The Airworthiness Directive Toolbox is offered by Zook Aviation, a family owned and operated business. Our Founder, Reuben Zook, discovered his passion for aviation in the 1970's. To support his appetite for flying, he worked as line service and then served as parts room manager in the 1980’s. Reuben began working with computerized AD research in 1990, when there were very few alternatives to microfiche and paper. With experience on the ramp, parts room and in the cockpit, he finally found his niche in maintenance and compliance. Reuben has spent the past 30 years dedicating his work towards delivering an accurate and reliable regulatory library to IA's and Maintenance Technicians. April Zook (Reuben’s wife), launched her aviation career in 1998, now totaling 21 years of experience with the general aviation industry. As our Customer Service and Marketing Manager, her mission is to educate our customers on the features and functions of the AD Toolbox through the Zook Aviation Help Blog and social media. April Zook’s artistic and creative talents help transform Zook Aviation into a lively and colorful business. It's a reflection of who and what we are! As a small family business, we are dedicated to treating each and every customer with personal attention. When you call, you will be directly connected to a live person who truly cares about addressing your concerns. This philosophy has helped our business grow rapidly as shown by the map animation representing our customer base in the lower 48 states.

Aerobatic airplanes have come a long way, developing from the early pioneers over the necessities of military flying to the highly specialized airplanes we see at competitions and airshows today. General aviation airplanes have developed towards more speed, more comfort, more range, better avionics, improved safety. We asked ourselves: ‘Wouldn’t it be cool to combine the best of both worlds?’ and went to work. The result is the GB1 GameBird. Founded in 2013 by Steuart Walton and Philipp Steinbach, Game Composites started out with a rare combination of experience, skills, determination and the budget to see the project through. The 4 heads strong Game Composites design team around Philipp initially worked out of an office container at Wickenby Airfield in the UK. Operation in the new facility was started in October 2016, hiring and training production team members and over the course of the next 2 years, working through the Conformity Plan with the FAA MIDO. The first GB1 GameBird manufactured in the Bentonville facility had its maiden flight in November of 2018. It was the first type certified airplane ever produced in Arkansas. GB1 SN0001 received its FAA Standard Airworthiness Certificate in May 2019, shortly after the FAA Production Certificate was issued for Game Composites. In 6 focused years, a small team of dedicated people was able to translate an idea into a beautiful and capable aircraft that enables you to fly without compromise.

MD Helicopters, Inc., is a leading manufacturer of commercial, military, law enforcement and air-rescue helicopters. MD Helicopters, Inc. is building upon a tradition of excellence that is unmatched in the aerospace industry. Our high-performance helicopters have long been the products of choice for discriminating buyers. Our family of helicopters - the MD 500® series helicopters, MD 600N® helicopter and MD Explorer® helicopter - is synonymous with the world's best rotorcraft. We offer the best-quality, best-value helicopters in the world; provide state-of-the-art technology to enhance operator value; offer total support of our products wherever and whenever it's needed; and keep adapting our organization and the way we do business to make sure we continue to build upon that tradition of excellence and meet our customer’s high expectations for quality, service and support. MD Helicopters traces its roots back more than 50 years to when Hughes Tool Company, Aircraft Division first started to develop “light helicopters” in 1955. After years of successfully manufacturing such models as the Hughes 269, 300, 500 and 530F for civil use and TH-55 Osage, OH-6 Cayuse and highly successful AH 64-Apache, Hughes sold its helicopters business to McDonnell Douglas in 1984. For the most part, McDonnell Douglas stayed true to the original Hughes designs and nomenclatures. In 1997, McDonnell Douglas merged with Boeing to become the Boeing Company. In 1999, Boeing sold the former MD commercial helicopter lines to MD Helicopter Holdings Inc., an indirect subsidiary of the Dutch company, RDM Holding Inc. Included in the sale were the MD 500E and MD 530F single-engine helicopters with conventional tail rotors, the MD 520N and MD 600N single-engine helicopters with the Boeing exclusive NOTAR® no tail rotor system for anti-torque and directional control, and the MD Explorer series of twin-engine, eight-place helicopters. Boeing maintained the AH-64 line of helicopters, and rights to the NOTAR system. MD Helicopters Holdings Inc. was acquired in July, 2005 by Patriarch Partners, LLC, an investment fund. The company was recapitalized as an independent company, MD Helicopters, Inc. MD Helicopters is based in Mesa, Arizona and the current product line includes the MD 500E, MD 530F, MD 520N, MD 600N and the MD Explorer. MD Helicopters, Inc. has enjoyed a successful turn around going from as few as 7 helicopters manufactured in 2005 to 52 in 2008. In 2009-2010 the outlook for all helicopter manufacturers softened with the worldwide economy, but the company is confident of continued growth in 2011 and beyond. With more than 2500 aircraft currently in use around the world, MD Helicopters is a substantial company by any measure. Fleet users include the Korean Armed Forces, US Special Operations, Japanese Self Defense Forces, Jordanian Armed Forces, Turkish National Police, Houston Police, Columbus Police, CALSTAR, Argentina Armed Forces, the Italian government, the Finnish Armed Forces and many others. Internally the company is focused on internal process improvements, supply chain product flow, and fuselage ramp-up. There has been a significant emphasis on the sales of spares and the repair and overhaul business. Part sales are also showing a significant increase in orders per month. Through all the changes over the years, MD Helicopters has enjoyed an almost cult-like status with its customers and employees. It is viewed as a small private company with lots of heart and soul capable of delivering extremely good products. MD Helicopters are known for their speed, strength and ability to fly “hot and high.” MD Helicopters will renew its focus to differentiate itself from other Helicopter manufacturers while filling the needs of our operators, regardless of market segment. Our marketing goal is to position MD Helicopters as the “First Choice” manufacturer throughout the world. Looking at the helicopter marketplace and planning our place in industry growth for 2011 and beyond is a tremendous challenge with potential for tremendous opportunity. We can think of no better place to begin the journey than right where we are: “MD Helicopters, American Pride Rising to New Heights.”
Today, our team is made up of more than 700 passionate engineers, experts, and leaders, all focused on bringing our pioneering vision to life. We’re developing a world-class manufacturing facility in Marina, CA and have offices and workshops in Santa Cruz, San Carlos, Washington, D.C., and Munich, Germany. In the beginning, day and night, a small team of seven engineers worked out of “The Barn,” our workshop in the mountains above Santa Cruz. We explored the frontiers of technologies like electric motors, flight software, and lithium-ion batteries — engineering almost every component from the ground up. Beginning in 2012, Joby was selected to collaborate with NASA on several groundbreaking electric flight projects, including the X-57 and LEAPTech. After many years of subscale testing and analysis, we arrived at our current configuration and flew this subscale prototype for the first time. Our first full-scale prototype took to the skies in 2017. In 2019, our first production prototype began a rigorous flight testing program. In 2020, we agreed to a "G-1" certification basis for our aircraft with the FAA, laying a clear path to certifying our aircraft for commercial flights. The U.S. Air Force also granted its first ever eVTOL airworthiness approval to Joby as part of its Agility Prime program. With more than 1,000 test flights behind us, we're looking ahead to breaking ground on our first large-scale manufacturing facility later this year, certifying our aircraft in 2023, and starting commercial operations in 2024.
