As the exclusive worldwide aftermarket distributor for Honeywell interior and exterior lighting on all fixed and rotary wing military aircraft, and a 2019 Honeywell Channel Partner of the Year recipient, Aero Precision is used to being in the spotlight.
Headquartered in Livermore, California, Aero Precision has been a Honeywell Channel Partner for over 20 years. From relatively humble beginnings supporting the Honeywell T53 business in one country, Aero Precision is now selling Honeywell military aviation and defence products in over 60 countries.
Since 1993, Aero Precision has specialised in offering OEM aftermarket solutions for military aircraft operators. Today, Aero Precision provides component management, modifications and upgrades, repair and overhaul solutions and best in class customer service to customers around the globe, supporting more than 20 military aircraft and products from more than 30 strategic OEM partners.
Aero Precision’s recent acquisition of Kellstrom Defense has created one of the largest privately owned military aftermarket distribution businesses in the industry. Expanded capabilities now include a dedicated repair and overhaul shop, aviation part manufacturing, engineering services and logistics management from global facilities. The acquisition gives Aero Precision the ability to offer customers a one stop shop for all their spares, repairs and manufacturing needs and extends their global market reach.
The secret of Aero Precisions’ success is, according to Ertugrul Turhal, SVP Business Development, “our customer-centric approach. We know our customers have a choice, so every day we start over to earn our customers trust and exceed their expectations. We listen to our customers. As their needs evolve, so we evolve. Our recent acquisition of Kellstrom is further evidence of this evolution in our offering.”
“Our number one priority is ensuring that our customers’ assets are mission ready – whenever, where ever they need to be deployed. We deliver 100% genuine OEM parts from our stock, to ensure safety, reliability and performance. Our relationships with the OEMs enable us to gain competitive pricing to deliver value to our customers.”
Aero Precision represents Honeywell Aerospace military aviation and defence products to military operators and service centres in more than 60 countries worldwide including avionics, engines and power systems. They are a strategic distributor partner for Honeywell’s Mechanical Components and Air Thermal Systems (MCATS) product line and the worldwide exclusive aftermarket distributor for interior and exterior lighting on all fixed and rotary wing military aircraft, including legacy lighting variants as well as new Retrofit, Modification and Upgrade (RMU) lighting solutions.
Aero Precision and Honeywell are committed to providing operators with comprehensive aircraft solutions to improve reliability and performance. For example, the new state of the art Honeywell Universal LED Search Lights provide pilots with increased visual acuity, while delivering increased life and reliability. The search lights also lower aircraft power consumption, are immersible and have single and dual mode capabilities for increased safety, allowing operators to be flexible and agile while performing critical missions and provides more clarity than legacy Halogen search lights. Aero Precision is at the forefront to certify these products.
Aero Precision was recently recognized as in the Honeywell Channel Partner of the Year Awards for outstanding service to customers globally. It seems that Aero Precision aims high to achieve and succeed for its customers. It seems that being in the spotlight is the ideal place for Aero Precision.
