Eric Hinterleiter – Artic Air Helicopters
"I wanted to thank you for your continued support providing our company with quality paint and upholstery services. The attention to detail, quality and professionalism given to the three helicopters we’ve had painted is unmatched. Your enjoyable demeanor and efficient staff has made doing business over the years a pleasure. Our high visibility paint scheme has a function, to be seen in flight, you also made it look good on the ramp."
Paul Van Alstyne
"ArtCraft painted my airplane six years ago. I am extremely happy with the design and the quality of the paint. I was very impressed with the company’s management and the skill and dedication of their staff. The paint still looks like new, and I continue to receive compliments on the appearance of the airplane.
I would highly recommend this company to paint any size or type of aircraft, and to handle all mechanical requirements such as balancing the control surfaces. ArtCraft also has well trained IA’s on staff."
Gregg Weitzman- Santa Barbara County Sherriff Department
Bell UH 1H Helicopter
"I have known Teresa and the staff at ArtCraft for over 15 years. When it came time to paint my
1949 T-28, I contacted Teresa and asked her about my options for assisting with the dis-assembly of
the aircraft, as I wanted to make everything perfect. She allowed me to remove the accessories and
she arranged for a local A&P to do the balancing and reassembly of the critical flight components. "
Her crew was fantastic and the paint job turned out beautifully.
Some years after that, our Sherriff’s Department hired her to paint one of our large Bell UH 1H Helicopters. This airframe had years of military paint and coatings on it. During the process, her crew discovered some damaged areas that were hidden under the old paint. We were able to bring in experts to repair the damage and keep the aircraft airworthy. This paint also turned out beautifully! I would recommend Aircraft for any paint work!!!
David Hughes - Owner Skydive Santa Barbara LLC
"The staffs at ArtCraft were professional, and the estimated time of completion was accurate. The paint work was great and very affordable. I would for sure take my next Cessna Caravan or Cessna 206 there for a paint job. Thank you again for giving me an award winning paint job."
"I'm very pleased with the paint job I received from ArtCraft.
They were very helpful in selecting colors to match the paint job from an aircraft I found on the web. There was no design or layout charge and I was extremely happy with the result. Their price beat the competition by a mile, and included extra colors for less than I could have gotten just two colors. I would use them again anytime."
Charles G. Raines
"Thank you for the excellent job that you did on my Mooney 201. The colors you helped me select were exactly what I was looking for. And the layout that Marco was able to produce was absolutely perfect. I also appreciate the care and the attention to detail that Antonio provided. In fact, the attitude of everyone I met, and their desire to do quality work was very impressive."
