PAST & FUTURE
Driven by a childhood dream, determination and ambition to succeed, Mr. Andres Posse, an avid pilot and aviation aficionado established Aviation Brake in 1987. It all started as a small dream with the hope that through hard work and persistence, Aviation Brake would one day become a reputable, leading and solid repair station offering a myriad of solutions to the airline industry.
From a tiny 500 SF facility large enough to support 3 staff members, our founder, an inspector and an assistant, managed the brake shop and personally delivered each completed project in a pick up truck all within a 24-hour period. Customers quickly began to appreciate the quality of our work, our turnaround time, and especially the superb level of customer service. Our dedication coupled with the advantage of being one of the few shops offering these services gave us a key position in the industry, and since then Aviation Brake has been on the rise.
In addition, we expanded to offer services to diversified markets internationally as well as locally, including to regional, corporate, commuter, private, military and business aircrafts.
Today our company is equipped with our in-house lab, the latest in technology, and an invaluable staff composed of lead mechanics, inspectors, supervisors, purchasing and quality control departments, as well as our management team led by our Founder and C.E.O., who continues to be a visionary always searching for ways to exceed our customers’ expectations, and take our company to a next level.
