About the Pilot's Guide to Avionics

Founded in 1957, the Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA) is an international trade association representing more than 1,300 aviation businesses, including repair stations specializing in maintenance, repair and installation of avionics and electronic systems in general aviation aircraft.

AEA membership also includes instrument facilities, manufacturers of avionics equipment, instrument manufacturers, airframe manufacturers, test equipment manufacturers, major distributors, DERs, air carriers, and educational institutions. As a member of the association, these companies have access to technical training, regulatory representation, and various member benefits and services designed exclusively for their businesses.

For the past eight years, the AEA has published the Pilot’s Guide to Avionics, a consumer’s directory containing educational articles and timely information about the avionics industry, its products and its people. The back portion of the Pilot's Guide is a directory of AEA members. Our aim in publishing this annual guide is to help pilots make better avionics buying decisions and to locate the repair stations certified by international regulatory authorities as capable of installing and maintaining these sophisticated pieces of equipment. Enjoy the Pilot’s Guide to Avionics!
