Pacific Continental Engines (PCE) was founded in 1961 by Justus “Jud” Jackson. After serving in two wars and retiring out of the Air Force, Jud started PCE at Van Nuys Airport. Going into its fourth generation under the ownership of his son, John Jackson, many new services and products were added. PCE specializes in the overhaul of both Continental and Lycoming engines and their associated accessories and components. Through individual focus and group commitment we pride ourselves on producing a safe, reliable product and quality service. Our main facility is now in Simi Valley, CA, offering a full-service engine shop. The avionics department remains on Van Nuys Airport offering FAR 91.411/91.413 inspections along with Garmin new installations and repairs. PCE has become one of the leading service organizations in support of general aviation.
We are equipped with the latest machinery to provide a full array of services ranging from ultrasonic cleaning, media blasting, ultrasonic inspection, magnetic particle inspection, liquid penetrant inspection, computerized engine balancing, accessory/component repair and overhaul, cylinder repair and overhaul, propeller strike inspections, specialized machining, cylinder barrel honing, and final engine test. In addition, we also provide FAR 91.411/91.413 inspections along with new Garmin avionics installations. If we don’t do it, we know where to get it done. PCE only utilizes well-known industry established vendors, and we are factory distributors for Precision Airmotive, Marvel Schebler, and Garmin International. We have thrived in a competitive industry for over 50 years and invite you to contact us for more information to be part of our continued success and reputation.
