    Hello Guys,

    I need some repair work and explore options for upgrade in my C421.
    All shops in bayarea are very busy (not to say pricey), Can you recommend some reasonable Avionics shop out of bay area.

    I heard good things about velocity avionics in Modesto, but seems like they have closed business.

    appreciate the help.

    Thanks

    They squeezed me in quickly. So that was good. Work was professional. Invoice matched the quote.

    Executive Autopilots at SAC has a good rep and has done a bunch of 400 series Cessna panels.

    3rd that.

    A friend of mine had an ads-b transponder installed at Airtronics at KJAQ and was happy. They were able to squeeze him in faster than Executive Autopilots.

    I also have used Executive Autopilots. I was there last week for a Century AP problem. They were professional and fixed it.
