Our History

From day one, upholding our customers’ trust has been our top priority. Cox Airparts was founded in 2009 by Rick Cox whose primary goal was to become one of the most dependable and highly regarded resources for the general aviation community. We started out in a small one-office building with three employees and have since moved to a larger setting with 15 employees, nearly half of which are family.

At Cox Airparts, we’re not just a family-owned company, we ARE a family. Over the years, we’ve learned that if we treat our employees like family, they take pride in what they do and put a little extra effort into their work. We put quality over everything, so having employees who are dedicated to producing quality products is of the utmost importance to us.
