Service Department, Radios and Autopilots

Butler Avionics, Inc. installs all major brands of equipment on the market today. Some of the first GPS units were installed right here in our shop. Our shop boasts of the finest custom panels you can find. Over the years we have been complimented by other shops many, many times on the appearance of our work behind the panel. Old and new equipment blend perfectly. Our team of install techs consists of four techs who have worked together in some cases more than 20 years. Each tech is capable of wiring all models coming their way. Often they work together on the same plane and other times they work alone. Mark, Keith, & Mike will be found everyday busy at work in the spacious hangar at New Century.
