Do I Need An Avionics Service Plan During Heavy Maintenance?

December 2023

Frequently, customers don’t think they need an avionics protection plan when down for heavy maintenance. They should think again.

A Gulfstream G150 was in for scheduled maintenance at a Duncan Aviation Satellite shop when an avionics failure was discovered. The customer was introduced to the benefits of CASPSM (Collins Avionics Service Program) and was enrolled quickly so the failure could be covered at a minimal cost. 50% of the failure was covered and added to the contract's price. Throughout the remainder of the maintenance event, we discovered several additional part issues.

By enrolling in coverage, our customer saved over $50K in the first month of being on CASP, which easily outweighed the cost of protecting the entire aircraft for a full year. 

Avionics Protection Plans, like CASP, protect you during maintenance should a failure(s) be discovered, ensuring you will not incur additional, unplanned charges.  

Customers often assume failures can’t happen when they aren’t flying, but talk to any of Duncan Aviation’s Satellite Shops, and they’ll confirm it’s a widespread occurrence.

Now, through December 31, 2023, an additional 5% discount is being offered to all aircraft not previously on CASP or that let coverage lapse before December 31, 2022. Please note validation of eligibility will be based on the aircraft serial number

Contact any Satellite Avionics Shop for more information on enrolling your aircraft in either service program before maintenance events. www.DuncanAviation.aero/locations/#satellites
