Q: Here's $1000 bucks. Can you just sign off my plane?
A: No. I'm passionate about aviation and I take your safety and my reputation seriously. I refuse to put my signature on something that I haven't personally confirmed is safe and airworthy.
Unfortunately, there are mechanics that will sign off anything for the right price. I am not that mechanic. I don't do pencil whips.
Integrity is a key component of my business model and my life.
