Prior to or as a part of the title transfer of both new and used aircraft, a physical acceptance inspection and test flight is required. The inspection should be carried out in accordance with the aircraft acceptance program.
When purchasing an aircraft from a manufacturer, the acceptance inspection is sometimes devided into two parts. The first part is done when the baseline aircraft, also known as the green aircraft, is delivered and the title transfer may occur. The second part is done after completion services (customization) have concluded and the aircraft is at final delivery.
ACS can carry out these inspections independently or as a part of the customer’s team.
