Joe has done the the maintenance on our 407 for several years. He has done an excellent job keeping us flying and with the cost of owning helicopters, he understands the importance of keeping costs down. Excellent shop that I highly recommend.

Larry Cox

Flying law enforcement missions has its own unique hazards. Our aircraft have to be ready to go at moment’s notice and that’s the reason we only have Thoroughbred Aviation service our aircraft. We’ve had Joe Otte and his staff service our aircraft for over 10 years; you won’t find a better service center.

Thoroughbred Aviation Maintenance (previously RJ Corman) inspected and maintained our company helicopter from the time of purchase to the time of sale. In those eight and one-half years they were always honest, timely and forthright in dealings. They went the 'extra mile' by driving three hours one way to replace a faulty on/off start switch AOG. Now they have added a paint shop, and before the sale of the helicopter they did some great touch-up work. Very good shop and very nice folks.

As a police support unit for a major metropolitan city, operating one helicopter, Thoroughbred Aviation Maintenance keeps us flying and supporting the ground officers – making the city and officers safer! The folks at Thoroughbred Aviation Maintenance can turn a week long inspection, into a 3-day turn-around and get us back in the air! Having the support of Thoroughbred Aviation Maintenance keeps us flying, whether we call day or night, they can respond and get us going again!


Our experience with Joe's shop, Thoroughbred Aviation Maintenance, was excellent. The quality of work and attention to detail was superb. We had our Bell 206 Long Ranger painted along with new chin bubbles installed and several issues corrected that were discovered once the old paint was stripped off. We could not be happier with the end result. They were on budget and on time. I'm planning on Thoroughbred's painting of Jet Ranger later this winter. I highly recommend them to you. I don't think you will be disappointed. We certainly were not.

I had my Mooney M20J painted over the winter by the RJ Corman group at their facility. The job was customized to exacting specs and designed to my liking every step of the way. The aircraft was disassembled and re-assembled as required with new hardware, fairings, etc. and really gives the appearance of a new plane ... with a number of compliments from the hangar rats! The final color scheme and appearance was superior! I am very satisfied with their hard work!
