BIAero, or Block Island Aero, was named after Block Island, RI. Named by The Nature Conservancy as one of the “Last Great Places” in the Western Hemisphere, the Delia’s hold a great affection for this small island and have worked many years protecting its natural beauty.
BIAero’s foundation is rooted in Michael and Maggie Delia’s first entrepreneurial endeavor, Space Age Aviation, Inc. Following the deregulation of the aviation industry in 1978, Space Age Aviation pioneered and grew the aftermarket segment of the regional aircraft industry and developed strong, long-lasting supplier and customer relationships along with superior product knowledge. The success of Space Age Aviation resulted in the company being acquired in 1999 by Pratt & Whitney Canada which contributed to the creation of Pratt & Whitney Component Solutions. This acquisition is evidence of Space Age Aviation’s prominence in the aviation industry.
In 2004, Maggie and Michael Delia established BIAero to re-enter the aviation industry with a fresh perspective. BIAero is grounded in Space Age Aviation’s preceding standards for an impeccable supply chain.
