Unical Aviation Inc., a leading provider of aircraft parts and components to the global commercial aerospace market, announced today the acquisition of CAVU's component repair operations (CAVU Component Repair LLC) from CAVU Aerospace. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

CAVU Component Repair LLC is an FAA-approved Part 145 Repair Station in Mesa, Arizona, with an 80,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility for aircraft component repair.

With more than 85 million parts and over 1.3 million unique airframe and engine part numbers in stock, Unical is one of the largest suppliers of new and used serviceable material for the global aerospace industry.

CAVU Aerospace is a long-time supplier of services to Unical.

"CAVU Aerospace is an outstanding partner and its component repair team has provided us exceptional service for many years. We are excited they are joining the Unical team and we expect a seamless transition."

Unical Aviation was acquired by Platinum Equity last year.
