INSPECTIONS

Annual Condition Inspections

utilizing our own extensive checklist/inspection based upon NAVWEPS and aging aircraft issues that the military never had to address.

TWE is the ONLY shop in the Country that completes this checklist which includes all of the complex   T-28 systems.  A copy of the checklist is provided at inspection completion and becomes part of the permanent aircraft records.

We encourage T-28 Owners & Pilots to participate in an ACI.  The more you know about this beautiful but complex Warbird, the safer pilot you will be!

Pre-buy inspections

Jamie has created a detailed pre-purchase inspection checklist specific to the T-28 to help a potential buyer decide on the right aircraft.  Don’t be taken advantage of by a salesman-be informed and know what you’re buying.
