    • Cessna, Diamond, Mooney, Lycoming, Continental/Centurion and Austro authorized  service center
    • Beechcraft, Cirrus & Piper maintenance and repair facility
    • FAA Part 145 repair station
    • EASA certified maintenance facility

We serve customers from all over the United States and are one of the few maintenance and repair shops with a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification, meaning we can maintain and  repair European-registered aircraft that are flown in the US.

Our mission is clear:  to schedule you promptly, get your work done efficiently, communicate regularly, and get you back in the air safely. We’ll even pick up and deliver your aircraft if your schedule doesn’t permit you to bring it here yourself.


When you bring your airplane to Premier, you are entrusting the safety of your passengers and the integrity of your investment to one of the most highly-trained and experienced groups of  maintenance professionals in the country.  Our 11 A&P mechanics (four of whom are also FAA Inspectors), include military-trained mechanics and graduates of some of the nation’s top aviation  maintenance schools.

Our Expertise  



Why use Premier Aircraft Service?  In a word, for our people – their expertise, their years of experience, and their attitude.


Unlike most small maintenance shops, we send our mechanics to specialized factory training courses from aircraft and avionics manufacturers like Cessna, Diamond, Mooney, Piper, Austro, Continental/Centurion, Lycoming, Allison, Garmin,  King, AmSafe and Monroy. Our 11 mechanics have 150+ years of collective experience, meaning a lot of expertise and brainpower if your problem is complicated or difficult to diagnose. We constantly monitor our customer satisfaction through an anonymous customer satisfaction survey.  Ninety-eight percent of our customers will come back and recommend us to another pilot.

“Chris had a very high level of knowledge about the PA46. He gave me a lot of confidence that he knew what needed to be done in all cases.”


“I called Ray on his cell phone on a Saturday morning... he answered his phone even though I'm sure that it was his day off. I asked if I could bring my Mooney in on the following Monday for an annual and he said absolutely...needless to say I was a happy man! Thank you Ray!!!”


“Everybody there is so nice and easy to deal with. David Pomerance provided a very convenient service helping me get the plane to KFXE and even taught me a little something about the Ovation.”

I assure you I  would be critical if there was reason to be. You people are just very good at what you do.”
