SHIPPING AND DELIVERY
Same Day Shipping by 1pm & Delivery Date Estimate
Aviation Parts Executive Inc. provides same day shipment of in stock items if the order is received prior to 1 pm local time at the origin warehouse of the shipment using the carrier UPS. For online orders, items in the Shopping Cart will display stock status as well as an expected delivery day based on the shipping method chosen when “Default” origin is used. This date will factor the time the order is placed as well as origin warehouse and destination zip code. Carrier delays due to weather and other factors outside of our control removes Aviation Parts Executive Inc. responsibility from quoted delivery date. Delivery dates will depend on exact time of order placement, so the true expected date will be referenced on the Order Confirmation screen. On Backordered items, Out of Stock items, Special Orders, Dropship items, and Non-stocking Products, we will provide an expected ship date if the item is on order from the supplier. However, these dates are expected delivery date of PO’s and we cannot guarantee the items will be delivered within that window as factory delays and other elements outside of our control can delay the order.
Ship and Backorder
Orders shipping within the lower 48 USA are defaulted to ship and backorder. If you would like your order held and shipped in one package, please note in the Special Instructions box that you would like the order to ‘Ship Complete’. If you have a preferred ship date other than the date of order placement, please note that in the Special Instructions as well. Special instructions or credit card declines may delay fulfillment of the order.
Shipping charges provided online are calculated from the weights and dimensions of the box(es) required to ship all the items on the order. The system will look for the optimal fulfillment logic to distribute the items to the required warehouse(s). Shipping rates quoted online will be applied to the order at invoicing. The exception to this is the Ship and Backorder option for International shipments in which case an estimate is provided and actual shipping charge will be calculated at time of invoicing each shipment. If the shipping charges seem incorrect for the items on the order, please use the Special Instructions box in the Shopping Cart to request a manual freight quote from a member of our staff. We will evaluate the contents of the order, origin warehouse(es), and destination and provide via email a new shipping quote. Please keep in mind that the order will be held until you confirm the new shipping estimate provided by the staff member.
Shipping costs for certain product mixes or types cannot be calculated online. Examples of these types of products are wood, metal, oversized items, made to order items and other specialty cut materials. When this is the case, the shipping costs will be calculated at the invoicing station. The shipping costs charged will be based on the exact weights and dimensions of the actual box(es) used to ship the order. This condition will be referenced in the shopping cart by a note that says ‘We are unable to accurately estimate the shipping costs of your order. Shipping Costs will be Calculated at Time of Shipping’. If you would like a manual estimate before the order ships, please use the Special Instructions box in the Shopping Cart to request a manual freight quote from a member of our staff. We will evaluate the contents of the order, origin warehouse(es), and destination and provide via email a new shipping quote. Please keep in mind that the order will be held until you confirm the new shipping estimate provided by the staff member.
Some oversize charges which were not able to be predicted online will be assessed at time of shipment. Packages over 48 inches in length will be assessed an additional handling fee as declared in the carrier’s service guide. All packages will be charged at the greater of actual or dimensional weight. Pursuant to the carrier service guide, packages over 96 inches in length or 130 inches length and girth will also be assessed a fee for exceeding the maximum package size, in addition to being billed at a 90lb oversize rate. Dimensional weight is calculated as the total cubic inches of a package divided by a dimensional weight factor (domestic US is 194, outside US is 166). Some oversized items can be cut for shipping. If you think this might apply, please return to your shopping cart and include cutting instructions in the Special Instructions box.
Hazardous items may be assessed an additional hazardous shipping charge for each package containing hazardous materials. This fee, if it applies, will be added to the calculated freight charge. Shipping charges for phone in sales are calculated at the time of shipping based on the weights and dimensions of the box(es) used to ship the order. If you would like an estimate, just ask your friendly Aviation Parts Executive Inc., sales agent and they will provide you one.

Correspondence should be sent in English or Spanish to expedite service.
To economize on the shipping costs, International orders are generally shipped complete unless otherwise advised by the customer. We utilize UPS, Fed-Ex and DHL for most international shipments. Shipments by UPS and Fed-Ex are highly recommended because of the excellent traceability of the shipments. Our international department also utilizes the services of many other air and sea carriers. Should the services of a freight forwarder be necessary we can work with one who is familiar with our service or with one of your choice to meet all your shipment requirements.
All freight, duty and customs charges are the responsibility of the customer. If Aviation Parts Executive Inc. is billed these charges on your behalf, you agree that you will be billed by Aviation Parts Executive Inc. for these charges.

We prefer first time orders to ship to the same address as the credit card billing address. If the order is routed to management for approval, we will verify the address with the customer’s bank. The billing address must match exactly before the order can be processed for shipment. Additional forms of identification may be requested in order to verify legitimacy of the order. If we cannot confirm validity of card holder, we may request a wire transfer to complete the sale.
If the customer requests to ship to another address, we will first verify the billing address. If this address is correct, we will verify that the shipping address is also on file with the bank. If it is not, we request that the customer call his bank and advise them to add the alternate address to his file for verification. The customer will then notify us the address is on file with the bank. We will then call the bank and confirm. Once confirmed, the order will be released to ship. We may also, at our discretion, attempt to contact the cardholder by phone to confirm the order. If the alternate address is a hotel, we reserve the right to decline shipment until payment is received in full in advance and we confirm the customer name is registered with the hotel. We reserve the right to insist that any first time order ship to a verified billing address only.
We reserve the right to request an authorization on your credit card for the amount of the order at the time of order. When the order ships, we will settle and collect the amount of the order including but not limited to the merchandise, applicable taxes, freight, and/or ancillary charges and any authorized amounts in excess of the settled amount will be released. If your order is not able to ship before the authorization expires, you agree to allow us to settle that authorization to hold the parts for you until the order is ready for shipment. You agree to hold Aviation Parts Executive Inc. harmless for any costs you incur due to over limit or insufficient funds as assessed by your Credit Card Company or bank. Special order or dropship items are settled at the time the purchase order to our supplier is issued.
We accept PayPal payments (via our website only) provided that the shipping address is a PayPal confirmed address. PayPal payments cannot be combined with other payment methods. Orders through PayPal cannot be modified. You must cancel the order and place a new order if necessary. The entire order amount will be settled by Paypal at the time the order is placed. If items are removed from the order, we will refund the Paypal account for the total credit due.

OTHER CONDITIONS OF SALE
Ship and Backorder
Our default shipping option will allow us to ship all in stock products to you immediately from the nearest geographic warehouse with inventory and backorder any items which are not in stock. The items that did not ship will be sent from the next closest warehouse with inventory. If we do not have any inventory of the product, we will ship the parts as soon as any warehouse receives stock from our suppliers.
Hold and Ship Complete
This shipping option instructs us to hold your entire order until all items are in stock. You authorize us to charge your credit card for the entire amount of the order to secure those parts for you in advance, even if the order cannot ship the same day due to backordered items. This will allow for all items on your order to ship at one time, but it can also cause indefinite delays in shipment if any items are not in stock and delivery from our suppliers is delayed. We do not recommend this option except for certain export orders or orders where the products not in stock are oversize or hazardous, which would require additional shipping charges if backordered and shipped later. If the only products missing are small and can be shipped by mail, we will backorder them and ship all in stock items immediately. Please request this in the Special Instructions box in the Shopping Cart if you prefer this option.
Certificate of Conformance and Form 8130 (Export)
Aviation Parts Executive Inc., provides you with its own Certificate of Conformance for our products at no charge. This is noted on every invoice. Factory certification and test reports are available on some items and 8130-3 Forms are available on FAA approved products. A cost of $50 per product on 8130 forms is charged to secure these forms. Please inquire at time of order if test reports/8130 Forms are available for the items you are ordering. If available, the forms must be requested at time of order and in some cases the product must be special-ordered from the factory with the forms. These forms cannot be furnished after you receive the product. Anticipate shipping delays if 8130 Forms are requested. If you require these forms, you can request that the salesperson add them to your order. If you are ordering online, you can check off which form you require for each item in your cart. Due to delays and costs involved in furnishing these forms, we strongly suggest that you check to see if the Aviation Parts Executive Inc., Certificate of Conformance will be acceptable in lieu of Form 8130.
Certain orders for cut materials (i.e. wood, metal, etc.) may incur an additional cutting charge. Nearly all our cut material orders are shipped with no additional charges, however, should your order warrant a cutting charge, you will be contacted with an explanation and request for approval. If approved, we will proceed with the order and if it is not approved we will provide alternative solutions.
ADDING ON TO AN ORDER
In order to ensure efficient, accurate processing of orders in the warehouse, we have several restrictions for adding on to placed orders. The restrictions include:
- Orders that have “Packed” or “Invoiced” status
- Orders qualifying for free shipping
- Orders placed by PayPal
- Orders containing special order items
We have also implemented a 11:00 am local time cutoff for add-ons at the respective origin warehouse on the day the order is shipping. If the order has an “open” status and it is before the 1:00 pm cutoff, you can add on to it using the website or by calling our Customer Service department. If we cannot add products to the open order due to the restrictions listed above, we will be glad to take a new order for the additional products.
WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR ORDER
Upon receipt, the package should be opened promptly and material checked against the packing slip enclosed. Items out-of-stock at time of shipment will be marked as back-ordered to follow.’ These items will not be charged on the invoice enclosed with the package and will be forwarded as soon as delivery is received from our suppliers. The backordered items will not be charged until shipped. About 90% of the items featured in our catalog are carried in stock. Special items of hardware, bearings, unusual fittings and slow moving items are special ordered as required. However, even with the large inventory we carry, it is not uncommon to come up short on some items. If an item is missing and not marked backordered, please advise us immediately.
Backorder are shipped from the warehouse that receives stock first. Although we make every effort to ship all orders complete, it is often necessary to backorder one or more items if we are out of stock. When the partial order is shipped and invoiced, you are not charged for the backordered item(s) until these items are shipped. You are billed only for what is shipped. A backorder is created and shipped as soon as the items arrive. The backorder is then invoiced and any overpayment from the first invoice is applied to it. If you do not wish to have any items backordered, or wish to cancel an existing backorder, just let us know. We will do so immediately if the backorder has not been shipped. We are working continuously to keep all items in stock to preclude backorders. If a backorder is necessary, we do appreciate your patience.

SPECIAL ORDER ITEMS
Over the years, one of the services that our company offers that seems to be most appreciated by our customers is our willingness to research and provide quotations for special items. Other supply firms tend to discourage special requests due to the time and effort it takes to find these items, and request that customers order catalog items only. We have always taken a different approach and welcome requests for non-catalog items. Call or write and provide as much information as possible including make, model, serial number of aircraft and exact part number or product you need, plus your credit card number. Within 24 hours if possible, we will advise you of the price and delivery time on the item, at which time you can place your order if acceptable. Once an order is placed for a special order item, it cannot be cancelled or returned and must be paid in advance. If we cannot drop ship your special order, then freight charges from the factory to our warehouse will be added to your invoice. Our goal is to provide you with everything you need – if you do not find it in this catalog, let us know and we’ll find it for you!
