As you know my experience with the purchase of my Saratoga from you had a few squawks that took some patience to sort out. Owning a business myself I certainly understand how difficult it can be to please some customers (like me ) but you remained true to your word and stood behind your product. Squawks are to be expected with airplanes but what made the difference was your integrity and that is becoming a very rare commodity these days.
Despite the few squawks it was refreshing to do business with you. You are a man of your word and I would not hesitate to purchase another plane from you in the future. In the end it’s a nice plane and a value that’s hard to beat.
Thanks for everything and a great Saratoga!
It was a pleasure working with you on our Saratoga. You truly went the extra mile to make sure that we ended up with a flying masterpiece. From late-night phone calls to almost-daily e-mails, you never made us feel like we were a bother. You provided helpful guidance on equipment selections but also let us make our own customization choices. We now have almost 50 hours on the airplane and we have loved every minute of it. We feel like we have a safe and reliable aircraft that we are willing to fly just about anywhere. We get many compliments on the quality of the workmanship and attention to detail.
Like many aircraft shoppers, we simply weren’t happy with what we found on the “regular” used market. With your help, we were able to get a custom like-new aircraft at a fraction of the cost of factory-new. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your services to anyone looking at a refurbishing project. I would be more than happy to speak to anyone about our experiences if they have any questions.
Matt did an amazing refurb job on my Turbo Saratoga SP – the custom paint, interior and the LoPresti Intercooler cowl are awesome. But the custom fabricated panel with over the top avionics and autopilot make it a true pilot’s plane. Thanks, Brian
I wanted to say thank you for another great experience with my airplane purchase. This is my 2nd purchase from you and I’d have a really hard time buying a plane from anyone else in the future. Your team does such an amazing job with the refurbishment process of these planes. You definitely have this figured out. Thanks again – I LOVE my new plane!!
I want to tell you about my experience with Matt Kozub and Aircraft Sales. I bought my first 1975 182P refurbished from him in 2007. Owned it for 7 years and put 640 hours on it. Never had any needed repairs and the annual was never over $1200. When my partner and I sold it got all of our money back except $7500. Went 5 months without an airplane and called Matt again. Refurbished 1975 182P. Had to wait about six weeks for him to finish it. I live in central Utah and for the second time picked it up in Ohio and flew home. I really looked around and feel great about the deal. The engine has a two year 500 hour warranty. Avionics are better and flies great. I have put 65 hours on this one with no problems. I really trust Matt and have had really good service.
I knew that when I was given the task of trying to find a low time, clean, air conditioned Cherokee Six that I would have difficulty. One I came across Matt and Aircraft Sales Inc., my search was over. The refurbishment process of a great low time airframe was seamless. In doing my due diligence, I visited the shop and was extremely impressed at the scale, organization, and efficiency of their operation. I knew that we were in good hands. Upon delivery, we received that confirmation. We now own, arguably, one of the nicest used Cherokee Six’s on the market.
Hi Matt –
Since I picked up my newly-refurbished ’83 PA-32R-301T in May, I’ve flown her 160 hours from coast to coast, north to south and 1,200 miles out into the Caribbean. The refurbishment process that you and your staff accomplished – especially the engine and interior – is simply outstanding, and while I’ve had a few issues which are to be expected with a nearly 30 year old airplane, I haven’t yet missed a scheduled flight, and the scope of work that you did to produce an outstanding Saratoga is apparent to everyone who works on her. It’s rare to have a deal like this done on a relatively informal basis, and I greatly appreciate the honesty and transparency with which you run your business. When and if I’m ready for an upgrade, be assured that you’ll be seeing me again.
Just wanted to send you a note and let you know I’m really enjoying the Dakota, its a great plane!! As you know, I struggled with the premium price you were asking, but now having a little experience with the cost of fixing/adding things to an aircraft….boy am I glad I didn’t buy one of the ‘cheaper’ planes I was looking at! Your pay now or pay later comment to me sure rings true.
Also, it was really nice I could still count on you returning phone calls and help after the sale was complete…thank you for that!
Anyway, if you ever get to Phoenix give me a call….drinks on me!
Thought you might like to know we’ve completed our trip, arrived South Florida Friday noon, No Squawks! The airplane preformed perfectly and Claus is in Love.
FYI the unusual tool that we found on board turns out to be a alternate power source connection used when proper external power connections are not available. This device allows you to plug in to the external power source receptacle on the aircraft and use jumper cables! Could be handy in the Islands. Also did some research and the intermittent alternator inop light is normal. The overvoltage relay trips whenever voltage exceeds 16.5 volts to protect sensitive electronics. The corrective action is just what you said, turn off the Alt. switch and back on again. This usually occurs when starting and RPMs rise rapidly causing a surge in voltage exceeding 16.5 before the regulator can step in and do it’s job. Switch it off and back on and your good to go! So what you said and did is correct and now we both know why!
Thanks for a Great Plane, hope to work with you again.
I was really impressed with your operation finding and polishing up a gem of a Bonanza A36. You are very knowledgeable and were accessible throughout the process to ensure I had all the information I needed. The plane is fantastic! I would say that I will plan on using ASI again for my next plane, but I don’t need a next plane. I have the beauty that will suit my needs for a lifetime. It is precisely what I wanted.
