Where Experience Meets Innovation

AVI, an FCAH Aerospace brand, provides comprehensive, cost-saving solutions for survival products, inflatables, and accessories through our divisions, which include Aviation Inflatables, AVI-Survival Products, and AVI-Accessories. Our portfolio of services encompasses solutions that support commercial & regional airlines, government & military enterprises, helicopters, & general aviation.

Our History

The AVI Holding Company was established in 2016 by German and Angie Alvarez to support their diverse companies. Aviation Inflatables was formed in 2004, and by 2008, it was certified as an FAA 145 repair station for emergency equipment. By 2015, Aviation Inflatables received approval to become a PMA manufacturer for reservoirs. Along with the PMA approval, AVI developed DER Repairs for various escape slide inflatables.

In 2017, AVI acquired Survival Products, which had been engineering, manufacturing, and servicing life rafts since 1970. Survival Products is one of the world’s leading companies in the compact, lightweight, and affordable life rafts segment for the general and business aviation market. The acquisition of Survival Products,  expanded AVI’s capabilities into the commercial market, including the latest innovation with a TSO-C13g approved single cell life preserver and TSO-C70b approved 6 and 65-passenger reversible life raft.

AVI has been developing new and innovative DER, PMA, and OEM solutions for aerospace emergency equipment and accessories for over 54 years and is continuing to expand its capabilities for many years to come.
