Based at the Colorado Springs Airport, Trine Aerospace and Defense offers engineering, manufacturing and aircraft modi?cation on general aviation, commercial and special-mission aircraft.

In January, the company opened a 30,000-square-foot commercial modi?cation facility at the airport that provides avionics installation and repair.

“This certification, combined with our new state-of-the-art facility, allows us to expand our product offering to both our non-government and government customer base, particularly in the form of avionics and electrical systems modi?cation,” said BRITT HAM, president and chief executive officer. “We are able to utilize our own in-house engineers, technicians and FAA-DERs (designated engineering representatives) to design, install and certify a wide variety of aircraft modi?cations.”
