Bud and Pat Field have spent 43 years building an exceptionally strong technical team and like Progressive, they have built their company with an emphasis on customer support,” Todd Collins, CEO of Progressive Air Group of Companies said. “We are all excited to see what we can accomplish when we combine an extraordinary avionics and maintenance company like Brant Aero, with Progressive Air Group’s established position as an international aviation parts distribution company and engine accessories shop.”
“It is really exciting for us to be part of a project of this magnitude. We’ve been customers of Progressive Air Group for decades and it just seemed like a natural fit to partner up and complement each other’s unique skill sets,” stated Bud Field, President of Brant Aero. “With Brant’s years of avionics and on-wing maintenance, and Progressive’s decades of experience with engines and engine accessories, combined with an extensive parts distribution network, we will provide a full service package for our customers”
Rob Wharf, President for Progressive Air Group also announced that Corey Anderson would be returning to the company to head up the “Progressive Air East” initiative.
“Corey was part of the Progressive Air Team for 10 years, and last served as Production Manager and Engine Inspector before taking a sabbatical in Australia,” Wharf said. “In his new role, Corey will relocate to Ontario and be the General Manager overseeing the expanding eastern operations.”
