Refurb of the Month: Mike Van Sicklen’s Cessna 414A


This month’s Refurbished Aircraft of the Month comes from Mike Van Sicklen at Tejas Aero Services in San Marcos, Texas – a shop that specializes in refurbishment of Cessna twins. Tejas recently finished this beautiful 414A owned by Eduardo Valdes. In addition to new paint and interior, a Tejas specialty, the airplane has a pair of new engines by RAM Aircraft of Waco, Texas; new avionics; and aft strakes made by APM. Tejas is a top-rated shop by our sister publication, Aviation Consumer. Find out more at about them at
