Aircraft Spruce Celebrates 50 Years as the Home Builder’s Superstore
Since 1965, when Flo Irwin began cutting up Sitka Spruce in her garage, Aircraft Spruce has been responding to the needs of homebuilders. It began locally, soon took on a national scope and today responds to aircraft builders’ and restorers’ needs from around the globe. Anyone thinking seriously about building an aircraft or bringing an antique back to its former glory will benefit from the catalog and buying power of Aircraft Spruce. The Aircraft Spruce parts catalog (available in hard copy format, CD, and on-line) details a vast assortment of materials, tools, books, avionics, pilot supplies and hardware.
Aircraft Spruce celebrates 50 years as the Homebuilder’s Superstore in 2015. It wasn’t that long ago when homebuilders often spent two hours trying to locate or purchase construction materials for every hour they spent fabricating their aircraft. Now, with one phone call, fax, or session on the Internet, it’s possible to order every item needed for any design that’s out there.
Need plans? Aircraft Spruce sells complete sets of plans for 30+ different scratch-build projects and will also sell you a complete materials package for building that design.
