Aero-Instruments has acquired SpaceAge Control’s air data product line.
Aero-Instruments manufactures air data sensors for general aviation, commercial aviation, rotorcraft, defense, business jet and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle markets. The acquisition will allow Aero-Instruments to enter new markets as well as enhance and expand existing product lines, according to company officials. SpaceAge Control will continue to develop and sell its line of displacement sensors to customers worldwide.
“This acquisition allows Aero-Instruments to expand our product offerings to include angle of attack, temperature sensors, air data booms, trailing cones, and trailing bombs, while entering the Flight Test Equipment market and significantly strengthening our position in the growing Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) market,” said Dan Pappano, president of Aero-Instruments.
Aero-Instruments Air Data Sensors measure critical air data parameters and provide information for cockpit display and to the flight control and flight management systems.
