ATLANTA, August 4, 2014 – Professional Aviation Associates, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced that its Parker Hannifin Stratoflex hose shop recently received recertification and has increased in size and capabilities.
Professional Aviation Associates is a global distributor and a certified FAA/TSO Parker Hannifin Stratoflex manufacturing hose shop. In early May, the company moved into a new 46,000 square-foot state-of-the-art Distribution Facility close to Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport allowing the company to double the size of the hose shop from its previous size of 1000 square feet to 2000 square feet. After set up, the new shop was audited and recertified by Parker Hannifin Stratoflex ensuring no disruption of production.
“The additional space facilitates new fabrication equipment we have recently acquired and triples our production capacity,” said President of Professional Aviation Associates Brian Dannewitz. “We are adding new aircraft platforms to our support capabilities while ensuring the fastest turn times and competitive pricing to meet our customer’s needs.”
Dannewitz said the company whose manufacturing team has more than 30 years of Parker Hannifin Stratoflex hose building experience, now has the capability to fabricate hoses of up to 1 ½ inches in diameter. It also has added various machinery and tooling, including two Stratoflex T01-100 assembly machines, a Stratoflex T08-100 crimper and a Stratoflex T05-143 test stand.
Professional Aviation Associates can provide single hose or complete hose kits as well as custom-built assemblies for turboprop, fixed wing or rotorcraft.
