Beaver Air Services and Equipment, Inc. opened in 2001 as a full time service and maintenance facility specializing in Beechcraft piston airplanes when we built our hangar home facility. We employ two full time mechanics that help provide exceptional customer service and maintenance. We owned a 1969 V35A Bonanza that we obtained many ratings and hours in. Our opinion is that these are the finest aircraft in their class ever to be produced. Beyond simply aircraft maintenance, we offer information, tools, recommendations, and tips on the proper selection, use, ownership, and maintenance of your Beechcraft airplane.
