Ship It AOG (Booth No. 2848) has signed an agreement with Circle Seal Controls to be the exclusive distributor of the company’s line of business jet wheel pressure gauges and relief valves.

“Dramatic increases in the incidence of operators tankering fuel to lower operating costs have resulted in aircraft taking off with elevated operating weights, making the maintenance of correct tire pressures extremely important,” said Ship It AOG president George Miller III. “These gauges and relief valves are critical to monitoring and maintaining those levels and to the safe and reliable operation of those aircraft.”

Based in Addison, Texas, Ship It AOG is an international distributor of spare parts for the business aviation industry. Circle Seal Controls is a Circor Aerospace company located in Corona, Calif. It designs, develops and manufactures special fluidic control component systems.
