About Us

Eaton Aviation Co. was founded in 1990 to fill a growing void in the aircraft restoration market. Today we are New York's number one aircraft restoration company, serving clients in all 50 states. Eaton Aviation Co. specializes in restoration and maintenance of small aircrafts to private owners.

Ron Jones, owner of Eaton Aviation Co. has over 23,000 logged hours of flying time in 64 years of flying.  His expertise in aircraft restoration and services are second to none.   Well known for his award winning restorations in the popular Beech, Cessna and Piper aircraft.  Since retiring from a flying career Ron has aquired all the necessary certificates and earned the support of the Albany, NY FSDO.  This combination has eased the difficulties of paper work and authorization required to complete modifications and repairs.

Dave Fancett joined Eaton Aviation Co. as a sub-contractor working in the recovering and painting area.  Dave recently restored his own 1957 PA-22 which was awarded "Grand Champion"  at Sentimental Journey 2006, and "Grand Champion" in the Contemporary category at AirVenture 2006 held in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Dave also recently completed the restoration of a 1950 PA-20 that was awarded best PA-20 at Sentimental Journey in 2004, Best PA-20 at Sun n Fun 2005, and Bronze Lindy at Oshkosh 2006.

Our facility is a spacious 4,360 sq. ft. with a 12 x 28 dedicated paint booth and shop area of 14 x 35.  Our shop is capable of all necessary services which often include major frame tube replacement, welding, avionics upgrades, engine maintenance and replacement.  Permanent fixtures mounted in the ceiling with portable floor stands and adapters for holding a complete fuselage, wing or smaller parts aids in the covering and painting process.

Eaton Aviation Co. is located on a private 1100 foot grass strip at Eaton, NY. For more information about our aircrafts or services, please contact us by telephone or email, or visit us in person.
