AIE, Inc. has been a leader in avionics, instruments, and electronics for repair and installation since 1984. In 2015, we moved into our new facility that offers a 23,000 square foot hangar located at the French Valley Airport in Murrieta, CA. This enables us to provide, but definitely not limited to, excellent service, repairs, custom instrument panels, wiring harnesses, engineering, custom designing and electrical retro-fit services that our customers are looking for.
In 1984, after years of working on aircraft and for other avionics companies, Kenneth Engelman decided to be his own boss and created AIE, Inc. as a home business located in Fresno California. Focusing on repairing avionics instruments and building wiring harnesses, his passion to create excellence in every product, gave him such a positive reputation that his clients started to ask more of him, which allowed Ken to relocate into a mobile facility at Rogers Helicopter in Clovis California. Ken’s business kept on growing, which permitted him to move into a hangar on Fresno Yosemite International Airport. Years later when the opportunity arrived, Ken made the decision to move AIE, Inc. from Fresno to Murrieta California at the French Valley Airport.
