Rudder and Struts from Airframes, Inc. in Anchorage

Excellent, fast and courteous service. Beautiful parts, all PMA'd, rudder and rear struts powdercoated, and the crating was a work of art in and of itself. Rear struts are 4130, of course, and I reckon the rudder is too. I hung them up on the wall of the hangar so then can be admired pending installation.

While ordering from time to time, I would phone James at Airframes and say, "James, James here." He even invited me to come by and visit. And when I'm there, I will.

Looking at great welds is like reading world-class poetry -- pure pleasure!

Air freight was cheap too. All those cargo planes carry bellyfuls of supplies into Alaska and are looking for freight to bring back. Therefore, you get a bargain on the shipping cost.
I bought nice parts from Airframes inc. and the shipping to Indiana was no more from AK than somewhere in the lower 48.
I am getting ready to order some parts soon too. I used their online shopping cart and was pleasantly surprised on the shipping cost. I called them to ask if the online tool was correct in shipping cost and they assured me it was.
I was just there last week and spent about half an hour with James while he gave me the tour and answered every question I had. Great guy alright. The "factory" is something else too. Quite a few employees working like little bee s. I ll be spending a small fortune in the next year or two over there and would highly recommend it for your parts source.
