Crownair’s Mc Clellan-Palomar Airport (CRQ) in Carlsbad is best known for it’s well trained technicians with more than twenty years experience along with high maintenance and avionics ratings.  

Constant Aviation -  a maintenance, repair, and overhaul facility with a center at Birmingham International Airport - specializes in airframe and engine maintenance, major repairs, avionics installation and repair and provides customers with a one-stop shop option when it comes to maintenance events.  

“Both Crownair and Constant Aviation are equipped with highly skilled professionals that add a great deal of value to the P.180 Avanti support network,” says Piaggio America President and CEO, John M. Bingham. “With an authorized Service Center network that has more than doubled in the last twelve months and with further additions to the network due before the year end , we are confident our P180 Avanti  owners and operators will have the comprehensive factory authorized support they need  and now it will be even closer at hand.”
