CEDAR HILL, Texas — Dallas Aeronautical Services (DAS, www.dasvcs.com) is proud to announce the launch of an industry-leading Inlet Acoustic and Structural Inlet Overhaul Lifetime Warranty program for Challenger 300 and 350 aircraft owners and operators.

The owner-centric, non-transferable Lifetime Warranty program protects both acoustic panel and inlet structure assembly functionality and workmanship for the life of the in-service aircraft. In addition, the company will continue to offer the existing, transferable 36-month warranty option, continuing DAS’ historical pledge of assurance and flexibility to aircraft owners and operator clientele.

“This Lifetime Warranty is the direct result of the quality of our comprehensive inlet repair, field-tested longevity, and post-repair performance lifespan,” Eli da Silva, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, DAS. “Our OEM spec inlet repair is comprehensive, thorough, and continually recognized by Challenger 300 and 350 owners and operators. Lifetime coverage of both inlet acoustic panel and structure repairs is the next logical step to support our clients. This program surpasses OEM and current industry warranty offerings.”

The DAS Inlet Acoustic and Structural Lifetime Warranty covers the following overhaul components:

  • Wire mesh and perforated skin — including corrosion.
  • Bonded assembly to include the core and skin — including corrosion.
  • Outer skins — including erosion on the graphite surface at fastener locations.
  • Mount/attach ring — including corrosion.

Each overhaul is performed using an FAA-approved DAS Overhaul Manual, bringing the inlet to meet/exceed OEM standards, including aft-mount ring replacement, outer barrel assembly repair, and customer-specific paint and polish. DAS offers fixed pricing and 12- to 14-day turn time for each inlet overhaul.

“In addition to the non-transferable Lifetime Warranty, we also support our customers with a fully transferable, 36-month inlet repair warranty option, which is based on the date of the of 8130-3 Airworthiness Approval,” states da Silva. “Both warranty options include corrosion coverage and our recognized workmanship. We feel this is an essential service for our customers.”
