Pre-purchase inspection

When buying an aircraft, it is important to have a qualified, neutral technician or organization to do a proper pre-purchase inspection of the prospective aircraft. An in-depth Pre-Purchase Inspection (PPI) at an authorized service center is the only way to minimize potential risks. Altenrhein Aviation offers all levels of Pre-Purchase Inspections, providing you with all the necessary information on the technical condition and history of your chosen aircraft, and allowing you to make an informed decision regarding the true value and technical status of your chosen aircraft.

We offer our customers three PPI packages:

  • Lite
  • Basic (incl. engine borescope inspection)
  • Extensive (incl. corrosion inspection)
