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 very pleased to welcome Boxell’s mechanics to the Flightcheck family.”
