Alaska Training Aircraft
All of our Alaska training aircrafts are extremely well maintained. Every year, each aircraft is nearly dismantled and inspected, any discrepancies, which are few, are immediately repaired.
- In addition to this yearly annual inspection, each training aircraft has the same inspection done every 100 hours time in service.
- Between 100 hour inspections, the oil is changed regularly and any mid inspection discrepancies are remedied.
- You can rest assured that our training aircrafts are sound and airworthy, as safety is our number one priority.
