ABS Discontinues Center of Excellence Program
Over the past five years, we have diligently worked to make aviation practical, accessible, and most importantly, safe for all of our customers. Our team is not only a reliable resource for aviation maintenance, but proudly operates a center that provides superior service.
Since 2017, our facility has been an American Bonanza Society (ABS) Center of Excellence — a full-time fixed base recognition that meets society-set standards for mechanic training, shop equipment, manuals and documents necessary to inspect and maintain Beechcraft aircraft, including Barons, Bonanzas, Debonairs and Travel Airs.
Although the ABS has discontinued its Center of Excellence classifications for aviation maintenance facilities, we will continue to uphold all standards, qualifications and components set by the Society.
Among those qualifications and standards, our facility:
- Employs at least one full-time Aircraft Maintenance Technician (AMT) who have graduated from the ABS Maintenance Academy.
- Maintains a list of local Certificated Flight Instructors (CFIs) accredited as instructors in ABS’ Beechcraft Pilot Proficiency Program.
- Ensures the facility is staffed with personnel who have superior Bonanza-Baron knowledge and experience and provide reliable, high-quality service to a substantial Bonanza-Baron customer-base.
Moving forward, we will continue to strive for and accomplish the best in aircraft care with quality workmanship, despite the discontinuation of the ABS Centers of Excellence.
Double M is dedicated to offering reliable work backed by a guarantee of maintaining your aircraft to the highest standards. There’s no replacement for experience, and when it comes to Beechcraft maintenance, we have the necessary experience to ensure your aircraft is in the best hands.
Any aviation repair and maintenance facility should have a certain set of criteria on which they base their work.
Among our services and benefits, we offer:
- A facility located in a safe, general aviation-friendly airport.
- An active continuing education and training program for our technicians.
- A significant vendor list for aircraft parts, accessory overhaul, paint, avionics, and others.
- One or more highly-rated and qualified pilots on staff to perform pre- and post-maintenance test flights.
- Necessary shop equipment and tools as defined in an American Bonanza Society minimum equipment list.
In addition to inspecting and maintaining Barons and Bonanzas, our technicians perform 50-hour, 100-hour, progressive and annual inspections on many types of single and multi-engine general aviation aircraft. Those include piston and turbine-engine aircraft (Beechcraft, Cessna, Piper, Mooney and many others).
