I brought my Cessna 421C to Forge Flightworks for an avionics upgrade. I could not be more pleased with the service and professionalism I received. From the planning stage through the install everything was orchestrated. Weekly they kept me informed on the progress. Now I’m looking forward to having them freshen up my interior with new seat upholstery. I highly recommend Forge Flightworks for your aircraft needs. Thanks to everyone at Forge Flightworks.

Had the folks at Forge install a (Garmin) GFC500 (digital autopilot) in my Debonair. They finished it up without issue ahead of schedule and on budget. Can’t ask for more. Excellent communication the whole time.

I just wanted to send you an email just to thank you for all of your (annual inspection and repair) help on our airplane, I know in businesses like what we are all in – especially Keith and I both – we don’t get many kudos on work well done but I feel like the service you have given us over the past couple years are what customer service is all about.

I really appreciate you and your crew washing our airplane and taking a personal interest as US as a customer.

One other thing that I want to point out is that you almost always answer the phone and return phone calls promptly. In the new world of technology this is VERY rare and I greatly appreciate that.

I feel like this annual was performed with great care and professionalism.  Thanks again!!

I have really enjoyed working with Forge Flightworks.  Customer service is exceptional and it is clearly evident that Forge takes pride in their work.  I appreciated being informed during the entire process, with pictures, texts, and emails.  It’s also nice to see personnel working together as a team to get a great job done!

I unfortunately had one of my communications radios go down, and I decided to call Mike Harris at Forge Flight Works for a quote. 

Excellent decision!  Not only did they give me a very fair price – they also finished the job several days ahead of schedule.

Their customer service is superb. Their attention to detail did not go unnoticed.

I highly recommend Mike and the team over at FFW (KMQY location). Thanks for a great experience!

Professional and friendly service from the very start. Working with their sales person to see all the options and associated costs, who patiently explained, researched, and listened to all my questions. The work was performed as scheduled with no surprises. My experience the first time is the primary reason my plane is back in the shop with them doing a significant avionics upgrade right now!
