The Aircraft Pre-Buy Inspection
June 22, 2021 | Business Commercial Helicopter
One of the most important stages in the acquisition process is the aircraft pre-buy inspection. Garett Jerde, Founder and Managing Director of JetHQ, talks through a few key aspects of these inspections.
- Pick the Right Shop
You have to determine which maintenance facility in which you have the aircraft pre-buy inspection completed. Aircraft manufacturers, authorized service centers and speciality service centers are all options.
- Ensure the Borescope Inspection Ends Well
The engine is one of the most expensive components of an aircraft, so its inspection needs to go well.
- Every aircraft has corrosion.
Find it, treat it and overcome it correctly – or post purchase you’ll have more problems on your hands.
Obviously, the aircraft pre-buy inspection can be a challenging feat, which is why Garett recommends hiring a consultant or professional organization to manage and be onsite throughout the process. This inspection is a critical part of purchasing your aircraft.
