A message from Larry:
“With every completion, I’m personally involved with each part of the decision-making process from working directly with the aircraft owner and designer, to the liaison of completion center personnel on both management and production levels, and with each individual vendor, supplier, and sub-contractor working on your very special project. We have a reputation of detail and commitment to uphold which I take very seriously with every aircraft completion we manage.”
