What our customers are saying about Maxcraft Avionics
"Last February I limped into Pitt Meadows airport in my Piper Malibu with a failing attitude indicator and a porpoising autopilot. A friend on the field suggested that you might be able to help me out. In the end you could and you did, I'm very pleased with how it all worked out. You helped me think through the repair versus modernize options and costs and in the end I chose to modernize. We put in a new Garmin G500 glass panel and integrated it with my existing GNS530 GPS and KFC150 autopilot."
"The work was done pretty much on schedule, it was absolutely on budget even though I chose to rethink a couple of my choices once the work was already underway. I dropped by the shop often during the month that you had my ship and it was clear that Clarke and his team, especially Andy, Wade and Ben who did most of the work on C-GMDK were focused on doing the job right, making the installation look clean and in taking good care of my recently refurbished interior, thanks guys!"
"While we were putting all the new gear in I also had you troubleshoot my ADF and a couple of dim lights in my autopilot. Both now working perfectly, it was great to get these little things that had been bugging me for ages taken care of."
"A job this comprehensive doesn't go without a few snags or calibrations, if only because of all of the interfaces to existing equipment. Maxcraft's follow up support has been excellent. I know that I'm a fussy customer, I now know that Maxcraft are at least as fussy as me! Thank you for having a high bar of your own and for always being willing to meet mine. After 6 months of flying the new installation and a couple of shop visits for fine tuning and calibration I'm ready to pronounce my installation 'perfect'. The G500 is a joy to fly behind; it's deadly accurate and rock steady. The synthetic vision is a great source of confidence flying over the mountains and the interface to my autopilot works beautifully. In fact it's like I have a new autopilot: with the G500 commanding the KFC150, the autopilot flies the ship like it is on rails."
"While the G500 installation may be dialed in my panel is far from finished. As all aircraft owners know there is always one more upgrade and I am busy saving for the next one right now! Naturally it will be done at Maxcraft."
"I can't tell you how pleased I am to have found Maxcraft to look after my Malibu's avionics. Your price, workmanship, scheduling and attention to detail met every expectation of an admittedly fussy customer. I am happy to have you use this letter in any of your promotional material."

"I've owned NTI for more than 20 years and have tried to make incremental improvements every year. A couple of years ago, I started looking at a partial glass panel up-grade and discussed my options at length with Steve. It was soon obvious that between the Garmin 500 and the Aspen Pro, the Aspen was the only one that would be viable. Maxcraft installed it in May/June of last year and it's quite a step-up from the previous King KI-55 slaved HSI (that I thought was really great!). You also did the WAAS up-grade at the same time. A couple of months after it was installed, I had a total Aspen failure (i.e., it went black!) as I was returning from Portland; luckily I was in VFR conditions over an undercast and Pitt Meadows was clear. I contacted Steve or Daryl first thing Monday morning; you removed it immediately and I was back flying by that Friday. Great service!"
"I should also mention the fast service that you provided me on two other occasions last year, once when the VOR half of the Garmin 430 stopped working and the very quick diagnosis and replacement of my main comm antenna."
"The last major improvement to NTI took place this year when you took out the Century 1 autopilot and installed an S-tec 50 that is coupled to the Aspen, with the GPS steering. I can't tell you how happy I am with it; as my wife commented 'this is just like an airliner'. The combination of the two (Aspen + S-tec) has made a world of difference to the airplane and made my flying so much easier and more enjoyable. All the best to Daryl and his team."
"I sought three quotes for this panel upgrade project and Maxcraft was one of the companies. Maxcraft was recommended to me by Bill Neale, a fellow Comanche owner and former Pitt Meadows Airport Manager. When I sought quotes to undertake the panel upgrade project, and requested Maxcraft to submit to me their bid based on my preliminary design concept of the upgrade panel, my first impression was that because the quote was done professionally and in sufficient detail, even at this stage, that I thought to myself that I would like to deal with Maxcraft. I base this comment on my experience as a professional engineer and manager in the nuclear industry before I retired. I was involved in many contract negotiations."
"Throughout our preliminary and follow up meetings to firm up the details of the contract, my first impressions were reinforced by the well organized meetings with Steve Nunn and Clarke Paterson. As the work on the panel got underway, I noted that all the staff were friendly and accessible, even the President, Daryl MacIntosh. The lead technical person, Wade Ouellet, was a personable and easy to work with individual. The finished product is of excellent quality, was on budget, but a little behind planned schedule. However, based on my experiences, it was not a surprise to me for projects of this nature. It is the nature of the beast. Overall, it was a positive experience to work with Maxcraft staff and hope to continue to do after service follow-up work in the future."
"I would like to thank you and your staff for the avionic certification that was completed on my Cessna Skymaster
C-FDOL. I appreciate your quick response on such short notice under AOG circumstances.
I would like you to convey a special "thank you" to Mike Goluch for service above and beyond the call of duty. Mike spent a very long day working on my aircraft until the late hours of the Friday evening. Although Mike had found a few minor problems he continued to ensure everything was airworthy. Mike did not charge me for these items which I greatly appreciated.
I was surprised to be greeted by Mike the following Saturday morning when I arrived at the hangar at 7:30ish AM. Mike wanted to check a static line connection he wasn't sure about. It turns out it was secure. Mike also did another quick check of my systems.
I felt much better knowing that great care was being takin in my new aircraft and that I had one less thing to worry about crossing the mountains IFR for the first time on my way home to Toronto, Ontario. The avionics performed, as they should."
Thank you for the piece of mind.

"Maxcraft did an incredible job before, during and after installation of my new panel. They were on time on budget and were a pleasure to work with. They provide excellent customer support answering my questions promptly when I call them. I wish I could master the operation of this incredible equipment as quickly as they installed it. I recommend them without hesitancy or qualification."

We would like to extend our gratitude in respect to the support we received from the crew at Maxcraft on April 7, 2011. We called Clarke on the 6th at about 5:00pm in need of a days labour and some wiring for our bell 205. Clarke managed to free up Mike and Trevor who proceeded to complete the work required. Both Mike and Trevor were professional and efficient and liaising with Clarke is always a pleasure."
"It's great service like this that will keep us coming back.
Please forward the enclosed t-shirts to Mike and Trevor."
"On behalf of CHC Helicopters (Australia) Engineering I would to thank (and congratulate) all of your staff at Maxcraft Avionics Ltd who participated in the mods and re-wire of C-GIHY.In particular I would like to thank Mickey Singh for the courteous and professional way in which he conducted himself. He is a tremendous asset to Maxcraft Avionics, has a wealth of knowledge and his practical ability on this project was invaluable.
CHC also appreciate Maxcrafts understanding of our at times very busy Adelaide hangar facilities and the frustrations that crept in along the way due to delivery issues with critical parts to complete the task. At the end of the day we believe that an excellent product was jointly achieved by Maxcraft, CHC Global and CHC Helicopters (Australia).
We look forward to working with Maxcraft in the future and once again 'Thank-you all' for a great effort."
