Our founder, Harley Bennett, operated a flying club during the 1970s. He had several aircraft under his care, and avionics expenses were a large portion of his budget. In an effort to bring these costs under control, he began to look into used avionics as a potential solution. He was able to maintain his aircraft, while reducing his costs, and he realized that pilots everywhere could benefit from this approach. As the cliché says, necessity really is the mother of invention.
