Important Information for Clients
Purchasing an aircraft parts is a huge investment and there are several aspects of ownership that should be considered serious prior to signing the sale agreement. AeroBase is dedicated to ensuring that our client’s buying aircraft parts is as rewarding as it can possible. Here are major factors that you should consider when buying aircraft parts:
Inspecting before Purchase
Pre-purchase inspection is extremely important. Most of the times, this element is overlooked during an aircraft purchase decision making process. The truth is, most aircraft's have primary flaws that can cost you thousands of dollars to rectify which can be identified during the pre-purchase inspection. There are different ways through which such anomalies can be rectified. For instance, the prospective buy may request the aircraft manufacturer or owner to rectify the problem or renegotiate the price.
The other factor to consider when buying aircraft parts is the time between overhaul (TBO). This is a major determinant of resale value. TBO is measured in engine hours; the higher the TBO, the higher the price. It is in your best interest to be aware of an aircraft’s TBO because this factor enables you to negotiate the price of the aircraft particularly when you are purchasing a used aircraft.
Check the aircraft for major repairs because those will affect its value significantly. The impact of damage history on an aircraft’s value depends on the kind of accident, the extent to which main components were involved and the nature of accident. An aircraft that has a damage history must be scrutinized seriously to ensure that it is repaired well.
