** LABOR ONLY (Quoted price includes labor for the inspection but does not include parts, consumables, oil, filters and shop supplies.)
After the inspection is completed, a list of discrepancies, with estimated cost to repair each item, will be given to the owner/operator. Next, a "decision-point meeting" will be had where written approval is given to the maintenance department to correct selected discrepancies. Only then, will repair work commence. To clarify: All parts and labor for the correction of discrepancies, AD compliance and any additional items will be evaluated and quoted separately from the annual inspection.
Keep in mind, the 24 month 91.411 and 91.413 Altimetry and Transponder certifications are not part of inspections. However, we will notify the customer when they are due.
