Airdyne Aerospace Inc. is a small, privately owned, highly focused aircraft special mission systems engineering, manufacturing and aerospace research firm. We have been in business for a little less than five years and were created in direct response to an industry need for responsive, specialized, design engineering services in support of roll on C-130 E/H/J special mission aircraft support systems. Our services also extend to other fixed and rotary wing roll on aircraft applications and backend mission operational support systems.
Airdyne Aerospace Inc. maintains offices and hangar facilities in the United States at the Hernando County Airport about 30 minutes North Of Tampa, Florida and in Canada at the Springbank Airport about 30 minutes West of Calgary, Alberta near the Rocky Mountain foothills. These facilities house Airdyne's personnel and primary engineering, manufacturing, test and demonstration equipment.
Airdyne Aerospace Inc. is a dynamic and rapidly growing small business headquartered in Folsom California with manufacturing and integration facilities in Spring Hill, Florida along with field offices in Washington DC, Iselin, New Jersey, and Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Airdyne R&D is the Canadian division of the company with manufacturing and Integration facilities located in Calgary, Alberta Canada. Airdyne facilities are MIL standard, and FAA/MOT civilian compliant aerospace manufacturing centers. Our facilities consist of a 7,000 SF integration and manufacturing facility in Spring Hill Florida, and a 5,000 SF facility in Calgary.
Airdyne is actively engaged in the design, engineering and manufacturing of innovative, leading edge, aerospace hardware of which many products have never been seen before in military aviation. Our current flagship technology is the Special Airborne Mission Installation and Response System also known as SABIR. SABIR provides a true roll-on C4ISR mission capability for a variety of manned and unmanned aircraft.
C-130's and like aircraft are employed around the globe for transport, humanitarian relief, search & rescue, border patrol, intelligence gathering, aerial refueling, spraying, firefighting and a plethora of other civilian and military missions. As the "roll on" legacy technologies which support these operations continue to age, so does the technical reservoir of seasoned engineering personnel who designed them. To facilitate the transition of these special airborne mission enablers (mounting, packaging, handling, control, and fluid/particulate dispersal systems) into the next century, Airdyne has elected to focus its core engineering talent on the development of innovative special mission aircraft products and services in support of this unique market niche. Airdyne also possesses indigenous expertise in the emerging technical areas of air deployed unmanned vehicle systems, advanced VTOL propulsion systems, and other search & rescue based products and systems associated with special mission aircraft operations.
Although Airdyne's premier product line (SABIR System) is a substantially fielded product (link to "Technologies" Page and to "SABIR" sub page) which is now realizing serial production orders, Airdyne's historical customer profile has been typified by various government based research, test and evaluation organizations which continue to fund and support our R & D programs. The aforementioned customers have provided Airdyne with leveraged (joint government & industry), singular (government grants & contracts) and private in-kind financial support for dual use ("6.2 through 6.5") RDT & E programs that exploited Airdyne's unique roll on systems and unmanned vehicle technologies. These agencies currently include, but are not limited to the following organizations;
- Department Of National Defense Canada (DND)
- U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM)
- U.S. Air National Guard (ANG)
- U.S. Marine Corp (USMC)
