Since 2017, uAvionix Australia has been operating as a business name of Capital Aircraft Services; a company possessing vast aviation experience. The aviation expertise garnered by Capital Aircraft Services in the crewed aircraft sector over the past 40 years has been relied upon by the uAvionix Australia side of the business to advise avionic solutions and support UAV and general aviation operators in achieving their airborne mission requirements.
We are pleased to announce that uAvionix Australia will realign more directly with Capital Aircraft Services to assure the UAV sector that avionic decisions made with us are accompanied by the many years of in-house aviation expertise.
The initial phase of this transition begins in February and will bring a new colour scheme and prominence of the Capital Aircraft Services logo to the existing uAvionix Australia website. There are no changes to company ownership or ABN and our same team remain onboard as a reliable source of sales and support of uAvionix products.
