INSPECTION

Sunvair incorporates multiple inspections beyond the CMM requirements which result in “best in industry” overhauls. While self-imposed, these additional inspections ensure a longer on-wing time, thus lowering long term costs to the airlines. Additionally, Sunvair tightens the allowable CMM dimension tolerances to provide product for perfect fit at assembly. Our industry leading inspectors plan repairs that remove the minimal amount of base material, once again allowing a longer life for each part.

Sunvair also maintains the a robust tooling calibration inspection process, utilizing both internal documentation and the use of outside credited calibration companies to ensure we maintain the highest of industry standards.
