Jet Aviation supports increased demand for pre-purchase inspections

Jet Aviation today announced that it is advancing its Pre-Purchase Inspection (PPI) offering with customized documentation reviews.

In addition, the company has established a dedicated PPI documentation review team to facilitate faster turn-around times.

In direct response to customer demand, Jet Aviation has broadened its PPI documentation review process to expedite customized qualitative reports on request.

Coupled with its newly established, dedicated documentation review team, this is a unique offering in this fast-moving market.

Across its network, the company notes increased demand for PPIs for aircraft of all OEMs and a range of aircraft types.

“Jet Aviation has been supporting all aircraft types and models throughout their lifecycle for more than half a century,” said Stefan Benz, Jet Aviation’s senior vice president of regional operations for EMEA.

“We understand the complexities of aircraft management and have the experience, regulatory knowledge, and technical skills to develop truly turnkey solutions for our customers.

“As a neutral party to these transactions, we are proud to extend our professional expertise to help customers make informed decisions regarding the true value of aircraft in the market.”

PPIs are performed to provide assurance of an aircraft’s airworthiness.

Stefan Verkaik, director of aftermarket services & AOG at Jet Aviation’s maintenance and completions center in Basel, Switzerland, said: “Timing is critical to used aircraft transactions.

“With our own dedicated PPI documentation review team and certified engineers and technicians in all aircraft types, we are pleased to provide impartial and critical evaluations of aircraft to meet our customers’ needs within an agreed time.”

Basel’s Senior Director of Program Management, Marc Kuehni, added: “PPIs can identify possible anomalies that may not be evident to an untrained eye and customers appreciate our experience, expertise and flexibility.

“They also value our extensive on-site capabilities and often come back to us following purchase of their aircraft for RMU services (Refurbishments, Modification and Upgrades).

“Two recent PPIs on large cabin aircraft led to major interior refurbishments coupled with exterior paint.”
