Chuck Reynolds, A&P/I.A.
Chuck takes on the role of shop manager as he returns after a tour of duty running an LSA factory in CZ. Chuck was technician with Boerne Stage Aero
Service before his departure for Europe, and we sure are glad to see him back. His is a lifetime of
experience on aircraft airframes, piston & turbine engines, and accessories.
Project in the background
is an annual inspection for the Seneca III which included replacement of
the nose gear retraction assembly and modification of the engine cowlings
with the Lopresti Speed Merchants "howl
cowls". Brannock obviously enjoys cleaning the injector
nozzles. He was a Navy man serving on submarines and prior to his
move to Boerne was shop manager for the Geronimo Conversions company.
He’s a mainstay now at Aero Service with 16 years on the field.
Engine overhauls, airframe mods & enhancements, pressure vessels and turbine
inspections are part of our total experience. Michelle will take your call and handle your service order or put you in direct contact with the technician in charge, whichever gets your questions answered and info to you quickly and with minimum hassle.

SHOP RATES & SERVICE POLICY
$60.00 per hour
Boerne Stage Aero Service is a
value conscious shop. As pilots and owner operators, we understand the cost
issues of unscheduled maintenance, and the safety implications of
unscheduled events. This shop will always strive to keep you informed so
you can make wise choices on items that need attention now and when
deferred maintenance is acceptable, always keeping in accordance with the
Federal Aviation Regulations. We strive to keep surprises at a minimum, and
to keep you informed of your aircraft's overall condition from each oil
change, to each 100 hour inspection and through each annual inspection.
Preventive maintenance is the key to long term economical operation and
component parts reaching their life expectancy. Boerne Stage Aero Service
will always have your best interests in mind, and your operating budget.
This is real value that puts safety first, yields quality work and promotes
integrity of the process.
Our goal is to be as value
conscious as you are in pricing services beyond labor. We desire to meet or
beat advertised prices from discount vendors, keeping in mind that freight
from out of state is usually the only difference in our parts price versus
theirs. Overnight freight items or items that we must pay more for in order
to meet an emergency deadline might not always be the best price available
when it is a special order; but if getting you back in the air today is
what matters most, then that slightly higher price from the “not the
cheapest” vendor is acceptable to us, and hopefully to you. Boerne
Stage Aero Service keeps in stock the most common items required at 25, 50
or 100 hour intervals including some engine components, and many other
items like gaskets, belts and baffles.
felt, fluids, lubricants other than oil, aviation grade greases and other
items in this catch-all category will not be itemized on your invoice.
Instead, a flat rate of $20.00 noted as "shop supply" will appear
on service invoices typically including 100 hours, annual inspections, or
other repairs where these type supplies are consumed.
ANNUAL INSPECTIONS and AIRCRAFT
We do flat rate annual
inspections and are happy to quote directly your make & model.
Engine overhauls, PowerFlo Exhausts, Laminar Flow
mods, engine instrument upgrades [digital and
analogue] including Electronics Intl and JPI, and many airframe speed
enhancements are part of our complete service program. Please remember our
value oriented approach when considering a major alteration or improvement
to your aircraft.
