An aircraft with an airframe or engine program is considered to be worth more money due to the fact that the upcoming maintenance is pre-paid and transferable. Another way to look at PistonPower™ is that by enrolling your aircraft it will always be valued as if your engine has ZERO Time Since Overhaul. Please refer to VREF or Aircraft BlueBook for specific increased residual values.
We have several examples to demonstrate the real-world savings. Regardless of the length of time on PistonPower™, one unscheduled event could jeopardize your ability to continue operating your aircraft.
Think of PistonPower™ as your co-pilot. Anything your warranty covers we simply enhance. When you enroll on PistonPower™ Unscheduled the 3 years of coverage begins when your warranty expires, giving you up to 5 full years of protection. When you enroll into a Power-by-the-Hour airframe or engine program your unscheduled protection never expires.
