Lee Air first opened for business in 1959 as an aircraft consulting
specialist by our founder, Mr. Bob Lee. After several successful years
Bob turned his attention to purchasing surplus material from OEM's
(Original Equipment Manufacturers) and the U.S. Government, which soon
became the future success of Lee Air. In 1966 Lee Air became
Incorporated, and in 1968 Lee Air proudly became an FAA 145 Repair
Station BJ4R078M, specializing in instrument and accessory repairs.
Today his legacy continues with his son, Pat Lee, our current
President, and his grandson, Ted Lee, our current Vice President. Lee
Air is now nationally and internationally recognized leader in
supplying quality aftermarket aviation parts. Our facility, located on
the Bob Hope Airport in Sun Valley, California, has expanded to six
