SunWest is proud to own and operate its own shop, attached to the flight school. Our maintenance facility has grown over a period of more than 20 years to master a variety of maintenance capabilities. We are as comfortable with Stearmans and J-3s as we are with twin Cessnas. Because we have always maintained a sizable fleet of our own rental and charter aircraft, we understand well how to manage the maintenance process in a way that economically assures maximum dispatch reliability. We have a staff of mechanics and inspectors who collectively offer many decades of experience working on general aviation aircraft.
In 2017 we moved to a much larger facility on the San Luis Obispo Airport which allows us to retain a larger staff and enjoy more efficient operations. We are also planning expansion of our services to include helicopter and turboprop maintenance.
