Aircraft Parts Corporation (APC)
In December 2008, Avionic Instruments LLC and our sister company, Skurka Aerospace Inc., took over the Starter Generator and Generator Control Unit product lines from Aircraft Parts Corporation (APC).
Due to the core competencies and technological capabilities of each company, the APC Starter Generator and Generator Control Unit product lines were separated. AI² has assumed full control over the GCUs, while Skurka has assumed control of the S/G product line. AI² and Skurka currently work together to provide solutions for multiple S/G and GCU platforms.
Since acquiring the Generator Control Unit (GCU) product line from Aircraft Parts Corporation, Avionic Instruments has continued to deliver on legacy business as well as design and develop products for new applications. A team of our top Production, Supervisory, and Quality personnel was assembled and worked closely with the APC work force to ensure that all product knowledge was gathered and any “tribal knowledge” was transferred to configuration controlled production drawings. As a result Avionic Instruments has become a trusted partner to companies such as Bell Helicopter, Bombardier, Cessna, Eurocopter, Agustawestland, Hawker Beechcraft, Sikorsky, the U.S Army and Rolls Royce.
This has also allowed AI² to continue to bid on new business and design and develop Generator Control Units that meet requirements on new applications.
