“The biggest challenge we face is parts

availability,” says Middlebrook. “As a result of the economic downturn, many parts suppliers have closed their doors, leaving a void in the parts supply chain.” “The result is fewer suppliers for us to draw on,”

he continues. “This is why keeping our inventory is so important.” “Our decades of relationships does help us find

parts whenever they can be found,” Middlebrook says. “Having a long track record and knowing the right people helps.”

Staying the Course

Over the years, Penn Yan Aero has modernized, updated its equipment and expanded its facility to keep pace with technological change. But the central ethic of the company founded by Harold Middlebrook in 1945 has not changed. Then as now, Penn Yan Aero’s mission is to provide the best Lycoming and Continental engine solutions. “We want our customers to be so happy and

satisfied with their Penn Yan Aero experience, that they will recommend Penn Yan Aero to their family and friends,” says Middlebrook. “We take what we do very seriously. It’s all about safety and reliability and the joy of flying. We fly ourselves.” “My grandfather believed in the importance of what

he did; so did my father, and so do I,” he concludes. “That’s why Penn Yan Aero has stayed in business for 65 years, and why I expect we’ll be around for years to come.” Penn Yan Aero can be found on the Web at http:// pennyanaero.com. AM
