No other company in the world has completed as many aircraft as we have, and at the highest level of quality and safety that we have. We are honored to have worked with Continental for the past two decades, and look forward to continue growing with them as their partner of choice in the many years ahead.

Leading Edge Aviation Services (LEAS), the largest commercial aircraft painting company in the world, announced today that it has reached an unprecedented commercial services milestone by painting the 600th aircraft for Continental Airlines in its advanced Victorville, CA facility. Since first partnering with Continental in 1994, LEAS has emblazoned virtually every kind of aircraft - from Md-80 to 777 with the airline's now famous blue and gold branding at its state-of-the-art aircraft paint shop.

"This is a remarkable achievement that's truly unmatched in today's aircraft services industry," said Mike Manclark, CEO, LEAS. "No other company in the world has completed as many aircraft as we have, and at the highest level of quality and safety that we have. We are honored to have worked with Continental for the past two decades, and look forward to continue growing with them as their partner of choice in the many years ahead."

As one of Continental's longest-standing vendors, LEAS has emerged as the world leader in the commercial aircraft painting industry with consistent delivery, dedication to its customers, and commitment to innovation. Able to meet even the most aggressive scheduling requests both on-time and on-budget; the company has become the go-to choice for leading airlines such as Continental, which has contracted LEAS through 2014.

"In today's challenging business climate, airlines need to know their partners have the facilities and ability to improve turn times and accommodate their ever-changing schedules," added Manclark. "That's what sets us apart. Whether its one plane or four planes, we can work with any schedule, any plane, and deliver it on any timeline. We thank our employees at our Victorville and other aircraft painting facilities for their continued hard work and focus on quality that has made this remarkable milestone possible."
