About us

Horizon Aviation Services, Inc. (HAS) is an FAA Certified Repair Station, #HR9R499W, providing comprehensive maintenance and parts services to a wide range of aircraft. Located at the Chesapeake Regional Airport , HAS has been a certified Cessna dealer since 1998, with over 60 years of aviation maintenance experience among the combined staff.

"I have had two airplanes maintained by Horizon Aviation over the last seven years, with their maintenance department led by Chuck Buterbaugh during that entire time. While the PIC is ultimately responsible for the safety of flight, the person a pilot trusts with their maintenance is also extremely important. When it came time to purchase a second aircraft, it was nearly due for an engine replacement; even though it cost a few dollars more, I chose to have the aircraft ferried from Florida to have Chuck oversee the new engine installation. Why would I do that? Because I have learned that every time I fly, I trust my mechanic with my life, and I trust Chuck to ensure that my airplane will be mechanically safe every time I take to the skies." - Brian L.
