Airframes Alaska specializes in welded assemblies for PA-18 style aircraft including STC and FAA/PMA replacement parts for certified PA-18 aircraft as well as assemblies for use in the experimental marketplace. We are well known for our Ultimate Alaskan PA-18 Bush Fuselage, wide-body PA-18 replacement airframe, and for our “super duty” landing gear assemblies.
In 2014 Airframes Alaska purchased Alaskan Bushwheels and moved the business from Oregon back to Alaska. The brand is truly Alaskan again -- we now hand build, machine, and/or assemble every item in the Alaskan Bushwheel family of products locally. This includes Baby Bushwheel tailwheels, ABI wheel and brake assemblies, and your Alaskan Bushwheels. More than any other aviation improvement, our hand-built Bushwheels have expanded the safe operating envelope of bush planes worldwide.
Engineering | Research & Development
Airframes Alaska maintains a talented engineering team who develop and test new products as well as manage improvement timelines for all parts currently in production. Our engineers and fabricators utilize Solid Works, 3D printing technologies, and CNC machining to craft high quality parts for our customers. They also occasionally disappear for a few hours at a time on "test flights" when the weather's nice.
Airframes Alaska proudly supports the bush flying community in Alaska and throughout the world. Our mission is to provide strong and safe products to bush pilots or aspiring bush pilots who push the edge of their aircraft while providing vital access to remote villages and outposts and supporting hunters, researchers, archaeologists, prospectors, paleontologists, and fellow backcountry adventurers. Simply put, we make the best parts for the best pilots.
