the largest and oldest aircraft charter and private management companies in the U.S. The three companies combine nearly 220 years of legendary aviation experience into one offering providing unrivaled aviation service.
Founded in 1955, Hill Aircraft is a leading independent aviation services provider with decades of experience in FBO Line and Customer Service support, hangar and office real estate leasing, as well as aircraft sales and acquisitions. Hill Aircraft’s dedication to aviation, passion for customer service, and commitment to their customers around the country is demonstrated daily by their team in every line of business under the Hill name. Hill Aircraft will continue to operate their #1 rated award-winning FBO while upgrading and expanding their client offerings with Stevens’ maintenance capabilities. As part of this alliance, Hill’s charter and
management services will be joining the Priester Aviation family of companies as Hill Private Aviation. By being part of the larger Priester family, Hill Private Aviation’s executive charter and management services will now have more nationwide infrastructure and resources. Hill Private Aviation’s expertise in Atlanta complements Priester Aviation’s footprint in the mid-west along with fellow Priester company Mayo Aviation in the Rocky Mountain west.
Formed in 1945 by founder George Priester as a flight school, Priester Aviation’s services grew and evolved over the years to now include aircraft management, executive jet charter, and aviation consulting. They have aircraft strategically positioned across the globe, providing maximum flexibility and value. The company continues in the family today now lead by Andy Priester with their global headquarters located just outside of Chicago at the Chicago Executive Airport (PWK) in Wheeling, IL.
