pre-purchase inspection

 the primary objective is to determine that the aircraft is as represented by the seller and as perceived by the prospective purchaser.  the purpose of the pre-purchase inspection is to protect the interest of the buyer; it is not intended to be an annual/airworthiness inspection.  the purchaser is engaging the inspection agency to professionally evaluate the obvious condition of the aircraft.

            the scope of the inspection may vary with respect to the model and age of the aircraft, the purchaser's intended use, the desired cost of the inspection and the monetary risk the buyer is willing to accept.

            the inspection technician is to be familiar with the aircraft model and responsible for evaluating the following:

1.         general condition of the aircraft

2.         its maintenance status and standards as shown by its log books

3.         known problem areas readily observable by the nature of the abbreviated inspection

4.         obvious unrecorded damage and repairs

5.         the quality of previous repairs and maintenance readily observable by the nature of the abbreviated inspection

6.         log books and records

7.         compliance with the federal airworthiness regulations as shown by the log books and records.
