No matter the plane, maintaining a well-used aircraft can be a challenge on your budget. Replacing parts, or even making regular repairs can add the costs up quickly. You might start looking to bring the price down by looking for refurbished avionics. These used parts are only a fraction of the price, but you might want to be a little warry of what you might actually be getting from these dealers. The main problem with purchasing these parts is the condition you may find them in. It’s possible you will end up with a part that is in worse shape than the one you currently want to replace. Sometimes when it comes to keeping your plane in top condition, cutting costs isn’t the way to go. Here are things to watch out for when looking for refurbished parts.
