George Cude

George is a certified aviation mechanic and specializes in maintenance and inspection of airplanes. He has been an employee all his life and decided it was time to have his own airplane repair business. George’s wife, Cherrye, came to the Angelo State University - Small Business Development Center and met with Advisor Paul Howard to get assistance in this business venture.

Advisor Howard discussed how to register the business, legal structure and sales tax issues with Cherrye. She said, “Mr. Howard helped on our decision to be sole proprietorship instead of LLC at this time. He explained the pros and cons of each one…Also information on credit card machines and tax numbers.”

The Cude’s found a hangar on a small airstrip that was available near West Texas Boys Ranch. It was very reasonable and a perfect location for planes to land and have their annual inspections performed. Cude Aviation is now in business and it created two jobs for San Angelo.
