Aircraft Maintenance & Inspections – Non-Commercial
With $1.2M in projected revenue for 2021!
This corporate aircraft maintenance business has $1.2M in projected revenue for 2021! With 25+ recurring clients, their primary customer base consists of aircraft managers and brokers. Aircraft maintenance accounts include routine maintenance, inspections, and annual inspections required by the FAA. Two FAA certified mechanics lead the team – one IA Certified and one AP certified. Multi-engine planes require inspections after a certain number of hours flown. Current customers allow access to a maintenance portal that shows hours logged per aircraft, giving them the capability of knowing the work that needs done in the near future and securing the work with the aircraft managers. The FAA requires a logbook entry for each inspection; this team requires payment from their customer prior to logging the inspection, ensuring full and on-time payments each time. Sale sizes range from $2k (for small maintenance jobs) to $22k for an average inspection, all the way up to $50-$60k for the larger maintenance projects.
In June of 2020, the business expanded into three hangers, each approximately 3,600 sq. ft. Currently, one hanger is being rented by an outside party ($2,000/month), and one hanger is a double without an inner wall. The rented hanger was built to allow the business to pursue military contracts, as those planes require a separate facility from commercial/general aviation.
Priced at $656,000, a buyer would see a 138% return on investment in the first year after debt payments. With ample room for growth, this business has tremendous potential! Pursuing military contracts would boost revenue, as well as taking on ex-military aircraft mechanics in apprentice roles for 3 months and setting up satellite offices at other airports that can’t justify a full-time maintenance facility. The owner who manages this side of the company is a service-disabled veteranwho could stay on in a consulting capacity and pursue the military contracts, then subcontract the work out to the new owner.
