Owner Assisted Maintenance
FAA rules allow the owner of an aircraft to perform maintenance on his/her plane as long and he/she is supervised by an appropriately rated mechanic. This provides you with a great opportunity as there is no finer way to learn how your plane works than to work on it yourself. Under the supervision of Jamie Shimer you will literally learn about the nuts and bolts of your plane which will improve knowledge and understanding of your aircraft.
Thinking of buying a pre-owned plane? A wise aircraft buyer hires an honest and experienced mechanic to perform a pre-buy inspection to search for damage, corrosion, airworthiness and safety directives that have not been complied with. Such an inspection often saves the potential buyer from making a costly mistake. With more than 20 years of experience, Jamie Shimer has worked on nearly every model of general aviation aircraft from Cessna 150s to V-Tailed Bonanzas and Piper Senecas. He has also worked on a variety of modern light sport aircraft, is Rotax trained and certified, and is well versed in the light sport maintenance regulatory system. There is no finer mechanic to hire for a pre-buy inspection.
