Good To Have A Backup
Precise Flight, Inc.
announced Wednesday that it has entered into an agreement with The
Vacuum Source, LLC to manufacture and market the SVS-V Standby
Vacuum System. This new agreement will create an offsite facility
for manufacturing, customer service, order fulfillment and all
"This arrangement will allow Precise Flight to focus exclusively
on its core products: the Pulselite recognition system,
Nelson/PreciseFlow Oxygen systems, and of course, Precise Flight
SpeedBrakes. Our customers will be better served, as The Vacuum
Source will be focusing exclusively on the SVS-V and other vacuum
system related products," said Brad LeHuquet, President of Precise
The Standby Vacuum System for general aviation aircraft was born
when Precise Flight expanded upon its vacuum technology, first
developed in 1984 to provide sufficient vacuum to operate its
SpeedBrakes. The SVS offers low cost backup protection for the
vacuum-powered instruments pilots depend on. The company has sold
over 17,000 units worldwide.
Part of the continued
success of the vacuum system has been its position as the lowest
priced vacuum backup alternative on the market. The Vacuum Source
has recently launched its website, www.thevacsource.com
to provide technical information and access to product
documentation. The site will also provide customers a way to
purchase replacement parts and upgrade kits.
"While the SVS is easy to install and operate, some of them are
now more than 20 years old, which is why customer service and
product support are important to us," states Steve Crenshaw,
President of the Company.
As a member of the Precise Flight sales team for the past 4
years, Crenshaw knows the product. "The SVS-V provides assurance
that the vacuum can be maintained in most circumstances. The Vacuum
Source is excited about this new arrangement, and expects to
support additional products, educational materials and related IFR
flying articles as a primary source for the vacuum system market in
the months to come."
