Aerospace Products International (API), a wholly owned subsidiary of First Aviation Services, has instituted a new program to enhance spares availability for Beechcraft owners, operators and maintenance providers. API, which provides distribution and supply chain services to the aviation industry, has purchased an inventory of Beech legacy spare parts to support all Beech models including the King Air, Baron and Bonanza.

The Memphis, Tenn.-based company will provide 24/7 customer support to Beechcraft operators, with overnight shipping service through midnight Eastern time, positioning it to handle AOG orders.

In addition to its product supply services, API offers supply chain management and third-party logistics services and solutions, including forecasting and procurement services, inventory management, rotables management and product sales. The company also offers overhaul and repair services for brakes and starter/generators and builds custom hose assemblies.
