Sunvair Aerospace Group is comprised of companies Sunvair and AAIC (Avionics, Accessories, and Instruments). Sunvair contains landing gear and plating services.

Established in 1955, Sunvair is a complete overhaul facility with all major processing completed in house. Sunvair Landing Gear is a full-service landing gear overhaul company. Sunvair’s core overhaul business is full assembly completion and sub-components. Fleet types overhauled include Boeing, Lockheed, Embraer, and Bombardier. Onsite equipment includes more than 40 grinders, lathes, mills, and specialty machines, plus full NDT equipment, paint, hydraulic testing, blasters, ovens, and paint booths. Sunvair recently completed a move into a new 78,000 square foot facility, with the primary purpose to bring plating on site. With this completed, the requirement to ship parts to outside vendors for plating has been eliminated.

Sunvair Plating is a full service metal finishing shop offering plating services to the aerospace industry with an uncompromising commitment to quality, turn time, and customer service. Our plating department is state of the art and employs experienced professionals performing multiple metal processing services with a willingness to take on the most challenging of projects in order to meet our customer’s needs. Sunvair specializes in hard chrome, low hydrogen embrittlement cadmium, bright cadmium, and sulfamate nickel plating. Our plating tanks can accommodate parts ranging in size from bushings that are less than 1” in size to landing gear pistons and cylinders exceeding 100” in length. In addition, our trained and certified employees can provide nital etch inspection and brush cadmium plating services. Our in-house laboratory maintains our solution compositions and ensures that we stay in compliance to our customer’s specifications. Our shop is NADCAP accredited and approved by multiple prime manufacturers. Sunvair is committed to protecting the environment and demonstrates this by operating in full compliance with the stringent requirements of Southern California’s environmental regulations.
