3 months! well worth the wait! that better be one very nice canopy. If 3 month is their normal wait time, I would definatly look somewhere else. I like ArizonaHeli's work, but not 3 months wait worth. If their business is that good, time to expand to treat the customers better. I'll stick with my home done jobs....I can put a canopy out in a week or less.

Ignorance is curable, stupidity is for life.

Just Canopies is owned/operated by Mort Flint. He's a great guy to work with and does a first class paint job.

Arizona Heli is owned/operated by Bill Ludwig. He's also a great guy and does equally great work.

http://arizonaheli.com/

They're the two best in my opinion.
