Carolina Aviation Technical Services

Welcome to Carolina Aviation Technical Services, LLC, or as we refer to it as CATS.  CATS was born out of the idea that quality aircraft maintenance should be available at reasonable rates and customer service provided at the highest level possible.  Peter Sistare and Patrick Brady have been involved in aviation maintenance since 1978.  In the Spring of 2012 while sitting around discussing our ideas of how customers should be treated while they have an aircraft in for maintenance, we decided to move forward with a plan that we had pondered for many years, open our own FAA certified repair station.   At CATS we listen to what the customer is asking for and offer opportunities to save them money and time, all being done within the scheduled timeframe and in accordance with approved and accepted maintenance practices.  CATS has aligned themselves with various original equipment manufacturers and aftermarket repair station vendors who offer discounts that we pass along to our clients.

We would like to invite you to stop in for a tour of our facility or contact us to see how we can help service your aircraft.


We provide all types of services for various models of aircraft.  From heavy inspections to oxygen servicing, we have the ability to fulfill your request.    Not all maintenance can be done on a scheduled basis, so our ability to be flexible and accommodate you for “drop-in” maintenance is a plus.
