The announcement confirms CAVU’s commitment to growth and this additional repair offering will further expand the capabilities available with CAVUSmartMRO™ service offerings.

With over 30 + years’ experience in the aviation & aerospace industry focused on component repairs, Hyde is an experienced commercial aviation MRO professional. Prior to joining CAVU, Hyde spent thirteen years in the Air Force, three years managing the accessory shop at Dynair then was later hired by Lee Benson to start the commercial overhaul division of ABLE Engineering. He was also one of the founding members of ATC Components and most recently served as their President & CEO. Hyde will assume the role of Vice President of CAVU Component Repair.

“We are excited about having Roy on our team. His knowledge of repairs is outstanding and his attention to detail coupled with his industry respect make him the perfect solution to our repair growth strategy” said Ken Kocialski, Partner CAVU Aerospace.

The new repair facility will be branded as CAVU Component Repair and will be headquartered in Phoenix, AZ. It will offer repair on flight controls, flap tracks, flap carriages, and landing gear for most Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier and Embraer aircraft types. They will look to expand their repair capabilities in the future. CAVU Aerospace will also enhance their repair process with the implementation of their patent pending CAVUSmartTags™ technology to provide additional efficiencies for material direct from the point of dismantle.
