Aircraft Pre-Purchase Surveys

If you're thinking about purchasing a general aviation aircraft, don't get caught out by aircraft with hidden issues that will lead to subsequent aircraft expenses.  

Our surveys are thorough and look into the physical aircraft structure, power plant, and aircraft maintanance records.   To date, I have not completed a survey where I have not been able to recouperate the survey costs from reducing the sale price of the aircraft due to exposing hidden aircraft issues.
