Three years ago, I purchased my first Beechcraft product. It's a 1965 "S" type V-tail and I couldn't be happier with it. I thought that I had bought a very well maintained airplane and it was. It went through a very complete pre-purchase inspection by a recognized Beech shop in California and had some squawks, but nothing of any great significance was pointed out.
This year, my third annual, I decided to have a new set of eyes look at it and based on reputation, took it to Finefield. I was told by others that they were expensive, but I'm a firm believer in "you get what you pay for". It turned out to be the most expensive annual I've ever had on any of the three airplanes I've owned. However, I feel that I now have an airplane that is not only safer, but it's faster and Jim and staff left nothing to chance. They found things that others had either overlooked, or neglected to correct. I feel that every dime spent was well worth it and highly recommend the Finefield organization to any airplane owner who wants a "perfect" airplane. Armand Bendersky
I've been trusting my V-Tail Bonanza to Jim for as long as I can remember - over 20 year at least.
From simple oil changes to 'impossible to find' oil leaks that no one else can find, Finefield aviation always puts my plane in tip top shape. I trust Jim with my plane, and my safety. I encourage everyone else to do the same...
I first met Jimmy and crew back in about 2008 when I got my first Beechcraft, a Sundowner. "Oscar" was thoroughly inspected and maintained by Jim as carefully as if his own family were flying it. When I updated to my current F33A Bonanza, Jimmy and son Justin went through it with a fine tooth comb and found things that other 'reputable' A&P mechanics missed. I have lunch weelily with a group of 20+ yr experienced pilots out of Chicago Executive Airport, and everyone that knows 'Finefield Aviation' has nothing but great things to say about them. - Henry Fiorentini
