To Whom It May Concern:

I recently purchased a used Diamond DA-20 through Premier Aircraft Sales. I had the pleasure of working with John Armstrong and Patrick Crisp. Both Gentlemen were instrumental in making the Aircraft purchase and financing go smoothly and on schedule.

It was through them I was able to take a demo flight in a similar model to help base my purchasing decision. The Demo flight was scheduled in a timely manner and was a huge help in my decision.

Upon my arrival to do the final inspection of the aircraft John flew up to the location and helped me go through my final inspection as well as go through his own inspection of the aircraft. Any and all squawks were taken care of in a timely manner and I was able to stay on schedule returning with the aircraft. John also took the time to visit over lunch after we went through all the checklists and the final paperwork.

With John’s and Patrick’s help I was able to make a good buying decision even though the aircraft was over a thousand miles away. They never misrepresented the aircraft and the condition of the aircraft was at or above my expectations when I arrived onsite.

When I had my DA-40 down in Florida for the winter I was running into some problems with the auto pilot on the G1000 disengaging. I was reluctant to fly it back to VA without getting it looked at, so at your recommendation, I contacted your team down at Premiere Aircraft in Ft. Lauderdale to see about getting it fixed.

While I was back here in VA, they picked up my plane in Ft. Pierce, ferried it down to Ft. Lauderdale Executive Airport, and took care of everything. I cannot say enough about the courtesy and professionalism in the way they treated both me and my plane. The entire Premier team was terrific.

I would highly recommend their shop to anyone considering service for their Diamond, and if there is any way I can make it work with my schedule, I’ll be flying my plane down there in Sept. for its annual.

Thanks John,
