All of our Aircraft Annual inspection customers get priority service during the season, if your Aircraft needs a repair i try to resolve it as soon as possible. Often Inspections performed by others result in emergency road trips costing me time and you money. Our Objective is to have your Aircraft operate from one Annual to the next without any failures. A thorough annual Inspection is necessary to ensure the Safety of you and your passengers.
We have 42 years of accident free aircraft maintenance experience and a 24 year NBA business member accident free safety award. We will do what it takes to keep your aircraft safe.
A good annual inspection saves you money, by finding and correcting discrepancies before components fail. This prevents damage and wear to components leading to their failure, and downtime for you.
During the inspection we can complete sheet metal repairs, welding, fabric repairs, engine overhaul or servicing, electrical and hydraulic troubleshooting, Baffle repairs and hose replacement. Overheating can result from loose or leaking baffle seals and poor airflow, cracked or loose fuel and oil lines are a fire hazard.
Annual inspection flat rates are generally less than other shops, but we have found that repairing previously neglected maintenance increases the amount of money normally required on the first inspection.
