THE ‘SMART’ WAY TO MAINTAIN ASSET VALUE?
KEEPING YOUR AIRCRAFT AT PEAK PERFORMANCE WITH AN UPDATED INTERIOR AND CONFIGURATION!
Why is it good business to keep your aircraft up to date?
Your aircraft is a major personal and/or corporate asset. When a decision is made to upgrade or repair your airframe or avionics, it is imperative that the work be done “cost effectively”, and, “the right way”.
“Repairing or updating Avionics or Airframe? Adding after-market options?” “Make sure it’s done right.” -Ben Shirazi
Maintaining and repairing your aircraft can be a major expense and has to be considered within the overall valuation of each aircraft and program. All decisions come down to the “bottom line” and are calculated into the cost of owning and/or running your fleet or personal aircraft.
As with maintaining any other asset, it is important to choose a company with a history of success and impeccable credentials to perform your repairs and/or upgrades or after-market add-ons. Though it can be tempting to save money by choosing the least expensive alternative, is not always the best choice, and by using FAA approved PMA (Parts Manufacturer Approval) parts when your aircraft is in need of repair, updates or even when you want to add aftermarket options, it could come with unanticipated “cost overruns” and even may invalidate your current warranties if ‘compliance’ was not checked before starting work.
