Universal Avionics announced a new extended warranty program for owners of Universal products this week at the Aircraft Electronics Association convention in Las Vegas. The new FlightAssure program is available after expiration of the original two-year warranty and for most older Universal avionics units.
Customers have been asking for extended warranties, according to director of product support Andy Seaton. “They want stability in operating costs. Costly repairs might not be budgeted, and this way they don’t have to worry about a surprise.”
Universal Avionics dealers can sell the FlightAssure program and perform repairs under warranty. FlightAssure is only for Universal Avionics products, and the contract is on a fixed price, annual basis and fully transferable. Other FlightAssure features include available loaner units, 24/7 AOG coverage, component repairs (including no-fault-found removals), removal and installation allowances and free outbound second-day air freight.
