PrimeFlight acquisition builds on cleaning capabilities
The team at International Aero is about to become part of a larger network. The additional support and growth opportunities offered by PrimeFlight underpin this advantageous acquisition.
Dan Bucaro sees growth in the aircraft cleaning space for PrimeFlight.

Texas-headquartered PrimeFlight Aviation Services has acquired the assets of California-based aircraft cleaning and maintenance company International Aero, shortly after its purchase of Kansas-based Appearance Group in December.

“This acquisition furthers our growth in the aircraft cleaning space, boosting our expertise and helping us to become the premier aircraft cleaning provider in the general aviation industry,” explains PrimeFlight president and CEO Dan Bucaro.

International Aero operates at Long Beach, Savannah/Hilton Head International, Van Nuys and Tuscon International airports, providing OEMs, operators and corporate flight departments with a wide range of services to maintain, repair and replace every aesthetic aspect of the aircraft from cleaning and detailing to painting and placarding. The company will continue to operate under its current name while it works through the integration process. International Aero Engineering was not included in the sale.

International Aero president Jonathan Saltman says: “This acquisition means our aircraft appearance business will become part of a larger network with additional support and growth opportunities for our team members, allowing us to help PrimeFlight build the industry's preferred aviation services network.”
