We offer 3 flat rate levels depending on your specific needs:

$229 SYMPTOMATIC  The fastest and most common method we employ when worn or defective parts need replacing. Includes a complete alignment.

$289 MAJOR REPAIR   Very few units need extra care and/or parts, or have multiple problems. We always call before committing to an expensive repair.

We also offer an economical VFR 24 month recertification service:

$135 VFR RECERT  For working units only.  This service includes an alignment plus the FAR 91.413(a) logbook entry.

$35 VFR ADD-ON  For nonworking units in need of repair or alignment.  We add $35 to your repair invoice and include the log entry with your repaired transponder.

The first paragraph of FAR 43 APX F (Transponder testing standards) states that the tests required by FAR 91.413 may be performed as either a ramp or a bench test. We perform the inspection while we align your transponder and bill an additional $35.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  FAR 91.413 requires all transponders operated in USA airspace be recertified every 24 months. This is an optional service and may not be required if your aircraft is currently IFR certified, or already meets FAR 91.413 requirements. Valid only for the aircraft you identify as long as there are no changes to the transponder systems wiring or other modifications while the transponder is removed for this service and/or repair.


Open 30 day credit is extended to all customers as long as you sign the SERVICE REQUEST form you will attach to your transponder (instructions will follow).

Please follow our shipping advice PACKING & SHIPPING.  Details regarding our return shipping policy are also found there.

If you would like the FAR 91.413 24 month transponder certification log entry please include your aircraft make and model. We will add an additional $35 to your invoice unless you have selected the VFR recert service for working transponders that are fully functional
