Gulf Coast Avionics

The GarciasFor over 23 years, family-owned Gulf Coast Aviation has been providing quality merchandise from name brand manufacturers to keep pilots, aircraft owners and operators flying. This Lakeland, FL-based company does installation, repairs and sales for avionics. Rick Garcia and his son Ricky manned the booth at NBAA2008, and said that this year, most of their visitors were excited about the Garmin G-600 they had on display. The Garcias have been coming to NBAA Annual Meeting & Conventions for over ten years because as Rick said, “This is a great show and we do good business here. We get lots of contacts here – meeting with customers both new and old. But we also get the opportunity to meet with people we wouldn’t otherwise know existed, and that’s good for our business.” While Rick Garcia enjoyed coming to NBAA2008, he jokes that he looks forward to the day when Attendees will only see his son Ricky, and he’ll be retired.
