Finding the right airframe is the most exciting, yet hardest part! We do the legwork, so you can sit back and enjoy the results. We don’t go out and buy the first plane we see. We conduct a thorough inspection, to see if it’s worthy of our time and your money. Our pre-buy includes an FAA search of all the records pertaining to the aircraft. We ensure there are no outstanding liens, no major repair 337’s and we track the chain of ownership to ensure the plane has always been based in the United States. Next, we inspect the log books to confirm that they’re original and complete since the day it was built. We then inspect the actual airframe. We look for corrosion. We inspect the skins for any hail damage. Then, the remainder of the airframe is inspected as if were an annual. If any AD’s are outstanding, or anything is found to be un-airworthy or marginal on its wear life, we will fix it or replace it. To ensure the highest quality, we ask that you the buyer have the plane inspected by a third party. If anything is found un-airworthy, or any equipment not working to manufacturer’s specifications– down to the last light bulb– we will fix it. No questions asked, at no charge to you.
*Customer satisfaction is something we take seriously. Our goal is to deliver a quality aircraft and to build a solid relationship with you. We are at your disposal, at any time, to answer your questions. Visit our testimonials page to see our customer endorsements.

Exterior: A very high end paint shop removed all necessary control surfaces, the inspection panels, the wing, elevator and rudder tips and wheel pants. All the exterior plastic or fiberglass was inspected. They replaced anything they could not restore to like new condition. Next, they stripped off the old paint down to the bare aluminum, including the door frames. Then they cleaned, prepped, and primed all surfaces. The final paint coat was applied in a dust-free environment, where they used the Sherwin Williams Jet-Glo process. The control surfaces were re-balanced and installed with new hardware. All other external hardware was replaced with stainless steel. All exterior rubber seals were replaced. New glass was installed and the windows were sealed to prevent leakage.. This classy paint job is in Matterhorn White with Flight Blue Base and Las Quick Silver stripes. This high end paint job still looks like NEW!!
Interior: A very high end interior shop removed the complete interior and examined it for corrosion. They cleaned and treated any that was found. They inspected all interior plastic, and made any repairs or replaced it with new materials. The window trim was dyed to match the interior of the aircraft. The headliner was replaced. The seatbelts were re-webbed and color coordinated to match the interior. They installed a new interior placard kit, and new carpeting throughout. They fashioned new side panels with new hardware to fit and look like they did from the factory. They performed a mechanical and structural inspection of the seat frames, and repaired them as necessary. Also they painted the seat frames to match the interior. They replaced the foam and the seat webbing so they’re conducive to lumbar and thigh support. They covered the seats in a high-grade leather. They installed new windlace cord on doors, along with all new door seals. We find that makes for a quite cabin. The color is a rich light grey, It’s a perfect compliment to the side panels and the cut-pile carpeting in beige. This fixed gear Saratoga features club seating. This high end interior still looks like NEW!!
Avionics: We removed all outdated avionics and excess wiring. Every flight and engine instrument was inspected for cosmetic and mechanical performance. If any instrument lenses were foggy, discolored, or not working properly, they were repaired. The autopilot is tested to perform to manufacturer’s specifications. If it didn’t meet these standards, it was fixed. All light bulbs were inspected and replaced if not working.
