One of the most widely used light single engine aircraft in the world, the Squirrel remains as popular today as when it was introduced in 1975. Now developed into the EC130, H&G have purchased various strategic packages of AS350 material over the years to bolster our existing OEM capability on the aircraft.
H&G was founded by an avionics engineer back in 1969. As a result electrical systems, cockpit displays, navigation systems, instruments, indicators, antennas, altimeters and so on, have been at the centre of our business ever since. We provide everything from technical support, obsolescence services and LRU teardown, through to cockpit upgrades to altimeters, transponders, dials, connectors, gears and electrical chassis. We provide state of the art Glass Cockpit and EFIS Exchange programmes, AHARS, TCAS, RVSM, TAWS, FMS, CVR, FDR, Gyroscopes, Autopilot and ADIRUs, all drawn from our UK stock of avionics material and expertise. We stock and distribute LRUs and spares from the following manufacturers:
H&G offer a complete sale, loan and exchange pool on the EFI890R Advanced Flight Display manufactured by Universal Avionics. EFI-890R is a forward-fit application in over 40 aircraft types. It is certified for a full range of platforms, meeting certification requirements for Part 23, 25, 27 and 29 operators worldwide. These aircraft include the Boeing B737-300/400, Bombardier Dash 8-100/200/300 and Q400 series, Saab 340B and Saab 340B+, ATR72, Falcon 900 Business Jet, King Air B200, Casa 212 and Dornier 228. In addition to the MFDs, we also carry inventory for the FMS, DCU, EIU and RCU elements of the system.
H&G stock a wide range of aircraft antennas manufactured by the following OEMs:
Our inventory covers many aircraft systems that require antennas such as ADF, TCAS, SATCOM, VHF and UHF.
Both rotary and fixed wing ELT and PLBs are covered with agreements in place with manufacturers such as:
We carry inventory of the complete ELT and PLB unit and also the batteries and kits required for fitment of the ELT to the aircraft.
H&G can also code your ELT to any aircraft designation within the COSPAS SARSAT system.
One of our core capabilities lies in aircraft power generation. Our rotable inventory includes Generators, Starter Generators, IDGs, APUs, APU Starters and associated spares parts for these systems such as brush kits, rings, coils, stators and housings via our relationship with three of the largest OEMs for this material in the world - Hamilton Sundstrand, Pratt & Whitney Canada and Safran (formerly Goodrich Power Systems).
And as aircraft consume more power than ever, H&G stock many operationally critical battery types including ELT, Standby and Main.
Away from the powerplant core, H&G has invested in many accessories crucial to the operation of the aircraft engine. These include FCUs, HMUs, Fuel Governors, Prop Governors, Harnesses, Speed Sensors, Actuators, Ignition Units and Hydraulic Pumps. We work closely with the manufacturers of these products such as Goodrich Fuel Systems, Eaton Aerospace, Esterline (formerly Weston Aerospace), Woodward Governor, Pratt & Whitney, Honeywell Aerospace and Zodiac.
We are appointed distributors for Sennheiser, Peltor 3M and Clement Clarke Communications, providing a complete range of fixed wing, rotary and ground mechanic headsets. These headsets are used in all Airbus and Boeing classic and next generation aircraft and we can also repair and offer a full exchange and warranty service on all existing Sennhesier and Peltor models. Should you require an alternate headset, we also support David Clarke, Telex and Bose units for both sales and repairs. We specialise in volume orders for airline fleet requirements.
Internal and external, filament and LED, H&G stocks a range of aircraft lights and accompanying systems. From manufacturers such as Honeywell Grimes, Goodrich Hella and Zodiac Aerospace, we stock lighting bulbs, elements, assemblies, power supplies and housings for Airbus A320, A320neo, Boeing B737NG, B777, Embraer E190 and E170 aircraft. Our lighting product range includes, Landing Lights, Upper and Lower rotating beacons, Logo lights, Strobe lights and Wing Tip lighting. We also offer technical advice on upgrading your aircraft to the latest standard of LED lighting for increased MTBF rates and greater aircraft availability.
We stock Oxygen and Safety Equipment applicable to both internal and external systems on the aircraft, covering both aircraft and passenger safety. These products include PBEs, Smoke Hoods, Fire Extinguishers, Slides and Slide Spares, Engine Fire Bottles, Fire Detection and Oxygen Bottles. We work closely with various OEMs at the forefront of aircraft safety systems including Zodiac Aerospace, Kidde Graviner (UTAS) and BE Aerospace.
In close co-operation with the OEM UTAS (formerly Rosemount), one of our core product offerings to the operator is our in-stock range of OAT Sensors, Pitot Probes, Smart Probes, TAT Sensors and Ice Detectors. This equipment is standard fit across much of the Airbus and Boeing narrow and wide body fleet in service today, and we currently support various operators throughout EMEA for their AOG and critical fleet requirements as these are generally ‘No-Go’ items. Whilst we primarily recommend the performance and warranty benefits of our Factory New stock, we also stock Serviceable material, offering you a complete solution.
Through our partnership with Conidia Bioscience, H&G have been selected as a distributor of their FUELSTAT® fuel testing range of products. FUELSTAT® resinae leads the field in the Airline sector. The most recent addition to our product range, FUELSTAT® resinae PLUS is growing rapidly. Both are endorsed with IATA recommendation and inclusion in the Boeing, Airbus, Embraer, BAE Systems, Fokker and Raytheon maintenance manuals.
Although not a flying aircraft part, H&G still provide support for test equipment used on the ramp and in the hangar to set up the aircraft for flight. Our inventory ranges from Pitot Static to NAV and ATC/DME Testing. We have existing relationships and stock inventory from Aeroflex, GE Sensing and also more recently ATEQ.
