Fast pre-owned inspections are target for Jet Aviation
Jet Aviation says it has enhanced its inspection documentation review process, due to increased customer demand. They are performed to provide assurance of an aircraft’s airworthiness and condition.
Jet Aviation operates a network of MRO facilities in Basel, Dubai, Geneva, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore and Vienna that coordinate scheduled and on demand maintenance while further supporting 24/7 global AOG support.

Jet Aviation is advancing its pre-purchase inspection (PPI) offering with customised documentation reviews. It has also established a dedicated PPI documentation review team to facilitate faster turnaround times.

In response to customer demand, Jet Aviation says it has broadened its PPI documentation review process to expedite customised qualitative reports on request. It notes an increased demand across its network 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,” says 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.”

PPIs are performed to provide assurance of an aircraft’s airworthiness. They typically include a thorough documentation review to evaluate the history and technical status of the aircraft, as well as a physical inspection of the aircraft to assess its condition and ensure proper functioning.

Stefan Verkaik, director of aftermarket services and AOG at Jet Aviation’s maintenance and completions centre in Basel, Switzerland says: “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 programme management, Marc Kuehni adds: “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 refurbishments, modifications and upgrades services. Two recent PPIs on large cabin aircraft led to major interior refurbishments coupled with exterior paint.”
