I'm going to plug a local, growing company. 10 years ago I worked for Spencer Industries, Aircraft was a subsidiary.

As you work on your aircraft this Winter, getting them ready for the flying season, keep Spencer Aircraft in mind for all your supply needs. Long time company (founded in the 1940's) with an energetic new owner! Give them a try!

Wish there was a walk in airplane supply store near here. Gets frustrating to have to order everything you need.

Looks like a nice destination John. But no transponder etc, also no alternator. I think I remember a plane originally built with no engine driven electrical system could go under the floors of the 30 mile circle but have not checked the regs to see if that applies to newer planes such as mine. The wife and I used to enjoy Snohomish and the Corn feed flyin but then came mode c. We did get a transponder and encoder later on but then things were not the same with different owners at the restaurant. Will have to check the regs.

It's possible, Castleman, had a friend teaching in a J-5 up at Crest for a few years.

Will... as for the transponder. In Part 91.215

(5) All aircraft except any aircraft which was not originally certificated with an engine-driven electrical system or which has not subsequently been certified with such a system installed....

I use to fly my T-craft under the Philly TCA all the time... actually the airports I kept it at were underneath the 30nm veil. You don't even need to talk to them.

I thought that might be the case as I remember it from a long time ago. And things do change. Thanks for the info.

Does anyone know if the former President of this company retains any interest at all? Do any profits at all go to this person? A short google search will show why I am asking this.

Absolutely not, he is out of the picture completely.

If I were this company I would change my name. I feel terrible for the people associated with this.

I googled but seem to be missing the details. Company problems??
They are in my "bookmarks" but I have not used them as a vendor.

Sorry for the late response. I just saw this post. John Thanks for your support! Yes I purchased the company a year and a half ago. I am actually a commercial roofing contractor. I saw a need for customer service as this industry seems to be lacking (not by all, but by many). The Spencer name has over sixty years of history and I thought it would be a shame to change the name because of one individual. And no he does not own any of the business or share in any profits.

We have made many changes and have created quite the local attraction. We are just now starting to really advertise and attend national events (see our banner on this site :) ), so make sure to stop by and say hi. Our next event will be in Alaska May 4&5. Unfortunately I will not be there personally as we had already made plans to go to the SuperCross in Las Vegas (we are big fans of this sport as our son races Flat Track and some motor cross)

At any rate, We can use and appreciate all the help we can get. Please go online or call Steven in customer service, and let me know what we can do to improve. If there are products you would like us to carry let us know and we will do our best to become a distributor (it also helps if you ask manufactures at the various trade show if Spencer Aircraft is a supplier of your product. if they say no, then say why not and tell them we should be. Give them our contact info www.spenceraircraft.com :) ). Every little bit helps. Thanks again, and I hope I can bring value to this forum, and provide the customer service you deserve.

Thanks Everyone
