Aviation parts and hardware


Under new Management

Columbia Airmotive was originated in 1946 by R.M. (Bob) Sturges as a major supply source of Boeing B-17 Aircraft parts for post war operated aircraft of that type. As the demand for B-17 parts diminished, we diversified to accommodate a broader range of customer needs, stocking high quality aircraft hardware and related components

TacAero purchased Columbia Airmotive in April of 2017. And Operations have been moved to Ken Jernstedt Airfield in Hood River, OR . The company will continue to operate as Columbia Airmotive under TacAero
