Desert Rat Aviation, LLC is a premiere aircraft maintenance and restoration service provider to both modern and classic aircraft. Our shop is located at the Ak-Chin Regional Airport (A39) in Maricopa, Arizona.

With over 65 years of combined training and experience, there is no project too small or large for our highly dedicated staff. We pride ourselves in providing only the highest quality of workmanship for all your aircraft needs.

Though we provide aircraft service, maintenance, and repair; our real passion is rebuilding or reconditioning an award winning aircraft from a bare frame into a beautiful work of art. We build award winning quality aircrafts at competitive, honest rates.
