Thunder Bay-headquartered Levaero Aviation has opened a new base at Collingwood Regional Airport (CNY3).

The facility is located in a new 18,000-square-foot hangar that will serve as an additional site for Levaero’s maintenance and aircraft sales departments. The company also has a national sales office in Toronto.

In a news release, the company considers Collingwood “one of the fastest growing regions in Ontario, and a natural fit for Levaero’s expansion in the province.”

Levaero is a full-service maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) aviation company. It’s also the Canadian distributor of Pilatus PC-12 and PC-24 aircraft.

In a statement, Levaero’s vice president of sales Stan Kuliavas said the Collingwood base fits into their expansion plans to service their customer base.

“As the first major OEM authorized dealer and IADA (International Aircraft Dealer Association) accredited broker located at the airport, we look forward to serving our existing customers in the region, as well as assisting others with their aviation needs. The new facility will provide industry leading support to Pilatus aircraft owners, as well as other turboprop and jet operators in need of a reliable maintenance provider.” 

“We are excited to officially welcome Levaero Aviation to CNY3," said Geordie Dalglish, president of the Collingwood Regional Airport. "Our relationship has grown over the years, and we are delighted to be home to their latest expansion. Their presence will support employment in the region, and further expand the draw of our airport,”
