    Question FlyTek for maintenance @ Lake Hood?

    Anyone use them for 180/185 work, and would recommend?

    Brian Leist. I understand the former maintenance director from Seaplanes North is also there.

    I can't offer an opinion as I have no experience with him. I can say that he is not on my never again list.

    I use them for my float changes and annuals. Haven't had any problems. Prices seem reasonable.

    Second hand opinion only but, interspersed with the routine comments about how much better a 185 is than a -12, a couple of 185-flying colleagues who have had quite a bit of work done there comment about the good work. The relevant work ranged from changeovers to annuals to annuals on steroids (i.e. major work done with the annual).

    My - 12 is faster than both of my colleague's 185's.....at the gas pump.
