I'm flying out to look at an Archer this weekend. If all goes well, I'd like to get a pre-buy inspection done on Saturday (2/18). Can anyone recommend a really good mechanic for the pre-buy, in or around Chino, CA (KCNO)? I'd prefer to use someone that comes highly recommended, rather than pick someone from an internet ad.

Please provide name, phone number and how you know this person to be good.

Thanks!

I use Gryphon Aircraft at French Valley (F70). Glen Kratz and his guys do all my maintenance and work on lots of PA28s and 32s. His work number is 951-698-4260. His email is [email protected] I am not sure about his availability.

Decided to pass on the plane. Corrosion. No need for a pre-buy. Thanks!

While you have passed on this aircraft, for the record there is an excellent IA in the area named Gary Brenner (949) 400.1842
There are others as well, but Gary Brenner has an aircraft based at Chino, is a skilled A&P/IA and I've watched him work and I can recommend him to anyone wanting a pre buy or an annual in SoCal.
I helped a 310 owner and had him employ Gary Brenner, and he did an annual as part of the pre buy so everyone did well. The autopilot was hunting up and down and Gary found the bridle cables was slack, and he tightened and tensioned cables and the result was perfect.
