Default Pre Buy needed 8A near Chattanooga (1A3)

I am looking at an 8a and need a pre buy. I will pay travel expenses if not in the area.
Thanks
Tim

Yep Vic is the man you want. But he is in Alaska now.
You can ask Vern Darly, also from the same field. Falcon Field.

Hi Tim, he's out for a couple weeks traveling, but I can assist you. Give me a call at the shop to discuss. We work together at Base Leg Aviation and I'm handling prebuys while he's out. PM sent

Yep, Nick let me go away without him for a while. He will help you. He's as good as I am anymore. The prebuy he just did on a 10 this week will make your head spin. It's amazing what is flying out there.
