Valley Air Crafts: California’s Air Tractor ‘Go-To-Source’

Valley Air Crafts sells and supports the full line of Air Tractor aircraft from its facilities at Mefford Field Airport (TLR), just outside Tulare. At the company’s 8,000-square-foot hangar/maintenance and parts facility, five maintenance technicians and a full-time parts specialist provide the expert knowledge and responsive support that customers count on to keep flying and earning. 

Says owner and president, Mike Schoenau, “After more than 35 years helping California ag operators, fifteen as an Air Tractor dealer, we like to think we’ve earned a reputation as the go-to-source for aerial applicators and aerial firefighting operators around these parts. One call is all it takes to tap into our 80 years of combined experience in aircraft maintenance and the biggest Air Tractor parts inventory on the West Coast.”

Valley Air Crafts has an expansive inventory of OEM parts and aerial application products, including Transland, CP Products, Agrinautics, Kawak, GPS guidance systems, spreaders, Lane brakes and Pratt & Whitney Canada. Parts orders are fulfilled quickly with a computerized parts inventory and sourcing system. A full-time replacement parts specialist helps customers to find the right part and to get it whenever and wherever they need it. Because Valley Air Crafts is located in California, parts orders can be called-in and fulfilled after central and eastern time zone parts suppliers have closed. “Our Pacific time zone can really make a difference to customers who are in a bind and need replacement parts really quick,” says Schoenau.

“Over the decades we’ve been here, Valley Air Crafts customers have really come to rely on us for a high level of working knowledge, expertise and all-around professionalism. So whether it’s service, parts, or to purchase another Air Tractor, we are going to make sure that we meet or exceed expectations.”
