About John

John Efinger has been an A&P/IA since mid-1990's. His aviation exposure started back in 1976 during four years of military service in the USMC. This included specialized training as an Airframe & Structural repair mechanic, Non-Destructive Inspection Technician, Corrosion Control, Paint & Refinish Schools in NAS Millington, TN, and USMC Airbase, Beaufort, SC.


After initial training at NAS Millington, he was assigned to Cherry Point, NC Airbase AV8-A Harrier Program as an Airframe Mechanic. This led to a permanent assignment in VMA-542 and later on High-Level Maintenance Operations at HMS-32 until completion of his four-year enlistment in 1980.


After military service, John worked for several Aerospace Companies including Boeing Services (Columbia Space Shuttle Support), Sikorsky Helicopter (A76), General Dynamics (F-16 Assembly Program) and Bell Helicopter serving several functions for the next 15 years working at BHTI.  His roles included all Inspection areas of Airframe Structure Assembly through Flight Test, One-Time Experimental Product Installations, Various Positions in Q/A, Experimental Aircraft Certification, Various Modification Programs, and Repair Station Operations. John also served as a liaison between Bell Helicopter Canada and Ft. Worth Production Operations for Corrective Action & Problem Solving as it relates to Manufacturing and Final Production & Flight Line Operations.


In 2003 he decided to leave the corporate production aviation environment and focus on general aviation maintenance on his own. As a private pilot and owner of several S/E Cessna aircraft, working part-time for a few years led to an overwhelming response from other general aviation owners requesting help and expertise on their personal Aircraft. Efinger Aviation & Maintenance has become a full-time business specializing in Single-Engine Cessna Aircraft Service & Maintenance ever since.
