Dallas Aeronautical Services (DAS) has launched an owner-centric, non-transferable lifetime warranty programme that protects both acoustic panel and inlet structure assembly functionality and workmanship for the life of in-service Challenger 300-350 aircraft. In addition, the company will continue to offer the existing transferable 36-month warranty option.
“This lifetime warranty is the direct result of the quality of our comprehensive inlet repair, field-tested longevity and post-repair performance lifespan,” says vice president sales and marketing Eli da Silva. “Our OEM spec inlet repair is comprehensive, thorough and continually recognised by Challenger 300 and 350 owners and operators. Lifetime coverage of both inlet acoustic panel and structure repairs is the next logical step to support our clients. This programme surpasses OEM and current industry warranty offerings.”
The warranty covers wire mesh and perforated skin, including corrosion; bonded assembly to include the core and skin, including corrosion; outer skins, including erosion on the graphite surface at fastener locations; and mount/attach ring, including corrosion.
Each overhaul is performed using an FAA approved DAS overhaul manual, bringing the inlet to meet/exceed OEM standards, including aft-mount ring replacement, outer barrel assembly repair and customer specific paint and polish. DAS offers fixed pricing and 12-14 day turn time for each inlet overhaul.
“In addition to the non-transferable lifetime warranty, we also support our customers with a fully transferable 36-month inlet repair warranty option, which is based on the date of the of 8130-3 airworthiness approval,” adds da Silva. “Both warranty options include corrosion coverage and our recognised workmanship. We feel this is an essential service for our customers.”
Both the lifetime and 36-month warranty programmes include a thorough pre-overhaul assessment and consultation, providing Challenger 300-350 owners and operators full disclosure details and specifics of the warranty options.
