Technical acceptance of a new aircraft commences at the
green aircraft stage, continues through the interior completion
process and culminates at final acceptance and delivery.
Pre-owned aircraft requiring refurbishment also require a
great deal of attention to technical issues. Having ACL represent
the buyer in all related technical issues ensures a quality
product, cost savings and a timely delivery. ACL has successfully
implemented a unique and comprehensive reporting system for
our clients, allowing them to keep abreast of all issues
throughout the project.
Prior to the contractual acceptance of a new or pre-owned aircraft, ACL can conduct
a comprehensive Pre-Buy Evaluation. This includes a complete review of the interior
and exterior quality standard, Specification, Service Bulletins, Airworthiness
Directives, disposition of discrepancies, life limited components, systems installations
and flight test results. A detailed report including photographs will be produced
that can be used as a basis for final contract negotiation and future warranty
Technical acceptance of the green aircraft includes the review of functional
test results, identifying deviations between as-built and as-designed configurations,
snag review, and documentation control. We will perform detailed inspections
on the airframe, engine, components and accessories to identify any undocumented
damage, problems or future concerns. A thorough paperwork review will be conducted
to detect any possible discrepancies on major part changes, serial number listings,
modification status, flight test and production test data.
During the interior completion process, we will monitor all technical aspects
of the aircraft including production drawings, airframe/engine/system build quality,
snags, ground and flight test results, serialized component list, certification
documentation, Service Bulletin incorporation and product improvements. During
final acceptance, a final review of all documents including the AFM, component
handbooks, warranty paperwork and passenger briefing cards will be conducted.
Conformity of placards, circuit breaker layouts, switch panels, etc. will be
assured. ACL will also conduct a detailed of inspection of all loose and spare
equipment. A final report outlining the open items at delivery will be produced,
providing a means to track all remaining issues.
