MECHANIC needed in TX
Author Last Post
In Texas, Long’s Aircraft Repair in Coleman, Texas does outstanding work. Most 180/185 owners in my area use Randy. I highly recommend him.

I will be away from July 1 to 10 with no access to the Internet or Email or Voice Mail. Yes, I know, that's very cool. Chill out all. Take a break from being plugged in and go into the woods. Arnold Villeneuve

John,  I second the Efinger Aviation and Maintenance at Hicks.  He has been doing my 1984 C-185 annuals for 5 years also.  If you want it done right go to John.  I did my own annuals for the first 5 years I owned my airplane and took it to John for rigging and was so impressed I now pay him to do it instead of doing it myself!!

John,
My guy is a distance from the metro area, but Randy Long in Coleman, TX. owns a 180 and takes care of several of my friends 180/185's. Recomendations from friends is how how I found him. He actually converted his 180 from a 182, so he's definately been inside a skywagon. More importantly he's a good guy and user friendly.
His work number is: 325-625-5495

Any recommendations for a mechanic in Texas who is really experienced with Cessna 180/185s?  Dallas/ Ft.Worth area preferred. My mechanic moved to Colorado.

 
Sorry if you get this twice.  I tried a post a few minutes ago, but can't tell that it went anywhere.
 
Thanks,
