FAQ SVG Image

Yes, we travel anywhere in the world to inspect and audit aircraft so the buyer has the best possible information for decision making by someone who was physically there seeing the machine.

The purpose of an aircraft pre-buy or aircraft pre-purchase evaluation is to make sure you are getting what you are paying for. Aircraft must be inspected for airworthiness yearly or at set intervals and sometimes when people sell them they are behind on inspections or they are in need of repairs that can easily exceed the value of the entire aircraft.

Travel is billed at cost only plus a day rate. You must submit or call for a quote as exact quotes change daily.

Please submit a quote request, if we do not have experience with an airframe we probably know someone who does we can refer you to.

Submit a form and we will be in touch very soon. Alternatively you can call us at (888) 777-7207.

Yes, at no extra charge.

Propellerhead Aviation will completely inspect the airframe, engine, avionics, and logbooks. Additionally we will audit the FAA records including all Form FAA 337 details. We will also compare repairs recorded to any repair that may not have been entered or entered improperly. We are looking for undocumented aircraft damage history, corrosion and other possible damage.

No — an annual inspection is way more in-depth and can take several days.

The report will contain a lot of information such as aircraft components and times, inspections results for the airframe, engine(s) and a complete logbook and records audit itemizing upcoming maintenance and inspections (and potential costs) being required. In addition you will receive a customized plan of action noting issues that can be used as negotiating items when finalizing the sale price with the seller.

Submit a form and you will receive a quote via email and a call explaining everything. Should you wish to proceed, pay the invoice and we will coordinate with the seller or broker with the information you provided.

Yes, we use a company called Aerospace Reports.

Yes, we can walk you through the process. For escrow we use a company called Aerospace Reports. They provide the service and are great to deal with. You will receive a full-color report with photos that point out damage or concerns. The report will contain any issues that will affect the price of the aircraft and safety concerns. Additionally the pre-purchase inspection will audit the logbooks.

Sometimes buyers will get two (2) or three (3) pre-buy inspections performed before picking an airplane. However, if the aircraft is beyond economical repair or its just obvious this isn’t what the customer is looking for, Propellerhead Aviation will call and we can discontinue the inspection and possibly retain a credit for another inspection.

Yes, if able and practical, we will test fly the aircraft and verify that all systems in fact, do work. This is not a typical practice among aircraft maintenance facilities.
