Preliminary Inspection

A preliminary inspection of an aircraft is your opportunity to research and investigate your potential investment before committing any more money to the purchase process. The preliminary inspection should include a thorough inspection of the mechanical as well as the cosmetic condition of the aircraft. In addition, TAG can carry out a preliminary records review to ensure that the regulatory records of the aircraft are up to date. An often-overlooked step of the pre-buy is investigating which modifications repairs are legally installed on the aircraft as this could have an impact on the choice of registry of your aircraft.
This is a highly recommended service to be performed before the sales and purchase agreement has been finalised. Many things can add affect the value of an aircraft; our experience team can guide you in the right direction to avoid costly pitfalls at a later stage.

Pre-Purchase Inspection (PPI)

A critical requirement for the purchase process of an aircraft is the Pre-Purchase Inspection. The PPI work scope will depend on the age and maintenance inspection cycle of the aircraft. Typically, a PPI will consist of a maintenance inspection of the aircraft and a thorough records review. Full systems check in-flight is highly recommend along with a borescope of the engines and APU even for young aircraft. Engaging TAG’s services to oversee and scrutinize the PPI process adds value for you the buyer.

Technical Acceptance

A detailed technical acceptance process that has been thoroughly documented is critical, let us take care of this. This should include processes to address unconditional technical acceptance, conditional technical acceptance and rejection.

Entry into Service

Preparation for the aircraft’s entry into service/operation needs to begin well in advance of the transaction closing. It is integral to the coordination of the final closing of the purchase transaction.
