Timeless design and superior craftsmanship are just a few of the reasons why pilots have relied on Aerosonic Corporation for over fifty years to provide accurate, reliable flight data.
While the design and layout of aircraft cockpits has changed over the years, the dynamics of flight have not. Aerosonic instruments are capable of providing altitude, airspeed, rate of climb, cabin pressure, differential pressure, angle of attack, vertical speed and cabin rate of change powered only by the air in and around the aircraft.
Aerosonic offers customers a global network of products and services in North America, Europe and the Far East. By maintaining design, manufacturing, repair and warranty facilities in major and emerging markets, Aerosonic offers worldwide solutions. Our seamless network allows Aerosonic to provide high levels of continuity, quality and value.

Aerosonic has been serving the needs of the Aviation industry since 1953. At the core of the company’s products is the capability to measure pressure and convert it to useful information that enables safe aircraft operation. Over the years this expertise has become known as Air Data. Our experience and expertise in Air Data has been the core competency that has enabled us to develop products that meet the ever changing needs of our industry. Increased accuracy and reliability help us do our part to make aviation safer with each new generation of aircraft. From our first mechanical altimeter to multifunction probes to our latest standby display, air data is the heart of each product. Remaining relevant to new aircraft needs has been a key to our continuous operation for over 50 years
Our number one priority is our customers and the safety of the aircraft they manufacture. Throughout its history Aerosonic has remained committed to producing quality, reliable and affordable products that enhance the safety and efficiency of flight.
Today’s Aerosonic is comprised of over 150 highly talented and dedicated employees that share common goals and values that drive the growth of the company who are focused on continuously building a performance culture in support of our customers and stakeholders. We are a value driven team, seeking every day to add value through the delivery of custom engineered products, excellent customer service, ever improving operational performance, and the development of profitable new business.
Aerosonic has been in operation continuously since 1953. The company founder, Herbert J. Frank was a Metallurgist, Engineer, Inventor, Entrepreneur and Pilot. Mr. Frank passed away in 1995 but many of the products he created are still in production today. Starting as a small manufacturing company in Clearwater Florida, the operation has grown into a key supplier of precision aircraft products to all aspects of the military and civil aviation market. The company was founded on the insistence of high quality and the development of practical solutions to customer needs. These two simple principles continue to guide the company today.
In 1993 Aerosonic acquired Avionics Specialties Inc. from Teledyne Corporation. This acquisition added new customers, products, processes and talent to the organization. Our product line grew to include Angle of Attack Sensors, Stall Warning Systems and Integrated Multifunction Probes. With the move of the industry toward more digitally based products Aerosonic capitalized on the increased capability of the company to further develop the product offerings. A significant investment in engineering resulted in developing air data expertise that serves as a link between several products such as probes, displays and digital instruments.
Beyond today and into the future, Aerosonic’s strategic vision is to partner with customers to leverage unique strengths and capabilities to develop solutions that are both innovative and practical.
