Pre-purchase inspection and a full delivery inspection
The aircraft damages might not be evident to an untrained eye and to form an educated guess as to maintenance problems that might arise in the future. The aircraft may be found to be not airworthy because of faulty equipment or lack of compliance with an airworthiness directive. A pre-purchase inspection is likely to affect price. Aquila has experience in performing Pre-Purchase and Pre-Lease Inspections on behalf of various Lessors, Operators and Owners.
The comprehensive Technical Reports that result from these inspections and reviews assist with an understanding of the condition, maintenance status, airworthiness and ultimately value of the aircraft and can identify problem areas which the perspective buyer or Lessee should be aware of prior to committing to the aircraft.
