Default RV-3 Pre-buy A&P Recommendations near Weatherford, Oklahoma

Hello All,

I'm been trying to find an A&P to perform a pre-buy for me on a 1992 RV-3 but haven't been having any luck, the plane is in Weatherford, Oklahoma.

I've contacted the local EAA Chapters nearby and just reached out to another a little farther away.

If anyone has any recommendations on people I can reach out to, please let me know. I will cover the time for their services and happy to cover travel within a reasonable distance.

Thank you,

Default Pre buy...

Try either Randy Richmond (Richmond Aircraft service) or Walt Arnow (Exp. aircraft service) Both are advertisers on this site and both great guys.

Thank you, John! I hadn't come across Randy's ad yet, I will reach out to him.

Contacted Walt, he was unable to travel at this time understandably.

If you?re willing to use an A&P who?s not an ?RV? builder but knows RVs well I can recommend someone. He?s also a highly regarded EAA tech counselor and has built several experimental aircraft. He lives a little south of OKC so Weatherford is not a great distance for him to fly to from his grass strip. I?ve used him for several years on my annual condition inspection and he?s extremely professional and thorough.

PM me if you want his name and number. I?m not sure how he feels about doing prebuys but if he does yours it would be a good, thorough inspection. Good luck.
