Ontic has acquired the manufacturing and repair rights to four aircraft instruments from Flightline Electronics, continuing to build on its manufacture of OEM legacy products. Terms of the transaction, announced yesterday, were not disclosed.

The instrument manufacturing rights Ontic acquired from Flightline, a New York-based subsidiary of Ultra Electronics, included electromechanical and digital instruments used by various commercial and military aircraft. Ontic said it will manufacture the instruments at its North Carolina plant.

“We are very pleased to have completed this deal and look forward to fully transitioning the manufacture and repair capability over the coming weeks,” said Ontic v-p and chief commercial officer Gareth Blackbird. “This product line fits extremely well with our North Carolina facility and we look forward to providing long-term support and the supply of cockpit instruments to the extensive customer base.”

The acquisition adds to Ontic’s manufacture and servicing of more than 7,000 legacy aircraft parts that are licensed or were acquired from OEMs such as Honeywell, Collins Aerospace, Safran, Thales, and GE Aviation.
