Periodic inspection increases safety be catching dependencies before a failure occurs. In addition, the inspection process provides a great opportunity to upgrade or install modifications.


Winterset Aviation Inspection Services:

This is a critical phase of aircraft maintenance, only to be conducted by competent, experienced, and thorough inspection agencies.

Truthfully ask yourself…

  • Is my aircraft being thoroughly inspected?
  • Am I treated like a valued customer or just another piece of revenue?
  • Does my maintenance provider listen to my needs? Do they satisfy them?
  • Am I satisfied with the current communication process of my maintenance provider?
  • Am I getting the most out of my current maintenance provider?

We won’t be able to answer any of these questions for you, but we will tell you how things are done at Winterset Aviation!

Our Inspection Process:

Aircraft acceptance: Aircraft is accepted, a client/aircraft profile is created, any discrepancies are documented and discussed.

Aircraft Inspection: Who has the most knowledge of the aircraft? The manufacturer! All inspections are conducted in accordance with manufacturer’s guidance. Each model is unique, and using the manufacturer’s checklist will ensure no item is overlooked.

Customer Contact: After inspection is complete we’ll inform you of discrepancies and discuss the options for correcting them.

Inspection Close-Out: After authorization discrepancies are corrected, a post inspection engine run up is completed, aircraft systems are given an operational check, aircraft is paneled up, paper work is completed, and the aircraft is washed and vacuumed!
