Macon-based Lowe Aviation Co. restructures company into two divisions

Macon-based Lowe Aviation Co. has overhauled its corporate structure and separated the fixed based operation division from its avionics and maintenance division.

Henry Lowe, owner of Lowe Aviation, will continue to own and oversee the FBO division and it will still be known as Lowe Aviation Co., according to a news release. The avionics and maintenance division, now known as Lowe Aviation Services, will continue with a new owner, CEO and President Karl Gardner.

Gardner, who owned Gardner Aviation Specialist in Peachtree City from 1993 to 2011, has more than 30 years of customer service experience in avionics and aircraft maintenance, the release said.

"With his unparalleled expertise and commitment to excellence, I am confident that Karl will carry on the legacy of quality and integrity this company was built on," Lowe said in the release.

Lowe Aviation Services will now have two strategically located on-airport facilities, encompassing over 30,000 square feet. They will be located on Falcon Field Airport in Peachtree City and at Middle Georgia Regional Airport in Macon. Both facilities are able to perform all FAA Certified Repair Station capabilities currently associated with Lowe Aviation Services.
