John and Johnny Stinson at AMS, Aviation Maintenance Specialists on field adjacent to terminal is an excellent maintenance op. Great customer support and wonderful people.
Rarely if ever have I met a company with the integrity, the commitment to service, and the responsiveness of John Stinson, his family and employees. An absolute pleasure to do business with.
AMS aircraft maintenance is without a doubt the best! Having flown both Aztec’s and Navajo’s including a P-Navajo for 25 years, I am very familiar with airplane maintenance issues. Johnny and John at AMS run the most accommodating, well equipped and informed maintenance facility you will find anywhere.
We regularly fly into F45 to visit family. Twice now, Aircraft Maintenance Specialists has provided on the spot, excellent maintenance to get us back up and in service. While there in mid July, our battery solenoid failed, and AMS got us back up and operating in just a few hours. John coordinated the new part, Roland fixed us up like new, and they even lent us one of their personal cars to get breakfast! Also, these folks are outstanding at helping legacy Cessna owners find parts in short supply! Keep up the great work, and we’ll be back soon!
It looks like you found the best shop on the field & area in my opinion owned and operated by the fantastic Stinson family. In early 2018 AMS completed extensive work on my bird since taking ownership in late 2017 (new engine, new prop, D-Shannon tip tanks and cooling kit, and many squawk issues) and I could not be happier. I also used the on-field avionics shop, Palm Beach Avionics, owned & operated by Stacey Jordan, to handle some panel upgrades when AMS completed their work.
While landing at KSUA on Thursday I noticed that the boost fuel pump on my right engine had quit. With my return trip only 2 business days away I quickly looked on the field for someone to take a look at the problem. No one was available, however they provided me with the contact information for John at AMS. While speaking with John, he understood my hesitation to fly to his base Palm Beach county without redundancy. John had his staff bundle up some tools and head to my aid. AMS overnighted the boost pump and worked on the plane on Friday as well as came in on Saturday to allow my scheduled Monday departure. I cannot say enough about the Professionalism, Courtesy, promptness, and exceptional service of AMS. I will use them for all of my maintenance needs while in Florida as well as recommend them to everyone I know.
Aircraft Maintenance Specialists (AMS) at the North County Airport has been my top choice for aircraft maintenance services for over 15 years. As an owner of multiple aircraft, both singles and twin, I have consistently been satisfied with the repair services provided by AMS from general maintenance, inspections, overhauls and oil changes. A key to AMS’s success is their trained mechanics who are personally familiar with my airplanes and their related mechanical issues that insure not only my safety and that of my passengers, but cost savings due to preventative actions before something fails or wears out. In addition, attention to customer needs and concerns sets AMS apart from other maintenance shops I have worked with. I highly recommend AMS for their aircraft maintenance expertise, timely and responsive service and fair pricing, both for parts and labor.
AMS has been caring for my plane for many years and I have never ever had a problem of any sort. I am always treated with the utmost courtesy, my plane receives the most excellent care, and my pocketbook is always treated fairly. I couldn’t ask for anything more.
For over 15 years the team at AMS have taken care of my airplanes. First my C-182Q and later my T210N. They have performed routine maintenance, annuals and major engine work some of which required extensive research and persistence. They have also arranged for and coordinated avionics work and painting. Their ability to locate cost effective parts and services has been outstanding.
Everyone in the AMS organization exhibits a friendly, customer oriented attitude and they get the job done. They keep promises and work very hard to enable my plane to fly safely.
