Experts agree that a used aircraft should be inspected by a qualified technician before negotiating the final selling price. Even if you are a mechanically inclined pilot, the excitement of buying an aircraft can cause people to get caught up in the emotions and can lead to missed mechanical, cosmetic and safety issues during visual inspections and test flights. There is a lot to consider when inspecting an aircraft: the FAA has published the comprehensive Advisory Circular AC 43.13-1B which weighs in at 646 pages!  

We have produced a video segment in which we cover important information you need to know when doing a pre-purchase inspection on a Rotax powered aircraft. (You can CLICK THIS LINK to view the final inspection report.) 

Watch our Rotax 912ULS powered Kitfox V Pre-Buy inspection video to follow along as we cover the WHY, WHO, and HOW regarding a pre-purchase inspection for your Rotax powered aircraft!
