    l’m based at Reading PA (RDG). I have been using Reading Air but they are booked out 3 weeks and we’re not able to fit me in to service my 182s nose strut. So i’m Interested in finding another good shop. Is Millenium @ Reading good? Any other recommendations at nearby airports?

    Thanks,
    Nick

    I didn't think of Jay. He worked on one of my old planes years ago. Great work. His personal Comanche was meticulously maintained...an absolute beautiful airplane! Thanks, Nick

    Two possibilities, not too far away.

    Alan Wold at Quakertown (215 536 9463). One man band, so scheduling is sometimes an issue, good to work with, decent pricing.

    Phil Babb/Joe Flury at P-Factor, Pennridge (215 258 0777). Known Joe for lots of years, does good work and has a LOT of practical knowledge.
