Precision Heliparts (PHP) was founded in 1993 by Scott James to supply parts to the helicopter industry. Located in Atlanta, Ga., PHP began as a collaborative venture with Precision Accessories & Instruments (PAI), an FAA/JAA instrument and accessory repair station. PAI was well-established in the fixed-wing regional airline market and wanted to expand into the rotary-wing market.

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

In 1999, only 6 years after it was founded with one employee working out of a storage closet , PHP was named one of America’s Fastest Growing Companies by Inc. Magazine.

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

PHP expanded into the Canadian market in 2002, opening Precision Heliparts-Canada (PHP-C) in Vancouver.

When PHP obtained a U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) repair station certification in 2003, it marked a turning point in the company history, launching it into MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) market.
