A Brief History
Lesson on Aircraft Sales and Parts
Aircraft Sales and Parts, established in 1988, ultimately started with the enthusiasm felt by Brent Holomis (now, President of ASAP) who began his ultralight flying in the original Birdman Chinook WT2S. His hopes and dreams were to resurrect the Chinook aircraft that had dominated the light aircraft industry in the early 1980's. In late 1989, that dream came true when after nearly 2 years of redesign work was completed with the assistance of engineers from the University of Alberta, he was able to introduce our new Chinook Plus 2, with the wider cabin, the stronger undercarriage, the new modified wings and tail along with the more resilient ceconite fabric. The Chinook Plus 2 is our leader in sales and continues to be a force in the light aircraft industry.
In 1993, we again moved forward in the light aircraft industry by providing parts and service for the existing Beaver RX550, RX28 and RX35 all aircraft manufactured by a company no longer operating. As over 2000 of the previous models existed, we were able to assist many builders with parts and service that were not available anywhere else. The demand to continue offering the Beaver aircraft as a kit was high and so in 1996 we introduced the new Beaver RX 550 Plus with new wings, new tail, stronger shock system, better performance but still keeping with its famous docile easy flight of the original Beaver.
Through the years our company has grown to have two facilities; one in Alberta and our main sales office in Vernon, BC. In 1999 we designed the Summit Powered Parachute which expanded our product line even further and in 2005 introduced yet another member of the PPC family our Steel Breeze and our Mini Breeze conforming to the FAR 103 regulations.
Aside from the excellence in our products, customer service is as important to us and so no matter where you are in the world, Aircraft Sales and Parts promises to deliver on both. We attest our continued success to this important combination that has always been our philosophy. Deal with the Best……and out fly the Rest!!!!
