Updated: Monday, May 29, 2017 - 2:21pmA new company plans to set up shop later this year at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. Constant Aviation will join a growing cluster of facilities known as “MRO”s.
MRO stands for maintenance, repair and overhaul. It’s the equivalent of a car dealer’s service department.
“For everything from engine repairs and avionics and interior refurbishments and parts replacements and so forth,” explained Bill Jabjiniak, economic development director for the city of Mesa.

He said Constant Aviation will become the fourth MRO at Gateway Airport when it moves into its nearly 75,000 square foot space.
The company is expected to hire about 200 people.
“Average salary will be about $60,000,” Jabjiniak said. “They’re very skilled positions: aircraft maintenance technicians, avionics technicians, managers and inspectors and there’ll be others that come out as well.”
The Aeronautical Repair Station Association examines states based on the aviation maintenance industry.
It ranks Arizona third for economic activity at more than $4 billion a year.
Constant Aviation is based in Cleveland and has similar facilities in Las Vegas and Orlando. In a press release Stephen Maiden, president and CEO, said, “Our goal is to have the Mesa location operational in the third quarter of 2017.”
