Progressive Air Group acquires Brant Aero


Progressive Air Group has finalized the acquisition of Brant Aero, creating Canada’s largest provider of complete avionics, airframe, piston-engine repair and overhaul and turbine-engine inspection and maintenance services for single- and multi-engine aircraft.

Based at Brantford Airport in Ontario, Canada, the new company will continue to operate as Brant Aero while a new parts distribution center based at the facility will operate as Progressive Air East.

“I feel very privileged to have served the aviation community for the past 44 years,” stated Bud Field, Brant Aero president. “Now I am very pleased that Brant Aero will continue into another era under the very capable leadership of the highly-respected owners behind the Progressive Air Group.”
