Fairchild Controls Launches Online Store Containing Full Range of Aftermarket Parts

FREDERICK, MD--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2012) - Fairchild Controls, an EADS North America company, today announced the launch of a new online parts store, The site, which supports current and legacy product lines, contains aftermarket products for aircraft cooling systems, air drive units and air turbine motors.
