Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long does it take for online approval orders to be completed?
A: Generally our online orders are turned around within 24 hours. If special cirumstances exist with the installation, this period may be longer.

Q: What payment options do I have when placing an order online?
A: Online order payments may be made by American Express, Mastercard, Visa or Net–30 invoice.

Q: What about installations requiring a Damage Tollerance Assessment (DTA) and Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA)?
A: All our antenna doubler designs are fatigue and damage tollerant. If your aircraft is subject to one or more special conditions and a damage tollerance report / instructions for continued airworthiness are required, these options will be made available to you in the ordering process.

Q: Can I place an order for aircraft registered under an authority other than the FAA?
A: Absolutely! Our system includes current registrar records for a number of international registries. If the registry you require is not in our list, please give us a call and we'll see what we can do to include it.

Q: How much will it cost me to order my FAA approval online?
A: Standard antenna installations are $595. ELT antenna installations are $695, as are high profile antennas. Installations requiring double designs to match an existing hole pattern are also $695. (Prices subject to change.)

Q: Can the data package and approval for one aircraft be used on another aircraft of the same type?
A: This is really up to your FSDO, but our documentation references the specific aircraft make, model and serial number. The same installation for the next aircraft is the same price as the first.

Q: I've lost the paperwork for a previous job. Is there a way I can access this data now?
A: You bet there is! We keep a record of every project we complete and make these records available to our users via "My STRONG Aero". To access this area, you will need your e-mail address and the password for your account. If you've lost your password, you can have it sent to you via e-mail.

Q: Where can I find authoritative FAA data?
A: The FAA website is your best source. Try the FAA Special Conditions Database, FAA Type Certificate Datasheets (TCDS) or Current list of FAA FARS
