Southeast Aerospace Celebrates 20 Years at the Orlando Melbourne International Airport

Southeast Aerospace is pleased to announce the 20th anniversary at our MLB location. Although SEA has been in business since 1993, May 30th 2017 marks the beginning of a 3rd decade of prosperity in the Melbourne Florida area.

Southeast Aerospace was founded by the Braddock family in Ft. Lauderdale Florida; John B. Braddock III presented the business idea to his wife and two sons after working in the industry 20 years and seeing the need for a higher standard of product and service.

After making it in the avionics business for several years in the overly saturated Ft. Lauderdale market, the Braddock family began discussions of a new location for better opportunities. They had often travelled to the Melbourne area for weekends away from crowded South Florida, and youngest son Joe had experience with the MLB airport due to cross-country flight training. The centrally located and spaciously designed Melbourne Airport was quickly recognized for the potential it presented to their budding business. The decision to transition was made and the rest is history!

Growth in Numbers

SEA began as 4 family members dreaming about their own business, and grew into a locally supporting company employing over 100 people in Melbourne, FL. Not only did the employment numbers grow, but so did the facilities required, progressing from renting an office space to acquiring 5 hangars and 2 office buildings, totaling over 100,000 square feet.
