Aircraft and Flight Equipment FAQ
Aircraft and flight equipment covers not only the airframe, engines, propellers and spare parts of an aircraft but also the avionics, safety and communications equipment to make it easier to look after and operate your aircraft safely.
You should be aware of the certification requirements for each equipment type. These are usually provided by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) in the UK, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the USA, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in the EU or the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) globally.
Most retailers will only require you to buy what you need so there is no need to buy in bulk and they will sell directly to the general public.
Some manufacturers do not sell directly to the public. Where this is the case they publish a list of authorised agents to sell their products or services on their behalf. By using one of these approved agents you are guaranteed to receive genuine parts. The AvPay marketplace has a comprehensive list of both new and used aircraft and flight equipment for sale.
Given the nature of the aviation industry as a global community, many aircraft and flight equipment specialists dispatch and ship their products internationally to even the remotest parts of the world.
If you can visit the retailer's shop or premises you will then be able to get a feel for them and ask any questions you may have. Where this is not possible and your transaction will be online, research the company, viewing their social media and Google reviews, how long they have been in business, if they are an approved reseller for a manufacturer and be suspicious of deals that are “too good to be true” are all ways to ensure a safe online shopping experience.
Aircraft and flight equipment will have a robust set of safety requirements all of which must conform to the regulatory requirements. When doing your research, ensure that the equipment meets the requirements of the regulatory body.
When purchasing aircraft and flight equipment you will want to get the best value for money, however, you shouldn’t base your decision solely on this. Consider the lifetime cost as well as the initial purchase fee for the equipment and think about how you will use the equipment.
As well as ensuring your aircraft flight equipment meets the needs of the regulatory authority these are some factors to consider:
- Eco-Friendly and cost-saving, like being able to plug into aircraft power
- Reliability of the equipment
- The reputation of the manufacturer
- Where will the equipment be used and will it be able to withstand harsh conditions?
- Ability to be customised with your colours and logo
