Gardner Standard has announced the acquisition of Shadin, L.P. d.b.a Shadin Avionics (Shadin Avionics) from The Wright Group.
Based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Shadin Avionics maintains a rich history of designing, manufacturing, and providing support services for fuel flow systems, engine trend monitoring, altitude management systems, air data computers and other instrumentation for turbine, piston and rotor aircraft for the military, general and corporate aviation markets.
