Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) July 10, 2014

As the first acquisition in 2006 by Oklahoma City-based private equity firm, Acorn Growth Companies, Commuter Air Technology (CAT) began growing rapidly in both revenue and capabilities.

Constantly innovating, the company is currently working on a variety of performance enhancing certifications to increase payload, reduce gross weight and add range to the King Air family, as well as numerous passenger communications, entertainment and avionics enhancements.

As part of AGCs portfolio, CAT has grown from a company of six employees, exclusively serving the general aviation community, to an enterprise with over 100 employees. CATs highly respected integration technology services key business and government customers around the globe.

CATs reputation as an industry leader has grown rapidly as we added mission support capabilities to our 30 years of King Air and aviation expertise, said Darryl Wilkerson, President of the company. Were pleased that both the Department of Defense and commercial customers turn to us for solutions to support challenging special operations applications, and for innovative products to enhance their aircraft.

The depth and breadth of aviation technologies and mission support services CAT provides is equally impressive. The company is now a prime contractor and sub-contractor of numerous government and commercial initiatives.

CAT possesses over 50 FAA Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) that have become instrumental in the Department of Defenses airborne intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) transformation.

Founded in 1986, CATs research and development continues to generate new ideas and products that enhance aircraft performance and value. Company services also include training, pilot and crewmember support, aircraft maintenance, logistics support, fee-for-service aircraft operations, and ground support.
