OUR STORY
MEET OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM

LEADING THE AVIATION INDUSTRY INTO THE NEXT GENERATION

Our team of 36 employees represent six primary departments: engineering & design, quality control, sales & marketing, production, customer service, supply chain management, and administration. Precise Flight is headquartered in a 10,000 square-foot design and production facility adjacent to the runway at the Bend Airport.

Precise Flight is an ISO 9001:2015 certified aviation parts manufacturer through National Quality Assurance (NQA) and is a member of the National Business Aviation Association and Helicopter Association International.

PRECISE FLIGHT’S CAPABILITIES ENCOMPASS 10 PRIMARY AREAS:

Aircraft lighting (external and internal)

Precision Tube Fabrication (fuel lines, oxygen lines, de-icing lines, hydraulic lines, and every type of bent metal tubing)

Environmental control systems

TwistLock Beverage Locking System

Complete engineering testing services

Manufacturing support services

Spoiler systems

OUR STORY

Our story is simple: We’re all about safety and innovation. We pride ourselves on the unrivaled ability to manufacture lighting, oxygen, interior, and electromechanical technologies that improve upon the safety and experience of our markets. And because we consistently provide our customers the same quality they have come to know and expect from our products, we’ve been doing just that for over 40 years.

Precise Flight, Inc., headquartered in Bend, Oregon, was founded in 1980 by two aviation consultants concerned about the increasing speed of general aviation aircraft when coupled with the inability to slow the aircraft down without shock-cooling the engines. In 1982, Precise Flight, Inc. launched its first product, Speedbrakes. Since that time, Speedbrakes have been sold far and wide and have become the gold standard in general aviation spoiler systems.

Also since that time, Precise Flight has grown from a small company with three employees and one product, to a global leader in aviation safety and performance with 36 employees and 10 product lines. Precise Flight is proud to be a small business serving the global aviation community.

Our extensive range of products is equipped on aircraft, airlines and recreational vehicles around the world. Our focus on customer service and quality is relentless, which we’re certain contributes, at least in part, to the company’s transformation from a small Bend, Oregon-based aircraft safety and performance company into a leading global competitor of integrated performance systems.

The Vision: Working together to become the most trusted source of lighting, oxygen, tube fabrication, interior solutions, and electromechanical technologies worldwide.

“What else could we do and how else may we serve our customer?” We will continually ask ourselves these questions and incorporate the answers into our daily objectives in order to succeed in our mission and vision.
