Hand Carry or Fly Away

Our Hand Carry jacks raise loads from 5 to 30 tons and are equipped with a retractable handle. They weigh 50 to 80 lbs. Next we have our Fly Away jacks. They are the subcompact version of our alligator jacks, having the ability to support similar loads, but are lighter in weight for easy portability. Fly away jacks can easily fit into tight spaces, as their base is 9 inches wide or less. Manual pump is standard with an option for air assist.

    We build them and repair them, so you have a one stop source for your jack requirements.

    Jacks really take a beating. Crews demand a lot from their jacks, and may leave them outside or ignore hydraulic leaks until the jack just doesn’t work any longer.

    Repair

    Send us your jacks for repair. Our technicians work with all major brands.  We’ll replace seals, broken parts, and any other worn components.

    Load Test

    We’ll load test the jack and label it, so it will go back into rotation quickly.

    Tripod Jacks: Elevating the Aircraft

    Tripod jacks stabilize the aircraft at the nose, wings, and tail and range from 5 to 120 ton load carrying capacity. Tall tripod jacks come with built-in ladders for ease of use. Spring castors are used for easy placement and release once the lifting process commences.

      Marcos Alonso

      CFO of Solair Group, LLC

      I joined Solair in late 2018, while Scott joined in mid-2019. Our extensive corporate experience allowed us to develop a strategy that would take Solair to the next level. As 2019 closed with a strong finish, Solair was positioned for a promising start to 2020.

      In 2020 the industry was already showing early slowdowns when the COVID pandemic took hold in March. As the volume of orders reduced, we took quick action, temporarily adjusting our business model and operating capacity, which allowed Solair to continue serving our customers, while getting ahead of the curve.

      When the full impact of the pandemic was evident, the market came to a near full stop. We quickly adjusted our plans, which kept the business operating at expected service levels, while continuing to service our customers. Our investors stepped in and acted, providing resources and support at the right time. All realized the situation required a long term outlook, a “holding power.”

      Together with our financial partners, we increased Solair’s efficiency, preparing for the “new market“ to emerge. Constant development with a focus on our customers is how we do business.

      Isn’t that the kind of partner you want to work with?

      Director of Operations

      Be Proud of Yourself

      My career has been spent working in manufacturing. I like planning and working with numbers. Success has come because different people saw my desire to learn and recognized that I was not afraid to work hard-–to challenge myself to reach for what I wanted. 

      Before Scott offered me a position at Solair Group in 2019, I was working for a company that made military products. In just a few years, we had built the plant from 35 to 500 people with government defense contracts and orders that totaled 150 million dollars. 

      My entire career has been spent in manufacturing, creating strong, healthy relationships within the company and with customers. My experience has taught me that it’s not about how big the challenge is, it’s about how much you believe in yourself. 

      I have my dad to thank for my outlook and mindset about work. He taught me to be proud of work and never be afraid of a challenge. My dad didn’t look at situations as a problem, he looked at them as opportunities. He taught me to do the same. 

      I’m Sergio Molina, VP of Operations at Solair Group. We welcome the challenges your business faces. How may I help you today?

      Ricardo Sierra

      Vice-President of Sales

      I joined Solair in January 2021. Scott, Marcos, and I had discussed my taking on the role of VP of Sales in 2020. However, we were in unprecedented times, so we waited until the market stabilized, and then I became a part of the team.

      Having made the choice to work for a smaller firm, in a position where my experience would directly impact the company, I was excited to share my expertise and ideas, as well as learn from individuals who had extensive corporate experience.  

      Over the many years of working in customer service in various business models and industries, I have learned one very important lesson: True customer service is being the solution to a problem.

      No matter the situation, my goal is the same: to maintain the highest level of commitment to and stay in communication with my customers. If a problem happens, I explain it to the customer and share with them the steps taken to deal with the issue. Then, I follow up with them, explaining how the issue will be rectified in the future. 

      Regardless of industry, customers remember a business that puts their needs first, seeing contacts as partnerships, not just transactional connections. 

      I’m Ricardo Sierra, VP of Sales, and I’m your partner at Solair. 

      Scott Cummings

      President of Solair Group, LLC.

      My career in engineering began a couple of years after I was awarded my degree. The first few years between university and my first “real job” at B/E Aerospace was spent on a boat, learning to be a part of a crew, which gave me valuable insight later in my career. 

      After starting at B/E Aerospace as an engineer, I took on larger roles in the company with increasing responsibility. As my positions changed, I noticed that what really got me out of bed in the morning was the opportunity to help others realize their potential and see what they could accomplish by working in concert with one another.  The value that high performing teams, with the right focus and guidance, could create for a business, its customers and our employees.

      In 2019, I joined Solair Group. Stepping again into a role as a new leader. Proud to join a business with such a strong value proposition for our industry.  We’ve taken risks, accelerated change, and laid a foundation for the future with one thing in mind – how can we best serve our customer’s needs.

      I’m Scott Cummings, President of Solair Group. How may I help you?
