Glasair Aviation USA, LLC. and Advanced Aero Components “AAC” announced the sale of product line assets for the Glasair II and III models.

According to Ian Baker, AAC CEO, the company plans to rejuvenate the product line – new kits will be available in an infused carbon fiber version creating a much lighter, stronger airframe while reducing build times. In addition, existing AAC modifications will be incorporated into the aircraft.


The Glasair II and III will be rebranded as the G2 and G3 sport aircraft under the AAC brand and AAC will provide customer support for existing Glasair II and III builders. Plans also include a web store for available Glasair parts.

Advanced Aero Components CEO Ian Baker announced that the customer support to more than 2,000 existing builders and owners will continue into the future for all existing Glasair II and III aircraft. The continued support will be stronger than ever with the soon to be introduced web store for all available Glasair parts.

The new kits will simply be known as the G2 and G3 series sport aircraft under the Advanced Aero Components brand. 

The company is continuing its development of the Firebird 500. Advanced Aero Components is based in Chino, California.
