“I wanted to take a moment and express my thanks for hosting the Bonanza Operator's Seminar and Fly-in at your facilities in Fairhope and Mobile. We had a great time and while the sessions were oriented towards owners as opposed to technicians, I can say that I walked away with more knowledge about your engines and products than I arrived with.
You did a fantastic job of presenting the material in a fashion such that was easy to comprehend and not too technical for the average pilot. You also have a great facility, friendly staff, and your products are absolutely great. We fly a Bonanza with your engine for AOG work; it hasn't given us any trouble at all. “
