maintenance shops at or near UGN

Posted by Matthew Goren on Apr 13, 2018 4:40 pm

Hello folks,
I've used Waukegan Aviation for my C23 Sundowner for years.  It seems now they have become very understaffed and it is impossible to get in contact with them.  They don't answer the phone, seldom respond timely to email, and the last couple times I drove there (an hour each way for me) they were not even there.  This has me very frustrated.  Can anyone recommend an alternative for me for the future?

Hi Matthew,

I'm not sure where you live, but there is a great maintenance shop slightly less than an hour flight SE of Waukegan at Jasper County Airport (KRZL). They have experience with Baby Beech products and are a great group of honest guys. You can reach Excel Air Services at 219-866-5587, email Excel@ExcelAirServices.com, or web at http://www.excelairservices.com. You may also consider joining the Beech Aero Club, a type club for the baby Beech products (http://www.beechaeroclub.org). I was a member in the past and was surprised at the level of resources and support for the aircraft. Good luck to you.

I’ve had good luck at Poplar Grove Airmotive @ Poplar Grove Airport.

A little north of you in Kenosha are several shops. I’d recommend:
Carlos Rivera (also works out of UGN)~ 847-361-8501
Or
Aviation Plus ~ 262-656-1260

Hope this helps!
Tom

Finefeld is over @ 3CK. I doubt you'll find a more knowlegeble Beech centric shop in the area.
