Nanci & Jim Irwin

Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Company turns 53 years old in 2018 , and we’ve come a long way since Flo and Bob Irwin started shipping orders for aircraft grade spruce from the basement of our family home in Fullerton.

Back in 1965, Aircraft Spruce had one full time employee (Flo) and one product; aircraft spruce. Over the years, every type of aircraft part and pilot product has been added to our inventory, and the company catalog has grown to over 900 pages and over 80,000 products. The one employee has increased to over 150 today. From the day Flo opened the doors in 1965, to 1980 when we took the helm, all the way to 2018 , the goal of our company is to offer the best price on the products we sell and the best service in the industry.

Our growth over the years has been made possible by the support of our customers worldwide, and every member of the Aircraft Spruce team is committed to living by our Mission Statement on every order, every day.

We hope that you will enjoy using this latest edition of the Aircraft Spruce catalog to locate the aircraft parts and pilot supplies you need. You can also shop on-line at our new and improved website at Place your orders by phone with our knowledgeable, friendly sales agents, fax your order to our 24 hour fax line, or order online through our easy-to-use website.

Our thanks to all of our customers worldwide for their patronage over the past 53 years; we look forward to serving you soon.
