Professional maintenance management for owner-flown General Aviation aircraft.

Since we launched our flagship SavvyMx maintenance management service in 2008, we've managed the maintenance of thousands of owner-flown GA airplane and saved our clients millions of dollars in reduced maintenance costs—not to mention incalculable quantities of stress and hassle—by letting our veteran GA maintenance experts manage the maintenance of their aircraft.

For a modest annual fee—$750/year for piston singles, $1,000/year for piston twins—you can enjoy peace of mind whenever maintenance issues arise. And if you encounter a mechanical issue while on a trip, Savvy's breakdown assistance can be priceless!

Who What When Why Where How?

Expert maintenance consulting.

Our SavvyQA consulting service is a "lite" version of our flagship SavvyMx service for aircraft owners who prefer to manage their own maintenance, deal directly with shops and mechanics, and handle their own recordkeeping, but would still like access to impartial, trusted and experienced advice from Savvy's team of experienced A&P/IAs when they need it. SavvyQA clients receive unlimited consultation on matters like:

  • Recommendations of maintenance, overhaul, and specialty shops.
  • Technical second opinions of maintenance advice that would be costly or invasive.
  • Interpretation of technical findings such as borescope images, oil and filter analysis reports, etc.
  • Troubleshooting assistance for thorny or intermittent issues that your shop can't seem to diagnose.

The annual fee $375/year for piston singles and $500/year for piston twins.
