The warranty period begins (unless otherwise noted) from the date of installation into the aircraft if, and only if, the following conditions are met:

  1. The unit and warranty claim, with all requested information properly supplied has been returned to any authorized KAES distributor. International Customers may utilize a KAES Authorized Service Center or a KAES Distributor. Units must be returned within 30 days of the product failure date. Units must not be disassembled and in their “as removed” condition.
  2. No substitute parts shall have been installed in the product without prior authorization of KAES, Montgomery, Alabama.
  3. The product shall not have been disassembled, repaired, or altered outside of KAES approved facilities unless express prior authorization was granted in writing.

  5. The duration of this Limited Warranty shall be for the unused portion of the original warranty period. Any replacement unit or repair shall not establish a new warranty period.

* Units will be activated automatically for a shelf stock warranty period and in all cases shall expire thirty-six (36) months from date of manufacture (see I.D. plate).
