Arlington, WA, October 14, 2017:
We are pleased to announce that Glasair Aviation USA, LLC has sold the Glasair II and III product line assets to Advanced Aero Components (“AAC”). Ian Baker, AAC CEO, has big plans for the aircraft. “AAC is going to rejuvenate the product line – new kits will be available in an
infused carbon fiber version creating a much lighter, stronger airframe while reducing build times. In addition, existing AAC modifications will be incorporated into the kits.” The Glasair II and III will be rebranded as the G2 and G3 sport aircraft under the AAC banner and AAC will provide customer support for existing Glasair II and III builders. Support will include a web store for
parts. We look forward to assisting Ian and his team with the
transition. Please see http://advanced-aero.com/news/ for more information and updates regarding the transition.
Nigel Mott, President of Glasair, also sees the sale as a very positive move. “The sale of the Glasair II & III assets allows us to focus on the Part 23 certification of the Sportsman 2+2, production ramp-up of the Merlin LSA, and support for existing Sportsman and Glastar owners.”
37 Years of Record-Setting Performance
For 37 years the Glasair series has represented the ultimate in high performance kitbuilt aircraft. Their sleek lines and Lycoming performance ensure your longest trips take place in hours, not days. Their rock-solid composite construction and fully aerobatic skills provide thrills to remember a lifetime. Yet their approach and touchdown speeds and roomy interiors offer easy, sure handling and cross-country travel in comfort. Builders find Glasair-series aircraft satisfy their every desire in a fast platform. And it doesn’t hurt that a Glasair’s handsome good looks leave you feeling like a rock star at the local fly-in!
Even though Glasair Aviation no longer pursues sales of Glasair-series kits, we continue to offer the fullest support possible in technical advice and available parts to our direct customers and those folks picking up full- or partially complete aircraft on the secondary market.
