HOUSTON, Texas/Vernon, BC — Brent and Paulette Holomis report that the legacy of the Chinook and Beaver lines of light-sport aircraft will continue as they have sold the assets of Aircraft Sales and Parts, Ltd. to John and Kim Couch of Gloster Aerodrome (1XA7) near Sealy, outside of Houston.
The new company, Aeroplane Manufactory (AM) will immediately begin producing parts for the Chinook Plus 2 and Beaver RX550 for delivery in early 2014, according to John Couch. It is anticipated full kits will be available later in 2014.
“I knew before we met John and Kim, given their set up and facility, that they were suited for this business — in some regards better than us — but now having met them both, I know 100% that they are ideal for this business and its success,” Paulette Holomis said. “They have the passion, the right attitude and work ethic it takes to make this business work and prosper. We look forward to working with John and Kim to make this happen.”
