  Before we get buried with the bad experiences, let me get a good one in.
Aurora Avionics, Aurora Airport, west of Chicago, IL.
I bought an airplane that was due a static system/altimeter check.
needed a floating appointment because it was October, and flyable wx
and time off from work had to be sorted out. It's an S1S Pitts that I
had JUST (nearly) learned to fly, so wind was a factor as well.
Finally got all the ducks in a row and Kermit and the crew did a good
job, reasonably priced (as quoted). He also had a hint on a radio 
problem that appears to be right on.

The shop was recommended by my instructor, Doug Partl, and his advice
on everything to do with the purchase, check-out and care/feeding of
Pitts aircraft has been A-1. If you need aerobatic or check out dual
in a Pitts, Doug is your CFI.
