The pre-purchase inspection, also called a prebuy, is a critical step in the aircraft purchase process. Similar to a home inspection, a prebuy will help you discover any issues before committing to the purchase. A prebuy inspection quickly determines the condition of the airplane as well as its true value by uncovering paperwork discrepancies, airframe and engine defects, maintenance issues, and airworthiness concerns that could make the airplane unsafe, illegal or too costly to buy. In other words, a prebuy is cheap insurance that can protect you from a bad deal. The prebuy also serves to represent you, the buyer and your interests during the purchase process to assist in final negations and closing terms.

Did you know despite the vast regulations that govern pilots, aircraft operations, and aircraft maintenance, there are no regulations whatsoever that govern aircraft transactions, which is a huge reason why people can get burned. The number 1 cause for litigation during an aircraft transaction is failing to perform a prebuy. Performing a prebuy is not only your right, but your responsibility as a buyer. Remember, once you signed the dotted line, all of the aircraft’s issues, defects, and discrepancies become your problem, and the FAA holds you accountable.

Many people refer to a prebuy as an inspection, when in reality it is an evaluation, or better yet, an investigation. You see, aircraft inspections are regulated and governed by the FAA, such as annual inspections or phase inspections. However, the FAA provides absolutely no description, guidance, or oversight of a prebuy because it is not recognized as an inspection. Therefore, a prebuy is not regulated in any way and has no set standards. That is, until now. We are raising the bar and setting THE standard for what a pre-purchase evaluation is and what it should include.

The lack of regulation and guidance means that everyone’s idea of what a prebuy is and what it should include is different. Some feel that simply glancing over the logbooks and performing a brief visual examination is enough while other believe that doing a scheduled inspection, such as an annual or phase inspection will suffice.

Look, every airplane has a different story to tell and it’s our job to uncover the facts—from its ownership and maintenance history, to its structural, mechanic, and cosmetic integrity, all the way to its flight performance and systems health, we believe in leaving no stone unturned. Why? Because the only time you can get free maintenance on an airplane is before you buy it!

We specialize in performing prebuys on aircraft nationwide. In fact, it is our core business. We have the experience, tools, and resources to perform a thorough, comprehensive, and unbiased prebuy evaluation on any airplane—from a Cessna 182 to a Citation Jet—using our proven, three-phase process. We know how defects influence aircraft value as well as cost of ownership and can help with final negotiations. We are licensed and insured to provide adequate protection against lawsuits and litigation. We travel to the airplane, so it does not have to be flown to another airport saving you the liability, headache, and expense of relocating the airplane.
We do not outsource the prebuy to a third-party shop. We perform the prebuy ourselves as licensed mechanics, inspectors, and pilots. You will have direct communication with our team and always remain in the loop regarding the status of the airplane. We customize our prebuy evaluations based on the aircraft make and model as well as its maintenance and operational history. We also perform a flight test on the aircraft with an experienced pilot covered under the owner’s insurance to check the fitness of the engine(s), systems, and avionics.
We take a step-by-step, pay as you go approach. The objective is to learn as much about the airplane as quickly as possible before you invest a lot of time or money to see the airplane in person. Every airplane has a different story to tell and it’s our job to uncover the facts—from the aircraft’s ownership and maintenance history to its structural, mechanical, and cosmetic integrity, all the way to its flight performance and systems health—we leave no stone unturned. We can also help coordinate logistics such as getting copies of the logbooks, ordering FAA records and title search, scheduling the date to see the airplane, and handling travel plans.
