DER APPROVED MAJOR REPAIRS JUST MAKE SENSE.

Under current regulations, each Evacuation Slide & Slide Raft are recommended be removed from the aircraft every 3 years & inspected by an approved FAR Part 145 Repair Station. 


The OEM recommends a yearly inspection and overhaul after a slide has reached 15 years. AVI guarantees competitive pricing & quality being one of the few repair stations worldwide with DER Major Repair Capabilities.

BENEFITS OF THE AVI ALTERNATIVE

  • REDUCED TURN AROUND TIME

    The turn around time of a DER repair is well below the current lead times of procuring a new unit. In many cases 3 weeks compared to 36 weeks lead time from the OEM.

  • SUBSTANTIAL COST SAVINGS

    The cost of the DER Repair of an existing inflatable is significantly below the cost of either:

    • Purchasing a complete assembly new.

    • Purchasing a unit with less  than a 15 Year DOM.

  • EXTEND THE OPERATIONAL LIFE

    The unit will have a REINSTATED 15 Years of life beginning on the date of the repair which allows subsequent required inspections & overhauls to be conducted every 3 Years vs. Every Year!

  • TIME MANAGEMENT & ASSET ALLOCATION

    The DER repair of a post 15 Year Evacuation Slide provides a simple solution to the time-consuming process of evaluating best options.

Major Repairs

share the conformity of OEM Designs.

When it comes to replacement parts, the large OEMs would prefer to have a monopoly on the aftermarket business. But as with any industry, the presence of alternative aftermarket products of comparable, or even better, quality drives down prices.

AVI holds an authorization granted by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to repair evacuation slides. Major Repairs must pass the same rigorous quality and testing requirements as OEM parts, but are significantly lower in price.
