YOUR WORLDWIDE FIXED WING AIRCRAFT RESOURCE

Founded in 2013 in Brisbane, Australia, Precision Accessories and Instruments (PAI-AU) is a leading provider of products and value-added services to the worldwide aerospace and defense industries. PAI-AU and sister company Precision Heliparts (PHP-AU) were both founded as operating companies of the Precision Aviation Group (PAG), which has a large customer base in the Australasia Region.

PAI-AU and PHP-AU are both managed under the leadership of Director of Sales Jordan Webber and Director of Operations Chris Slade, who bring significant expertise in the management of aviation sales and services to PAG. Both companies are supported by the global resources of the PAG family of nine operating companies, which collectively hold a 75,000 line item-inventory of accessories, avionics and instruments. 

History of PAG Companies

In 1993, Precision Avionics & Instruments (PAI), located in Atlanta, Ga., was well-established in the fixed-wing regional airline market. PAI wanted to expand into the rotary-wing market and entered a collaborative venture with Precision Heliparts (PHP), founded that year by Scott James to supply parts to the helicopter industry.

In 1995, PAI moved to its present location on Lake Mirror Road adjacent to Atlanta International Airport (KATL) sharing building space with PHP.

In the late 1990s, PAI was acquired by Dallas Airmotive/BBA, leaving PAI and PHP independent of each other, though they continued to have a close working relationship, sharing the same address.

PAI and PHP Companies Unite

By 2004, Dallas Airmotive/BBA Aviation’s primary customer base, domestic regional airlines, had phased out rotary-wing aircraft. This opened up the opportunity for PHP to acquire PAI, because PHP had a large international customer base of operators with both fixed and rotary-wing aircraft in their fleets. PHP had obtained a U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) repair station certification the year before and entered the MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) market. The acquisition of PAI gave PHP the ability to expand MRO services into the fixed-wing market.

This acquisition also led to the creation of Precision Aviation Group (PAG) as the parent company for PAI, PHP,and the PHP-C , which PHP had launched in 2002.

Launch of Sister Companies Brings PAI Closer to Customers around the World

Precision Accessories & Instruments Canada (PAI-C) was founded in 2007 with the acquisition of Pegasus Aircraft Components of Vancouver. The following year, PAI-C moved into consolidated operation with sister company PHP-C in a new 15,000 square-foot facility. The integration of the two facilities would help the companies provide better turn times for their MRO customers. 

In 2013 PAG opened Precision Accessories and Instruments (PAI-AU) in Brisbane, Australia to be closer to customers in the Australasia Region.

Today, PAI and its sister companies PAI-C and PAI-AU are among PAG’ s nine operating companies. Together they have locations in the United States, Canada, Singapore and Australia and form a global network of support that offers PAG’s trademarked ISMRO® (Inventory Supported Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul Services ) for both fixed-and rotary-wing operators. PAG is one of only 11 companies worldwide outside OEMs (original equipment manufacturer) to collectively hold all FAA, EASE, AO and AMO certifications.
