Mobile, AL, United States, October 11, 2016 – Continental Motors Services (CMS), announced today that the American Bonanza Society (ABS) and CMS would jointly organize a Beechcraft Clinic on November 3 to November 6, 2016. The event will be held at the Continental Motors Services facility, KCQF, HL Sonny Callahan airport in Fairhope, AL.
The Bonanza/Debonair/Baron/Travel-Air Service Clinic Program was established in 1977. It was created to provide members of ABS an opportunity to have their airplanes inspected by the foremost experts in the aviation community. The objective is to detect any service problems that may be left over after a periodic inspection in a service shop, or to validate that the inspection report the airplane received from the shop was accurate and complete. The basic concept is to offer a comprehensive, highly structured initial visual inspection of the airplane.
The Service Clinic program is, in effect, a "second opinion" service conducted by recognized Beechcraft and Continental Motors experts. Service Clinics are scheduled from Thursday to Sunday in 1 hour, 30 minute increments.
“The American Bonanza Society and Continental Motors have partnered together for a long time to offer this service. We offer our assistance to the American Bonanza Society by providing our Continental engine and installation experts. Our experts complement the ABS airframe and system experts. By combining this expertise, ABS and Continental provide a unique service for Beechcraft owners that are members of ABS. For an owner, having his plane inspected by this team of expert inspectors is probably the best way to obtain peace of mind and to detect a possible problem early. Continental Motors Services is delighted to host this event in Fairhope, at our world headquarters location,” said Bill Stromberg, Vice President Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) Operations, Continental Motors Group. “ It will allow owners to have their aircraft inspected while having a better vision of the various services we offer. Not to mention the legendary southern hospitality that Fairhope is known for!” he added.
Continental Motors Services, a division of Continental Motors Group, is a full service MRO operation. It offers all maintenance services for Beechcraft, Cessna, Cirrus, Diamond, Mooney and many other airframes, but also repair, overhaul and inspection services for the major piston general aviation and PT6 engines.
