History

Edward 'Doc' BoothAn age old dilemma for manufacturers is the question, "If I make it, who will buy it?" On the other side of the coin a customer asks, "Who will give me what I need, when I need it?" For certain markets, demand can be fairly easy to predict. For the aviation industry this is not the case. Aircraft require expensive equipment in order to function properly. Buyers do not want to spend heavily on new parts they "potentially" need. Manufacturers do not want to invest a great deal in production and risk leaving their finished goods sitting unused in inventory. The result is long lead times between manufacturers and buyers.

 

Edward "Doc" Booth, a West Point graduate and Army Air Corps pilot was the original forerunner for Aviall. In 1932, he founded an aircraft sales and service company, located in Dallas, Texas. Another key individual, G.B. Van Dusen, was motivated by the gap in the aviation supply chain, and in the 1940s started Van Dusen Aircraft Supplies. In the beginning, Mr. Van Dusen would gather airplane parts and fly them to customers in an old Stinson aircraft. His business model placed an emphasis on fostering relationships and alleviating long lead times.

 

Both of their companies grew and throughout the 20th century several partnerships and mergers occurred. In 1981 Cooper Airmotive (Booth's company) merged with Aviation Power Supply to form Aviall. A few years later in 1986, Aviall purchased Van Dusen Air, Inc. These dynamic mergers and acquisitions resulted in several years of large scale growth. Boeing noticed Aviall's success and in 2006 they acquired the company. Today, we carry on our rich history of business and reach into new areas fueling growth and innovation.
