OEM Agreements
Van's Aircraft, Inc. has negotiated original equipment manufactures agreements (O.E.M.) with a few of our vendors. What this does is to make it possible for us to offer one time purchases for our RV builders at a reduced price over the normal list or even discounted prices typically advertised by the specific vendors. This is not to say that we will not sell to NON RV builders but only that we cannot offer the same low price to those people interested in our O.E.M. products. In most cases we are still able to offer the products for sale at very reasonable prices to the NON builder, simply call Van's and ask for a quote.

O.E.M. suppliers:
Advanced Control Systems, Inc.
Cleveland Wheel and Brake
Hartzell propeller
UPS Technologies
