Covid-19 Pandemic Posted on 2 Apr 18:02

  Like everyone, we are facing the challenges of navigating the uncharted territory of the Covid-19 Pandemic.  As a major portion of our business is defense and industrial based, for the time being, we are still manufacturing and shipping.

  As we strive for the safety of our team, we have instituted many new safety procedures, including operating smaller, separated, “split” shifts.

  At times we may be hard to reach by phone.  Instead of leaving a voice mail, please contact us at for the quickest response.  Multiple people monitor this email account on and off site and we will do our best to answer your inquiries as fast as possible. When possible, please place your orders here on our website.

  Hobby orders and repairs are being processed to the best of our ability. Some hobby related items may have limited stock.

Thanks for your support, and most importantly, please stay safe.

2020 Tucson Aerobatic Shootout Posted on 31 Mar 16:19

  As Covid-19 continues to spread, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Tucson Aerobatic Shootout. Normally cancelling the Shootout would be a very difficult decision, but in light of the massive and ongoing impact of the virus, it is actually easy to be realistic and pro-active.    

    Unlike a casual fly-in, a top tier international competition like the Shootout takes a huge amount of preparation from everyone involved. The ongoing effects of the pandemic greatly inhibit those efforts. While we are sad we won’t be hosting all of our friends in Tucson this fall, we look forward to seeing everyone again in 2021.
