"Voted on of the top ten avionics shops in the country"

I wanted to give you a very personal thank you for helping me with 71K! The installation and overall functionality of the new equipment is AMAZING. Everything was completed perfectly, right down to my little list of "would be nice" items. The paperwork, POH additions, logbook entry and even the invoice are all top notch professional.
I really enjoyed my flight with Bob and visiting with the techs afterward. The tech's intuition to move the transponder was thrilling. Bob's tips on the autopilot, how it works, and how to keep it operating close to perfect, were fabulous. I know I said thanks to them a million times, but please make sure they know how thankful I am that they treat my warrior just like a new jet. The craftsmanship of my redesigned panel is that which will be a joy to show off.
So thanks for everything. Thanks for hanging in there with me for 3+ years of quotes, emails, crazy tech questions, and all my nit-pick requests. Mayday ROCKS!
Equipment Installation:Installed a Garmin GNS 430W GPS/WAAS Navigation System as the #1 NAV/COM. The GNS 430W is located in the left avionics stack below the audio panel. It will display its NAV/GPS steering information on the pilot’s newly installed Garmin GI 106A CDI which is interfaced with the S-TEC System 30. The GNS 430W is also interfaced to the GTX 327 Transponder and the S-TEC GPSS Remote Interface Box.

It has been a breath of fresh air to deal with two companies who actually feel that some level of customer service and communication is part of the process. You probably feel that this is what you always aspire to, but take it from me that such an experience is almost unheard of in the UK.
Model:PA-46-350P JetProp Conversion
Equipment Installation:Installed a Garmin G500 Primary Flight Display (PFD) & Multi-function Display (MFD) System consists of: the GDU 620 PFD/MFD Unit; GRS 77 attitude, heading, and reference system (AHRS), GMU 44 Magnetometer, GDC 74A air data computer (ADC), GAD 43 Gyro Adaptor, and the GTP 59 outside air temperature (OAT) probe. The GDU 620 PFD and MFD are located in a side by side configuration in the pilot’s instrument panel in place of the existing primary instruments. The ADC, AHRS, and GAD 43 are located in the tail on an existing shelf. The G500 system receives its GPS or VHF NAV data from the Garmin GNS 530W & GNS 430W and is interfaced with the Bendix/King KFC 150 Autopilot. The directional/attitude information will be provided to the GDU 620 Display by the AHRS unit. The systems airspeed, altitude, vertical speed, and OAT data is derived from the GDC 74A air data computer. The GAD 43 provides analog attitude information to the existing KFC 150 Autopilot. The GAD 43 interfaces to the GDU 620 for configuration and alerting and with the GRS 77 for attitude and heading input information. The G500 System is also interfaced to the existing PMA 8000B Audio Panel, the SkyWatch 497 Traffic Advisory System, WX-500 Stormscope, Shadin Trend Monitor, KAS 297 Altitude Preselector, and the newly installed GTX 330D Transponder.

Your team was absolute craftsmen in every task from the removal of the old equipment and all of its wiring to designing, integrating and installing the new dual-every1hing Avidyne EX500 Multi Function Displays, Garmin 430W WAAS GPS, and Garmin GTX327 Transponders, and the Garmin GME Communication Panels.
I was especially impressed with a few people. In no particular order, please pass on my thanks to Michael for the care he took hand crafting the new instrument panels. Everything fit perfectly in a great layout! The same goes for Ed and Eric for the excellent job they did planning and integrating the components to maximize their capabilities and functionality. Of course, I'm probably neglecting others working behind the scene that deserve credit too - please share the glory.
We flew the test flight with complete confidence. Naturally, everything worked great. When the only squawks are side-tone volume adjustments, and what turned out to be 'pilot learning curve' items, you know it was done right. The next day, the plane was back in service (of course in more of your lovely mid-west IFR) with no problems. Oh, I almost forgot, thanks also for the outstanding after sales support. Specifically, your patient answers to the slew of questions I should have been able to find for myself in the product documentation.
From today on, Mayday Avionics is my Go-To Team for any avionics issues.
