Pilot-centred avionics advice & installations

With a groundwork in excellence laid by military training in New Zealand’s Air Force, Primary Avionics is proud to deliver quality Avionics solutions to the Hawke's Bay, greater East Coast and Bay of Plenty of New Zealand.

Making sure it looks good and does the job in the cockpit is only part of the equation as we believe that it's what’s behind the panel that is where the true art of avionics lies. Future proofing for ease of maintenance, eliminating potential issues from wear and tear through good practice and ensuring all remains “Smokefree” is paramount to the Primary Avionics philosophy.

Experience across a broad range of avionics products means Primary Avionics is well placed to discuss the options available to achieve exactly the result required. Whether a basic radio unit in an enthusiast’s aircraft, to systems used in agriculture and forestry, right through to a glass cockpit system in a medevac or other specialist aircraft. Our strength is being able to understand and communicate with customers as well as being flexible enough for Pilot-centred avionics advice & installations to provide custom solutions. Having direct access to technicians means nothing gets lost in translation and we’re able to move quickly for tight turnarounds or unexpected maintenance. 

Holding all electrical, instrument and radio ratings for up to a BE300, Director Adam (Sammy) is perfectly positioned at Hawke's Bay Airport to cater for these aircraft on the East Coast of the North Island and is happy to travel further afield if called upon.

Alongside avionics specific ratings, Sammy holds various airframe and engine ratings as well as Inspection Authorisation. This provides continuity of sign-off and eliminates the need for multiple licensed engineers on one job reducing scheduling delays and extra cost. 

Above all, Primary Avionics philosophy is centred on the pilot; It doesn’t matter what the avionics engineer reckons, at the end of the day the pilot needs to feel comfortable with their avionics. To that end, we spend as much time as possible discussing with the user what they need/want to make sure everyone is on the same page.
