3 Things to Consider When Choosing an FAA Approved Aircraft Repair Station
Have you ever sent your aircraft component to the shop, been told your repair would take a couple weeks, then didn’t hear from them again for a month— or more? Or got a decent quote on a repair, then the final bill had an extra zero you weren’t expecting?
These days, it’s tough to find a straight-shooting shop that puts the customer first. But at Aircraft Accessories of Oklahoma, we believe you deserve a reliable, high-quality, trustworthy experience. That’s why we go above and beyond to deliver the best possible service, repairs, and price.
Before you send your aircraft parts off to the other guys, consider these three factors:
1. Look for a shop that’s honest from the start
We get it— no one wants to hear that supply chain issues mean their essential aircraft component may take a few weeks to replace. But you can bet we’ll be upfront and honest with you if that’s the case. And whenever possible, we’ll work with you to find another solution that meets your needs and timeline.
Whether you’re looking for an inspection, overhaul, or repair, you can count on our accurate turn times. From the moment you reach out to us about a service, to the moment your delivery hits your doorstep, we’ll keep you up-to-date and informed.
How do we do it? We’ve got an integrated team of over 35 of the best technicians in the industry, and they communicate better than a NASCAR pit crew. That’s how we know what’s in stock, what tools are available, what’s on the bench, and what’s headed out the door. And that’s how our above-and-beyond team can help you figure out exactly what you need to get back in the air.
Put us to the test! Give us a call, and our knowledgeable sales team will help you find the right solution for your situation. And if they don’t know, they know exactly where to find our technicians… On site, and ready to serve. Our all-hands-on-deck approach means you get the best service, from the sales expert on the phone to the team behind them working hard on the floor.
At Aircraft Accessories of Oklahoma, we believe reliability runs a lot deeper than telling you what a lead time or a cost will be. That’s why we’re honest with you from the get-go. And if you’re looking for a service that’s just not possible, or a part that can’t be found, we’ll do everything we can to help you find the best alternative.
2. Don’t forget, experience matters
When you’re dealing with critical aircraft components, real life, on-the-bench experience isn’t just a want, it’s a need. Here at Aircraft Accessories of Oklahoma, we’ve been in business for over 60 years— so we know a thing or two about every part on every aircraft. We’ve even written the book on some of them!
Many of our leading technicians have worked in the field for decades. From our prop shop and fuel shop to our aircraft magneto department and inspection rooms, the techs you’ll find there are some of the best in the industry.
Why is experience important? Because some of these parts are so finicky that they have to be put back together at the exact angle they were before— including every custom-sized gasket, spring, and ring they came with. Unfortunately, you won’t find that level of excellence with a fresh tech.
Our experience means every single step of the installation, repair, or overhaul process is completed with a high level of accuracy. You might have had a less-than-ideal service experience across town, but here, you can expect five-star service every time.
3. Prioritize high-quality service
At Aircraft Accessories of Oklahoma, we believe the best repairs are completed by a single tech, from start to finish. Because we care about the integrity of your equipment, only one highly experienced tech will have their hands on it— no moving across the floor from bench to bench or passing these precise repairs down the line.
When you ship us a part and we get to work, one tech handles your repair, exchange, overhaul, or install from the moment we open the box to the moment we tape it back shut.
Remember those parts that have to be reassembled with perfect precision? Where every original ring, spring, and gasket has to be reinstalled at the perfect angle? When you’ve got one tech on your job, you can ensure that part is coming back in optimal condition.
Precision isn’t the only benefit of our one-tech model. If you have a question about your service after the job is done, we know exactly how to direct your call. And you can bet your tech has detailed notes on the exact issue and repair process. There’s no question about who did what. This means that we aren’t missing steps, pieces aren’t getting lost in the process, and we can ensure that each technician is using their skills to the best of their abilities.
