The Colorado Springs Business Journal


Trine Aerospace & Defense has earned Federal Aviation Administration Part 145 approval as a certified repair station. Based at the Colorado Springs Airport, Trine Aerospace & Defense offers engineering, manufacturing and aircraft modification on general aviation, commercial and special mission aircraft. It also specializes in avionics and installation repair.

The facility provides engineered solutions that add enhanced capabilities to aircraft in support of Part 23 and 25 aircraft manufacturers, owner/operators, air carriers and defense contractors that perform special mission aircraft integration and modernization.

In January, the company opened a 30,000-square-foot commercial modification facility at the airport that provides avionics installation and repair. Services include major alteration and major repair design, fabrication and analysis. Trine is authorized dealer for Garmin International, Cobham and Technisonic Communications.

“This certification combined with our new state-of-the-art facility now 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 modification,” said Britt Ham, the company’s 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 modifications.”
