The Largest Avionics Repair Facility in Canada.
Our 18000 square foot, state-of-the-art, maintenance-hangar facility was custom built at Pitt Meadows Airport in 2009. It was designed from the ground up to enable our technicians to work efficiently whether they are installing a complete new avionics package or repairing legacy equipment.
