Just want to let you know how much I am enjoying my Garmin package. You did an outstanding job on the install and the price was below everywhere else I shopped and the fact that your so close to my home airport was another bonus. The GTN 750 is an awesome piece of equipment. It seemed overwhelming at first but it really is simple to use after I spent a little time with it. The ADS-B Traffic and weather are both displayed quite nicely on the 750.
Thanks again for a job well done.

I wanted to upgrade the Avionics in my 1979 Archer, before starting my IFR training, so I could train in the updated panel that I would be flying. After attending the free seminar put on by Premier Aviation and LaPorte Aviation on the Aspen, I decided that the Aspen Pro would be a great tool to add to my upgrade. With the professional installation done by Premier and LaPorte Aviation of the new EFIS system, 430W , Audio panel, Transponder and JPI engine Monitor , not to mention the new panel, she looks like a new plane. These guys did an outstanding job and my new panel is Awesome!

Premier Aviation upgraded the avionics stack in my 1969 Piper Arrow in late spring 2008. I had been trying to decide what I wanted to install and during one of my several phone conversations with Brian, he mentioned the new Aspen Avionics EFD 1000 Pro as an option as it would do several of the things I was thinking about and would save us several dollars as well. We had to put off getting the new avionics installed for a few weeks, because the EFD 1000 still had to be certified and shipped, but it has definitely been worth the wait.
We finally decided to add an S-Tec 50 autopilot, along with a Garmin 430 waas, to compliment the Aspen unit. We also had an Air Gismo dock installed in the dash for the Garmin 496 we already owned, and the wires run for an external antenna and for XM weather.
The transition from the steam gauges to the glass panel of the Aspen has been very smooth and has made IFR flying much less fatiguing and VFR flying a lot more enjoyable.
We took a long cross country trip this past weekend from central Indiana to the east central Florida coast. I would likely have never taken the trip without the avionics we are now enjoying. Everything worked flawlessly and we couldn’t be happier! We now have over 45 hours on the plane since the installation.
Thanks to Jason and Brian for putting up with all of my calls to answer numerous questions before and during the installation! I would highly recommend Premier Aviation to anyone who is considering any avionics work.
Thanks again for a great job!

"Premier Aviation has been performing all of my Aircraft needs for several years now. During that time they have provided me with the best service that I have seen in a long while. They will be my shop of choice for all of my needs! I have been very pleased with the interior work, Avionics and maintenance work performed to my aircraft."
"Over the summer, I have purchased both the Garmin GNS530 for my Piper Seneca and the new GPSMAP396 handheld GPS with the weather option. Used together, the 530 along with the GPSMAP396 dramatically increases the safety of IFR flying!
Premier will be my shop for all of my Avionics and Maintenance needs from now on.

There are no words that can describe how happy I am with the new avionics package. You and your team are awesome, no matter how many problems you ran in to with my old avionics, your attitude towards finishing this project was greatly appreciated. I will highly recommend your shop to all that I know in aviation.

I had my entire panel done at Premier Aviation in Elkhart, IN and couldn't be happier. In my Warrior, I had a Garmin 430, Garmin audio panel, Garmin GTX327 digital transponder with a new encoder and antenna, Garmin GI-106A, King KX-155 and KI-208 (that I supplied), and S-TEC system 30 ALT altitude hold. All of this was bought and installed for $20k. All work was top shelf and they had my plane in and out in 2 weeks.
A couple of years ago, I had an intercom installed by Premier (first time doing business with them) and Brian quoted me a price of XX dollars and about 2 days to do the install. He called me up right when he said he would, said that the plane is done and the total wound up being cheaper than the quote by almost $100 bucks! Now that's GOOD business treating your customers that way!
