PIREP - Stark Avionics
Enter subtitle here
As many people, I appreciate pireps from individuals with knowledge of shops you use (positive or negative) and want to spread my experience for that deliberation over others at the same time. After a so-so experience after a recent avionics install, I found myself looking for an alternate avenue for the setting up a fresh transponder for ADS-B compliance. I called two local shops first. The price of one was high which i actually busted out laughing on the mobile phone just as if I were at a comedy bar. He was apparently much less amused while i. I was telling the storyline of my local quote to some friend in the airport and the man recommended i call John Stark at Stark Avionics to get a quote. In doing my due diligence ahead of calling John, I browsed Mooneyspace and BT for pireps about the shop. In the process, I ran across a truly terrible pirep on Stark Avionics. (Search in BT if you would like to see it). This pirep caused me serious concern about if they should call Stark for a quote.I posted an overall query for tips on an avionics shop and received another recommendation for Stark from another MSer (Oldguy). He and that i spoke in reference to his exposure to Stark i decided to give John an appointment depending on the two recommendations I caused by trusted sources. I was open with John regarding my concerns relating to the negative pirep on MS it comes with I had been gun shy in line with the previous experience. As they always say, there are 2 sides to each story and John took his time for it to explain his side if you ask me at all like me certain are experts in happy to employ other people who wishes to phone him and need rest. Our conversation shifted through the pirep to pricing. John i discussed different equipment options, what can be perfect for my needs/wants and the predetermined fee installed price for each option. We ultimately made a decision to install the Stratus ESGi for ADS-B in/out. John quoted me a soft price, but was beforehand that this number may be slightly higher if the tray was riveted in (as many Mooneys are). I went along to the airport that night, took pictures and confirmed that my trays were attached with screws and forwarded those pictures to John. John responded really timely manner and confirmed the one-time fee price to the equipment and install written and that we scheduled the install date and pickup date. The plane would have been to be delivered the Sunday after Thanksgiving. John said he'd have everything ready by Tuesday, however i opted to schedule the pickup for Wednesday in the event that there were some snags in the process.
