Hi Gregg,

Conachenaircraft is basically a one man operation. Jim is usually pretty busy with producing his kits and custom building for others. He is a good guy and a good builder. You will have to check with him though to find out how soon he can get a plane out the door. He has a waiting list of customers and its pretty much first, come first serve. He can provide references if you like.

Best Regards
Carlos G

Hi Gregg
I have no experience with his kits but did order a cowl from him. His service was first rate, price was extremely low and the cowl is perfect. I would not hesitate to do business with him again. Hope this helps.

Gregg,

I'm flying Jim's 125" Beaver and can tell you his kits are of good quality and fairly priced. His Beaver is an amazing flying aircraft one that I really enjoy. You can check out pictures in my gallery. Email me if you need any other information. Unfortunately, you have to call Jim to get information as the internet providers in his area are not very reliable. If you call him, tell him I said hello. He is a very nice guy.

Sent an email to the new owners last night,

And was plesently greeted with a prompt reply this morning [sm=thumbup.gif]

It is reality, great news, the new owners son Tom informed me that they are working feverishly on the Goose, making some key improvements and updates. Their hopefull to have kits ready for sale very soon. Sounds great to me.
