This perfection obsession is usually quite conveniently satisfied because our airplane spends so much time close to home base in Tampa, Florida, near our longtime mechanic, Bill Turley, of Aircraft Engineering in Bartow, Florida. I’ve written about Bill and his shop before, but suffice it to say that I’ve entrusted him with my airplanes for 33 years in a row, and if that doesn’t say it all, I don’t know what will. Sure, I’ve called Bill from Chicago, Duluth and Monterey with questions, but almost always what I’ve been looking for and have received is reassurance. I ask and he tells me if I’ve interpreted the dials and indications correctly. Very infrequently, he will walk a local mechanic with little Cheyenne experience through a repair job by phone. I’ve never gotten a bill from Bill for this service.
