About EXXEL

EXXEL Avionics is a full service avionics shop and is home to a very special team of professionals. The company’s success is rooted in our fondness for aviation, personal satisfaction of accomplishment and dedication to customer service. The teamwork began at Brainard Field back in 1985, and although many changes have since taken place at the airport their vision has endured, culminating into what is now one of the finest avionics shops in the Northeast.

When you visit or telephone EXXEL Avionics, you will discover a laid back but professional atmosphere. The sales staff at EXXEL are experienced pilots who are committed to providing you with best service possible. Unlike many avionics and instrument facilities, we are not one of the countless mail order houses that are staffed with “order takers” asking you for numbers — a part number and your credit card number. Instead, we ask more important questions relevant to your aircraft. This ensures that you are making a buying decision that is appropriate for your type of flying, your aircraft, and equally important. – your budget!

EXXEL Avionics was entirely custom designed and built for versatility and expansion. One of the more impressionable features of EXXEL Avionics is the avionics testing station. Many of the avionics test panels marketed and in use today provide only limited testing. With this challenge before us, we designed the test bench from a technician’s viewpoint. Not only does EXXEL’s test station provide a higher degree of testing for a wide variety of equipment, but also each distinctive panel integrates with other test panels within the station to enable testing between various types of equipment for compatibility problems. Our highly trained technicians are able to quickly diagnose your avionics problems and have you flying again with less downtime!

The variety of aircraft being retrofitted at any given time at EXXEL is proof that the team attracts a special type of clientele. Obviously every aircraft retrofit is unique with particular attention directed to aesthetic detail during all phases of each project and In-flight safety considerations are always paramount throughout the retrofit process. Every aircraft we retrofit is genuinely custom with many prominently featured in various aviation publications, some have even won awards!

EXXEL Avionics has also earned a pioneering reputation for often times being the “first” in the industry to install new products. For example, in August of 2000, the company won Honeywell recognition for their installation of the then all new KFC225 digital Autopilot/Flight Control system in a factory new Malibu Mirage. Shortly before that we received BF Goodrich Avionics recognition for being the first shop to install the Skywatch Traffic Alert system into a factory new Cessna 182S Skylane. The ultimate reward was having our retrofit of a Garmin GNS430 system displayed on the cover of Flying Magazine; the worlds most widely read aviation magazine. Most recently we completed the first aftermaket installation of Garmin’s new GTS820 traffic system into a Beechcraft Baron.

Today’s avionics equipment are more complex with far more system interface capability than general aviation has ever previously experienced. This new generation of avionics equipment provides increased situational awareness, convenience, and safety. During each installation the safety of you and your passengers is our #1 priority! We will not compromise safety and quality for any reason. Simply stated, “We will absolutely NOT cut corners!” Each retrofit is truly custom with detail that you can plainly see and also that which is not always visible. You can be assured that our team will always give you 100% of their experience and talents with reasonable downtime and at a fair price.

Upon your arrival following a completed installation we will take the time to review all of your paperwork (Logbooks, Weight & Balance, Flight Manual Supplements, etc.) with you. We also describe all the manufacturer’s warranties for your new equipment, which we will submit for you. We will discuss equipment operation, related installation details and answer any questions you may have. After you are seated in your aircraft you will notice the obvious quality in the panel layout and details. However, it is only after you have left our facility and flown awhile with your new avionics that you will begin to appreciate their consistently reliable performance and at that time realize the true quality of our work.

Our reputation rests on your satisfaction.
We are committed to providing you with the best value for your money and stand behind our work with a HASSLE-FREE warranty.

We guarantee all of our installations to be totally free from defects in workmanship
for as long as you own your aircraft !
