Manufacturers of Aircraft Tooling & GSE
We are manufacturers, engineers, CNC operators, programmers, carpenters, and electricians.
Metal is our medium; design specifications dictate the equipment we build.
Manufacturing the right tools for your maintenance tasks
Aircraft maintenance tasks require that an MRO or an airline must have the right tools for every bolt, rivet, panel, and system across multiple aircraft platforms. The procurement specialist, the procurement manager, the maintenance manager, and the engineering team are all responsible for acquiring the copious amounts of GSE and tooling your mechanics need to perform the complex testing and specialized maintenance aircraft call for.

We’ve manufactured over 3,000 pieces of equipment for airlines and MROs. Our team can produce the right equipment for just about every maintenance task.

Manufacturing GSE and Tooling is Our Passion
Our facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art machinery, including a Haas UMC750 5 axis CNC mill along with seven other CNC mills and turning centers. Combining these capabilities with a water jet and a wide variety of other metalworking equipment, creates the breadth and flexibility to produce complex parts to a high degree of accuracy. What can we add to your tooling inventory?
What’s in a tool? Steel, fasteners, welds, heat treatment assembly, and top-quality finishing. Our manufacturing engineers know metal and the other materials required to fabricate the tooling your crew needs to perform daily maintenance tasks.
Technical expertise makes all the difference when a mill cuts metal. Our CNC programmers have this superpower. They speak geek. They develop the programs that make our machines dance.
With design details understood and programming completed, CNC operators execute the cut, watching over the machine, making sure the specifications are met. After machining, they inspect the work for quality and accuracy.
At Solair, our focus is on your business.
Our job is to make tooling and GSE acquisition a simple process with short lead times backed by incredible service. Find out what we can do for you.
