VERO BEACH, Florida — Sun Aviation reports it has completed the purchase of the assets of Vero Beach Avionics, integrating all of the avionics shop’s equipment, facilities, technicians and leadership team into the services provided by Sun Aviation.
Located adjacent to Piper Aircraft on the Vero Beach Municipal Airport, Sun Aviation is an Authorized Piper Service Center and a Part 145 Repair Station.
It also retains authorized service and dealership relationships with leading avionics manufacturers. It holds an STC for installation of the Garmin GSR56 system, which provides pilots with access to on-demand global weather information and text/voice communications through the Iridium satellite network. Further, Sun will continue as the authorized East Coast provider for Cutter Aviation’s G950 Meridian Retrofit Program.
“With the integration of the avionics team we are able to provide a new depth and strength of services available to Piper, Pilatus, King-Air, and all aircraft owners,” said Bump Holman, CEO of Sun Aviation.
Rick Peavley (pictured), previous president of Vero Beach Avionics, continues on with Sun Aviation in his role as Avionics Manager. Al Rice, previous Vice-President of Vero Beach Avionics, continues on as Chief Inspector and Avionics Shop Manager.
