PIREP - Stark AvionicsNumerous individuals, I appreciate pireps from those of you with experience with shops you employ (whether positive or negative) and like to pass on my experience to the thought on others at the same time. After a so-so experience throughout a recent avionics install, I discovered myself looking for an alternate avenue for the installing of a whole new transponder for ADS-B compliance. I called two local shops first. The tariff of one was so high that I actually busted out laughing on the phone as though I were at a comedy bar. He was apparently significantly less amused as I. I was telling the story of my local quote into a friend in the airport and that he recommended that I call John Stark at Stark Avionics for the quote. In doing my research before calling John, I browsed Mooneyspace and BT for pireps around the shop. In doing so, I stumbled upon a completely terrible pirep on Stark Avionics. (Search in BT if you'd like you just read it). This pirep caused me serious concern about if they should call Stark to get a quote.
I posted a general query for tips on an avionics shop and received another recommendation for Stark from another MSer (Oldguy). He and that i spoke in reference to his knowledge of Stark i made a decision to give John a trip in line with the two recommendations I coming from trusted sources. I was open with John regarding my concerns relating to the negative pirep on MS it comes with I used to be gun shy based on the previous experience. As they always say, there's two sides to each story and John took his time and energy to explain his side in my experience at all like me certain he'll be willing to employ anybody else who would like to call him and need rest. Our conversation shifted from the pirep to pricing. John and I discussed different equipment options, what might are perfect for my needs/wants and also the flat fee installed price for each and every option. We ultimately chose to install the Stratus ESGi for ADS-B in/out. John quoted me a soft price, but was beforehand that the number could be slightly higher if your tray was riveted in (as numerous Mooneys are). I went to edinburgh airport that night, took pictures and confirmed that my trays were that come with screws and forwarded those pictures to John. John responded in an exceedingly timely manner and confirmed the flat fee price for your equipment and install in some recoverable format and that we scheduled the install date and pickup date. The plane was to be delivered the Sunday after Thanksgiving. John said although have everything ready by Tuesday, but I opted to schedule the pickup for Wednesday in the event there have been some snags along the way.
