Sabre Tech, the maintenance operation which lost business after being linked with the ValuJet crash investigation last year, is due to be acquired by Commodore Aviation, the overhaul subsidiary of Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) also based in Miami, Florida. Commodore, which had sales of $35 million in 1996 and expects that to rise to $40-45 million this year, had concentrated on South American contracts but began a push to win more maintenance work from US airlines in 1995.
