Why are McFarlane Parts Superior?

At McFarlane Aviation Products, 100% of our effort is focused on replacement parts. This focus allows McFarlane to produce higher quality parts with many enhancements, all at a lower price than the factory. Each new product we develop is analyzed by looking at decades of service history and maintenance problems. We consider improvements that could not be foreseen when the parts were originally designed. New manufacturing technology or high-tech materials that were not available when the parts were first designed, can now allow us to improve products while at the same time reducing the cost. This translates into a better product for less money. McFarlane products are engineered to be superior in quality, have a longer service life, and still be more affordable than the corresponding OEM aircraft parts.
