Aero-TV: Tempest Aero Group -- The Other Aerospace Consortium

Tempest Aero Group Rides Out the COVID Storm

In 1984, Tim Henderson founded Aero Accessories, a general aviation component overhaul shop. The business focused initially on dry air pumps and mechanical fuel pumps, but steadily evolved into a manufacturer of OEM and PMA parts. In time, Aero Accessories’ specialties came to include numerous and diverse aircraft components, equipment, and systems.

In 2001, a chap called Stan Fletcher teamed with Henderson to create the Tempest Aero Group—a consortium of independent aviation brands recognized for its pneumatic, ignition, and filtration products. All told, Tempest Aero group currently comprises Tempest, a producer of general aviation ignition, filtration, and pneumatic products; Alcor, a designer and manufacturer of aircraft probes and sensors; Marvel-Schebler, a maker of fine aircraft carburetors; Precision Airmotive, a producer of aircraft fuel-injection systems; Consolidated Fuel Systems, an FAA repair station specializing in the overhauling of RG Lear Romec fuel-pumps and Continental fuel-injection systems; and Stratus Tool Technologies, a maker of oil-filter adapters.

While the aforementioned brands operate independently, each embodies Tempest Aero Group’s commitment to value, product quality, customer service, and innovation.

Tempest Aero Group’s manufacturing plants are located in Burlington, North Carolina; Arlington, Washington; and San Antonio, Texas. These three locations—by dint of multiple CNC lathes, 3&5-axis mills, Swiss/Acme screw machines, and high-degrees of human-supervised automation—facilitate continuous innovation and consistent output while maintaining the utmost standards of quality and workmanship.
The entirety of Tempest Aero Group’s affiliate companies have FAA Part 21 and Part 145-compliant quality-control measures in place. What’s more, the Burlington, Arlington, and San Antonio plants each house facilities authorized by the FAA to test and repair all Tempest Aero Group affiliate companies’ products.

Tempest Aero Group products are utilized by storied aircraft marques the likes of Beechcraft, Cessna, Cirrus, Continental Motors, Piper, Robinson Helicopters, and Superior Air Parts.
