Stevens Aviation, Inc., Greenville-Spartanburg
Since 1950, Stevens Aviation has set the standard for excellence in aircraft sales, service and management. Its rich history began in Greenville, SC when Robert T. Stevens, President of The J.P. Stevens Company, decided to start his own flight department.
By the mid 1950's, Stevens Aviation expanded its capabilities by pumping fuel and doing repairs on transient aircraft. The flight department quickly outgrew its hangar at the Greenville Downtown Airport and in 1962; Stevens became the only FBO at the newly constructed Greenville-Spartanburg Airport.
In 1968, Stevens Aviation became a Beechcraft distributor, accelerating the growth of the company. By the end of the decade, Stevens' capabilities went well beyond aircraft charter, line services and maintenance. Over 100 people were employed at Stevens, the fleet of aircraft had grown to more than two dozen and the company rapidly developed a reputation for being one of the “Best King Air” shops in the region.
By the 1980's, Stevens Aviation had become a full service facility offering maintenance, avionics, completions, sales and FBO services at Nashville, TN, and Dayton, OH.
In the late 90's, Stevens Aviation built its flagship 200,000 square foot completion and maintenance facility in Greenville, SC to accommodate expantion needs due to military contracts.
