TGH Aviation Celebrates 60 Year Anniversary

Auburn, CA, March 30th, 2017

 

TGH Aviation, one of the most trusted and respected Part 145 Repair Stations in the industry, this year celebrates its 60th anniversary. TGH Aviation takes pride in its humble beginnings and appreciates the loyalty and dedication of both customers and employees throughout the past six decades. The company will commemorate the occasion with a number of customer appreciation specials and anniversary promotions throughout the year.

In 1957 founder Emery “Claude” Oxley Senior set out with a vision to specialize in the repair of gyroscopes for General Aviation aircraft. Claude originally began working out of his home in Riverside, California before his son Emery moved the business to a small wooden building in Auburn, California and joined forces with Chief Engineer, Rich Anderson. The early years were critical to the long term success of The Gyro House, now known as TGH Aviation. The founders built a strong infrastructure for the future by developing the TGH Aviation reputation as a top quality aircraft instrument repair facility with superior customer service.

Over the course of the last 60 years, TGH Aviation has vastly expanded its capabilities beyond gyroscopes, evolving into a diverse aircraft instrument repair facility that has become known world-wide. TGH Aviation now offers over 20,000 service capabilities, including the repair of primary flight instruments, avionics, aural warning systems, fuel flow transmitters, and their related indicators and refueling sensors. Today TGH Aviation is a valued supplier to the United States Department of Defense, NATO and a world-wide network of aviation maintenance facilities and parts brokers while still maintaining its legacy customer base of General Aviation pilots.

TGH Aviation provides outright sales, exchange sales, avionic installations and upgrades, repair services, and holds distributorships for most of the major manufacturers of the aforementioned product lines. The company’s repair shop customer base spans all areas of the industry from general aviation, corporate aviation and commercial aviation. The customer base includes airlines, parts brokers and maintenance facilities on five continents.

The past 60 years have been a hugely successful time for TGH Aviation, which now consists of a fully operational repair station, fuel lab, online pilot supply store and an avionics hangar. A veteran-owned company, TGH Aviation employs forward-thinking, growth-oriented management and all employees work to build the company reputation while improving industry presence and stature. “I am fortunate to be part of the TGH family. Here at TGH Aviation we strive for excellence in all work performed, as well as, our customer relations. I look forward to seeing what the next 60 years bring” states Hilary Coury, Sales & Marketing Manager. The company is delighted to have become a part of the local community and to have had the pleasure of working with and meeting many people over the years and look forward to continuing to build on these strong relationships in the future.

TGH Aviation Awarded Military Contract for Support of the United States Air Force

TGH Aviation Awarded Military Contract for Support of the United States Air Force

Auburn, CA, December, 8th, 2015

 

T-38Talon

 

TGH Aviation, based out of the Auburn Airport in Auburn CA, is proud to announce it has been awarded a multi-million dollar five year contract by the U.S. Air Force for the purpose of overhauling all Fuel Flow Transmitters, 8TJ61 Series, for the T-38 Supersonic Jet Trainers. The T-38 is the primary training aircraft for the Air Force. More than 60,000 USAF pilots have trained in the T-38 since it entered service in 1961, when it was the world’s first supersonic trainer. USAF T-38 trainers are primarily used by the Air Education and Training Command for joint specialized undergraduate pilot training (JSUPT), but the aircraft are also used by the Air Combat Command for its companion training program and by the Air Force Materiel Command to test experimental equipment.

 

“The award of this contract extension is an affirmation by the Air Force of the extraordinary service and quality of workmanship provided by the employees of TGH Aviation,” said TGH President Richard Anderson regarding the recent contract award. For more than 56 years TGH Aviation, formerly The Gyro House, has been an industry leader in flight system support. The company exudes confidence in its ability to provide best-in-class repair, overhaul and new products for a wide range of aviation needs, with the fuel flow support being at the heart of them. TGH operates four full time Fuel Flow Transmitter calibration laboratories. All tools and test equipment utilized by TGH, for the “Return to Service” of Fuel Flow Transmitters, are calibrated, certified and traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). TGH uses only quality parts that are OEM or FAA approved in the completion of repair work on Fuel Flow Transmitters. The flowmeter operates on the principle that the rotation the fuel by the constant-speed inlet impeller tends to rotate the stationary outlet turbine in an amount which is proportional to the rate of fluid flow through the device measured in pounds per hour. A constant speed motor turns at 8,000 RPM, driving the inlet impeller at 206 RPM through a reduction gear. The inlet struts and inlet impeller combine to impart a clockwise rotation to the incoming fluid, which tends to turn the outlet turbine. The outlet turbine does not rotate through a complete revolution, but as the fuel passes from the inlet impeller with a clockwise spin, it causes the outlet turbine to deflect from its neutral position against the action of a spring. The angular deflection is directly proportional to the mass rate of fuel flow. The outlet turbine deflection is sensed by a synchro transmitter which is directly coupled to it, and provides a signal proportional to the rate of flow to an indicator.

 

TGH Aviation has a well-known reputation for their precision and innovation within the aviation industry. In addition to military aircraft repair, TGH also overhauls fuel flow transmitters for high performance aviation aircraft, corporate/commuter aircraft and large commercial aircraft.
