Blackhawk Aerospace Technologies


Formerly Columbia Avionics, Blackhawk Aerospace Technologies strives to meet every customer’s individual need. Our leadership team brings more than 110 years of avionics and maintenance experience together to provide an unparalleled level of service and support to every customer.


Blackhawk Aerospace purchased Columbia Avionics and Aircraft Services in May 2021, creating Blackhawk Aerospace Technologies to join the family of Blackhawk companies. Columbia originally incorporated in 1995 when it purchased 17-year-old Jo-Del Electronics. By welcoming Columbia’s combined 43 years of experience, skill, knowledge, customer service, and extensive STC portfolio, Blackhawk Aerospace Technologies expanded its extensive product and services offerings. Now more than ever, the Blackhawk Aerospace family of companies continues its cutting-edge leadership position in aircraft upgrades.
