Aircraft Spruce


Metal Seagulls are proud to represent Aircraft Spruce in the UK, as we support aircraft builders and owners with a personal service and strong technical support.  This is the very basis upon which Aircraft Spruce has built its reputation since 1965, when Flo and Bob Irwin launched what we now know as Aircraft Spruce. Aircraft Spruce is a family owned and run business, sharing the same desire to serve pilots and engineers as your Metal Seagulls team.

When you speak with us about your needs, you are speaking with people who build, maintain and fly their own aircraft – and are brimming with passion for all things aviation.  We pride ourselves on our customer support, providing practical help and encouragement to our clients. Furthermore, we believe that our helpful staff and various support packages can help you with parts selection, adding even more to our dynamic style of promoting your aircraft build, maintenance and safe operations.

We offer a tailored service to meet your needs, and provide full support on all items sold.

We would love to hear from you what items you currently need or would like us to hold in stock, and also about ‘build packs’ for various aircraft/engine types, just give us a call on 07502 593 671 or send us a note or comment here CONTACT US
