In early 2015, Ever Blue Aviation Services, Inc. was born. What started as a dream (read more), evolved into an organized idea, and eventually became a living and breathing corporation. Companies, like humans, follow a certain life span. Even the greatest among us were infants once upon a time. With care and nurturing, with determination and perseverance, and with a little bit of luck, both life and businesses grow. While we may be a new company, Ever Blue Aviation Services, Inc. has a team that boasts over 30 years of experience in the industry, guaranteeing that we not only survive, but thrive. President Gokhan Mekik likens his excitement in the company’s progress to watching his one-year-old daughter. Each day, whole new worlds open for her. One day she crawled, the next she walked. Ever Blue’s growth promises to be equally as exciting. (read less)
