I recently moved to Salt Lake City, UT from north Texas. Keep my C310R
hangared at Salt Lake City International. Looking for referral to a good
reliable maintenance shop in the area.
The aircraft is normally aspirated and is due an annual. I am due a BFR
and would like a good instructor to provide that and high DA/mountain
Also will need Oxygen. I don’t want to install an O2 system; just want a
good portable O2 system for up to 4 people. Looking at Aerox and
Mountain High Aviation Oxygen Systems. What would you recommend
Maintenance shop for annual
Good instructor for BFR and high DA instruction
Portable O2 system recommendations
Any suggestions for the above appreciated. Thanks from Joe BrightJuly 13, 2010 at 3:19 am #94272quote JBRIGHT:
Have you talked to Mike at Evanston Aviation? 307-789-2256 or 800-789-2256. Short flight here from KSLC. His Dad is an experienced AP/IA, CFII, ATP who’s got a lot of experience with Twin Cessna’s. He currently maintains mine, a 310R based in Jackson, WY, and several more in the Ft. Worth area. Mike also works with a good CFII who has 310 experience. Very reasonable shop rate. We’ll get ya back to KSLC.
Our density altitude hit 10,000′ this afternoon, typical for mid-summer 🙂August 14, 2010 at 4:11 am #94340
I did talk to Mike. I enjoyed visiting with him and the ops up there looked good but I just don’t like the 10,000 DA with few options in event of engine out. Looked around the Evanston Airport area. After looking at the various options in the SLC area decided to keep ops in the SLC area. I did find a mechanic – Jim Hoddenbach – based out of Bountiful. He is an AP/I and CFI. He was recommended by a retired Delta Pilot I met while wandering the GA area of SLC. Airplane is in annual now. Will give recommendation after i get the airplane back. So far Jim seems like a great mechanic.

Glad it’s working out, Joe. If I can help, let me know.August 18, 2010 at 2:08 pm #94358
Regarding the portable oxygen choice, I purchased a portable Aerox system at Oskosh two years ago. Having just moved to Nevada from CT this spring, I have had a chance to use it quite a bit in my 310J on trips to California. I can recommend Aerox 100%, high quality components, everything works well, and a fair price. I am usually flying just with my wife, so purchased the two place system. No regrets.

I can 2nd the Aerox system. I also purchased my system from OSH 2 yrs ago. It is the easiest system to use and I got upgraded to the bigger bottle for free. The folks at aerox are great to deal with. All of the components are super high quality.July 16, 2011 at 4:54 pm #94873
I am from Truckee and fly a T310R and have an installed system, however I did have an Aerox system in my 182 when I flew it and never had any problems…. When I ordered it it came promptly. It’s was easy to use and had quite an endurance as one person from a small bottle. Flying in the Rockies you will probably use yours much more than I do flying out of the Sierra’s… Good luck.
