Top Paint Shops: KD Aviation / Reese and Dial Eastern

If you own an airplane long enough, sooner or later you’ll want to paint it. And sooner or later you’ll be confronted with the often confusing and frustrating process of picking a paint shop. Two shops that have consistently rated high in our reader surveys are Dial Eastern, and Reese Aircraft (KD Aviation) in Robbinsville, New Jersey. We’ve seen the work these two shops turn out and we agree that it’s a cut above average. Both shops deliver good work and on time, according to readers, something that’s to be highly valued in any maintenance work but especially in a paint job, something you’ll be stuck with for many years.
