A quick, go-to reference for aircraft ground support equipment along with personal chat support from our CGSE Team – anytime day or night.
“CGSE’s commitment to provide the best service is outstanding.” -Morris from California
“I want to express my appreciation to CGSE for supplying a product that met all our expectations. The customer service and delivery time frame was exceptional by all means. We purchase lots of GSE equipment and there is no doubt that our preferred vendor is CGSE. Thank you again for always coming through for us on all our GSE equipment needs.” -Linda from Florida
“These guys are consistent and reliable in their delivery. The constant follow up and customer support is second to none.” -Shaun from Jamaica
“It is clear why CGSE is respected name in the aviation industry. From the initial RFQ, to the final sale, you made customer service a priority. A cabin pressurization unit is a sizable purchase for a growing business like Challenger Aviation Services. You made every effort you could to make it fit our budget. When we finally made the decision it was after normal business hours on a Friday evening. I was surprised when you answered the phone and had already made arrangements. John, you even made the funds transfer easy. We were astonished when we returned from lunch the following Monday to find a brand new shiny box waiting for us in the hangar.” – Challenger Aviation
