Another Point Regarding King Air Phase Inspections

aug16-p16I read Dean Benedict’s excellent article regarding King Air inspections featured in the August 2016 issue of King Air magazine. I wanted to add to his information, something I have experienced with some King Air operators that have limited knowledge of our inspection program.

One of the stipulations, as Dean correctly indicated, is that the King Air must have at least one Phase inspection completed at the 12-month timeframe. What some owners do not realize is that there is no tolerance on the calendar time and if they go over that 12-month period, the aircraft must have a complete Phase 1 through 4 inspection completed – an unexpected expense for a low use aircraft.

Many thanks.
