Life is Nevada County is worth the sacrifices we make to live here, including the need to travel outside our little community for clients, work and other business. That burden has gotten much lighter for me since I started working with Alpine Aviation. Tedious drives to places like Monterey, San Luis Obispo and the Bay Area have been replaced with quick flights. No more Friday nights fighting traffic back from the Bay Area: it’s a short hop from Oakland or the Peninsula to Nevada County Airport just outside Grass Valley. I like the way Alpine and its pilots treat me and I love the time I gain to spend with family rather than behind the wheel.

I made it to Ogden on Friday night and Atlanta on Saturday night. The wind was pumping but smooth at 17,000ft. I was seeing 195-205 kts for a long time and made easily to Arkansas with an hour of fuel to spare.
I really appreciate the hard work and late hours you and your team put in to get me out of CA in time. Please pass along my thanks to all. The plane performed flawlessly….what a great experience!
Grass Valley looked like a great little town, I hope to get back there again sometime. If I do, I’ll be sure to stop by and see you again.
Lastly, if you ever want to use me as a reference for any of your clients, it will be my pleasure.
My engine is much smoother. I’m able to run LOP now, I couldn’t before the Electroair was installed. Before the Electroair I had Gordon install the tempest fine wire plugs and he also did a Gami test which Gami said they couldn’t improve upon what I was already getting. If I tried going lean of peak my engine felt like it was going to shake itself apart. I can now fly at 5500′ and if I don’t mind going slow say 118 kts indicated, I can lean my engine back to 7.8 gph. At 8000’+ I’m saving 1 gph with WOT at 2450 rpm. I never had issues starting the engine, but it definitely starts easier now.
