High Desert Avionics
Our Story: High Desert Avionics
High Desert Avionics, Inc. began in 1993 in a small, two-room building near Barnes Aviation.Its founders, Jeff Landon and his wife Kerry Landon, had to conduct all of their installations outdoors. A year later, they were able to move into their permanent hanger (still near Barnes Aviation) at William J. Fox Air Field in Lancaster, Calif.
“Jeff’s always loved airplanes and he came out and started working on airplanes when he was really young and that sparked his interest in it,” said Kerry Landon, Jeff had worked with another shop but when “there was no one out here to do [avionics] so Jeff stepped in and started this up. as it was a dream come true”
“We saw a need,” said Avionics Manager Jeff Landon, “and we filled it.” " We get to work with aircraft and the most wonderful people who we consider more than just customers but a part of our Aviation Family and Friends."
The main hangar is capable of holding up to four aircraft at a time, and there is additional hangar space as well. They can accommodate an aircraft up to the size of a Beechcraft King Air; the rest of the work is completed on the flightline for aircraft larger than that as well as helicopters which also can be hangared. On average, the company works with multiple aircraft per day. No job is to small or too big. They are an aviation family and a small business with big capabilites handling all avionic needs out there. They have been featured in magazine articles for their full panel upgrades. All of Jeff's children are pilots as well as Jeff so their customers can rest assurred they understand every aspect of flying first hand and they value their customers and their aircraft.

Do not take your airplane anywhere else! Our school fleet of 5 Pipers, all Garmin GPS', ALWAYS go to High Desert Avionics for ALL their avionics needs. We make the trip from Santa Monica for however small the repair needed is. The extra distance cuts our avionics costs in half because the fix is always good, on time, the compliance paperwork is always completed right there on the spot and in perfect legality, and the shop rates are better than reasonable. Been doing this for 7 years with no desire to do it any other way.
Jeff at HD Avionics is on top of his trade! He knows avionics like no other. He is always there to help in anyway he can, no matter the size of the job. Excellent service, excellent shop, excellent understanding! Highly recommended.
