GULF COAST Avionics is appointed
exclusive PROVIDER OF avionics installation and repair Services for
Leading Edge Aviation
Opened in 1994, Leading Edge Aviation is one of the oldest and most
factory-authorized Cirrus Aircraft Authorized Service Centers in the United States.
Lakeland, FL (March 30, 2016) — Rick Garcia, President and CEO, Gulf Coast Avionics Corporation announced today that Factory Authorized Cirrus Service Center, Leading Edge Aviation has selected the company as its exclusive provider of avionics installation, repair and troubleshooting. The appointment follows Leading Edge Aviation’s move to two hangars adjacent to the Gulf Coast Avionics facility at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport (KLAL).
“We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to work closely with Leading Edge Aviation’s President Mark Moberg and his entire team,” Garcia said. “They’ve earned a reputation as one of the top Cirrus Service Centers in the country by treating their customers with integrity and settling for nothing but the best. To have Leading Edge Aviation place its trust in Gulf Coast Avionics is something we are all proud of.”
“When I decided to move from Tampa, I looked at three airports in the area and after talking to Rick it became crystal clear that relocating to Lakeland and establishing a relationship with Gulf Coast Avionics was the best possible choice,” Moberg said. “The management team behind Lakeland Linder Regional Airport is one of those rare groups that wants to be proactive in the growth of aviation. It’s nice to go where you know your business is a valued part of the community.”
Moberg also said that the opportunity to be located across the taxiway from Gulf Coast Avionics was another differentiator in Lakeland’s favor.
“We’ve done thousands of inspections, repairs and upgrades to Cirrus aircraft over our 32 year history and while those services are the core of our business, today avionics repairs and upgrades are a growing part of our future,” he said. “Cirrus owners love their airplanes and having the latest in avionics capabilities is high on their priority list.”
“When you can literally walk a customer across the taxiway so they can see the quality and professionalism at GCA, it does nothing but add to their confidence and comfort level that their airplane is in the best of hands,” Moberg said. “We feel strongly that Gulf Coast Avionics is the perfect ‘partner’ to help Leading Edge Aviation continue to grow.”
