Aircraft Annual inspection
Our priority is to ensure your flying safety
Boost your confidence in your aircraft, spend a weekend with us doing an owner assisted annual inspection, or we can come to your location to complete it there. When we complete your Annual Inspection all of the maintenance due items, both calendar and hourly are entered into a maintenance tracking program and by sending us your TACH time occasionally we can update your due list and send you a current report, additionally we can include a BFR or medical requirement on the list anything you need. Our program has predictive due date technology so if you do not update it for a while it is still tracking your hours using your previous usage.
Annual inspections are important to ensure your safety and the safety of your passengers. For a new plane, the first 5 years do not produce many discrepancies, but as they get older they crack, corrode, and wear, the challenge is to find these problems before they cause a canceled flight, emergency landing, or worse. Annual inspections are not about signing off your inspection . They are the objective of your aircraft maintenance provider to assure the reliability of your aircraft as it was designed. Buy finding those items that are prone to fail, during an annual inspection you need to check each item for security, this is done by putting your hand on it and shaking it, many times terminals or fasteners break off in my hand, I am guilty of breaking a lot of airplanes with the tips of my finger. The owner complains that I broke his airplane, then occasionally later recounts, it probably would have failed soon. I do the best I can to prevent premature failure, that is how I keep a 40-year accident free record. Here are just a few items I have found. Be safe out there!
