Over 20 years ago Aviation Fabricators (AvFab) opened for business in Clinton, Missouri to revolutionize the way Corporate and General Aviation interior parts are supported. Company founders G.R. Lowe and Jeff Lowe noticed their customers were requesting interior products that would enhance the value and versatility of their aircraft along with Certified Repairs that would return interior parts to service in a timely manner.
These needs became evident during GR and Jeff's operation of Central Airmotive, the first company they founded together in 1980. Initially, obtaining F.A.A. Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approved Side-Facing Divans were a focus, then pursuing additional product lines over the years including Jump Seats, High Density "Airline Style" seats, non-Medevac Stretcher Kits, and Cabin Table and Sidewall Kits, among others. Several STC's were acquired when AvFab bought San Antonio-based Custom Aircraft Conversions, while others were purchased from Branson Aircraft, Denver CO. AvFab now has well over 100 STC'd products which it ships globally, the majority of which were developed in-house.
Special Missions and ISR Aircraft Seating:
AvFab has recently turned considerable attention toward supporting Special Missions and ISR aircraft seating needs. These products include developing a Beechjet Operator's Seat for the US military T1A "Jayhawk". AvFab also supplies High-Density Seats, Observer Seats, and special missions Divans that are in place with domestic and foreign governments and military entities around the world.
Hydrolok Seat Recline Cylinders:
By listening to our Customer's needs, AvFab has developed unique FAA Certified Repairs for many different interior parts that are no longer supported or are not supported in a timely manner. The AvFab team prides themselves in quick-turnaround, high-quality repairs, many of which are offered by no other company in the world. An example of this is AvFab's pioneering the quick-turn around overhaul of Hydrolok seat recline cylinders to "like new" condition at the fraction of the cost of a new replacement cylinder.
AvFab is a long-standing member of the NBAA and NATA.
The World's largest Inventory Of New and Used Interior Parts:
Sister company Central Airmotive supplies new and serviceable OEM interior parts, housing the world's largest inventory of new and used interior parts for single and multi-engine piston, turbine, and bizjet aircraft including every model of Beechcraft, most of the Cessna and Citation series, Hawker, Gulfstream, Falcon, Challenger, Learjet, and others in over 90,000 square feet of warehouses.
