How It All Began +
Where We Are Now

AVI was founded by A.P. Barcus in 1948 to serve the aviation fluid systems industry. Since then, the company has provided components for almost every U.S. aerospace manufacturer as well as many international companies.

Originally founded to provide mechanical components, today AVI provides a complete line of aircraft valves for fuel, oil, hydraulic, and air applications.  With literally thousands of valves in the product portfolio, AVI can supply a product for your needs.  If not, AVI’s engineering group can design new valves to your specifications.
