Complete Aircraft Group (CAG) of Exeter, England, has finalized its acquisition of MRO provider Aerocare Aviation Services (AAS), enabling CAG to expand into business aviation. Aerocare is based at Hawarden Chester Airport in Wales.

“[Aerocare] is a company that has developed a great reputation in business aircraft support with a prestigious customer base,” said CAG head of operations Alan Barnes. “We look forward to maximizing group synergy, not just within CAG through our work sourcing and managing high-quality aircraft, aircraft tooling, parts, and components for customers worldwide, but with our aircraft acquisition, teardown, and oversight expertise, and especially with our mobile repair team specialists.”

Further, Barnes said he will work with Aerocare leaders for new business development opportunities and partnerships, including through Aerocare’s paint facility. “We see increasing demand to tap into regional turboprop types for paintwork—such as the de Havilland Q400 and ATR 72, as well as supporting larger business jets like the Bombardier Challenger and Global.”

Additionally, CAG looks to broaden its aftermarket support through the Aerocare acquisition and position the company for preowned business aircraft inspections, according to Barnes.
