DER APPROVED MAJOR REPAIRS JUST MAKE SENSE.
Under current regulations, each Evacuation Slide & Slide Raft must 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
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.
