Safe Flight Instrument Corporation has been added to the Loar Group family of companies. Headquartered in White Plains, New York, Safe Flight is a designer and manufacturer of proprietary aerospace electronic products and systems with its products installed on nearly two-thirds of the world's aircraft. In addition, all Safe Flight's products are proprietary, whereby it owns all key intellectual property rights. Its products include flight instrumentation, guidance and controls, and it is a premier manufacturer of aircraft lift instrumentation. Customers include leading aircraft OEMs across all market segments with approximately 75 per cent of Safe Flight's products sold to the general or business aviation end markets, with the balance primarily sold to the commercial aerospace end market.
“The acquisition of Safe Flight adds a strong management team, along with expanded engineering, design, manufacturing, repair and overhaul talent to Loar, allowing us to address additional unique and niche manufacturing and technological challenges faced by our customers,” states Dirkson Charles, CEO of Loar Group. “By adding Safe Flight to Loar's suite of product offerings we have added product lines that include stall warning and protection, automatic throttle systems, fuselage airflow angle sensors, control shakers and icing condition detectors, just to name a few of the specialised capabilities we have added to our family of companies. With over 85 per cent of Loar's sales coming from innovative and proprietary products we are uniquely positioned to solve problems for our customers.”
Loar Group's acquisition of Safe Flight creates a partnership that allows Safe Flight to continue serving its existing customers while providing additional growth capital and human resources to meet expanded future customer needs.
