About South Texas Aviation

I have vast experience in experimental aircraft building and would like to help you with your project to make it the fastest, cleanest plane possible.  I can help you build the whole plane right to a turn key aircraft and will  help you with your sub kits.  I can over see your build and you can save the money on not buying your own tools.  Current turn key build time without paint is about 12 months.  Give me a call.  I can do as little or as much as you would like.

Dedicated and experienced professional with 21 years aviation experience enhanced by 7 years of the highest quality workmanship custom building F 1 Rockets at Team Rocket in Taylor, Texas.  See finished aircraft in my photo gallery. I specialize in ground up aircraft restoration as well as an experimental aircraft builder and builder’s assistant.
