Flightcheck Commercial Aviation Services Adds to Line Maintenance Platform

Bensenville, IL (April 15, 2022) – Flightcheck Commercial Aviation Services, a leading provider of aircraft line maintenance, ground handling, and de-icing services, announced today that it acquired the line maintenance division of Boxell Aerospace.

Founded in 2006 by Lance Syner, Boxell Aerospace’s line maintenance division provides outsourced aircraft maintenance services to airline operators at Charleston International Airport, Savannah/ Hilton Head International Airport, and Hilton Head Island Airport. Following the transaction, Boxell will continue to operate its aviation products division.

“We are extremely excited for Flightcheck to continue providing customers in Charleston, Savannah, and Hilton Head with high-quality aircraft maintenance services,” said Mr. Syner. “Flightcheck’s strong reputation and shared core values made them a natural successor to Boxell’s line maintenance division.”  

“The acquisition of Boxell’s line maintenance division marks the start of a new and exciting growth period for Flightcheck,” said Wayne Jimerson, Flightcheck’s CEO and President. “Boxell established a leading regional market position by providing best-in-class customer service and demonstrating an unwavering commitment to safety, making this a compelling opportunity to expand Flightcheck’s footprint into the Southeast region and deliver top-quality services to our customers across multiple locations. We are very pleased to welcome Boxell’s mechanics to the Flightcheck family.”
