CEFS Prices, Effective 4-Oct-2023


It is regrettable that wholesale prices for fuel, insurance, FAA-PMA approved parts and certified repairs in the Aviation Industry are up ~65% since Jan-2022. Additionally, supply chain issues are actively interfering with efficient business and decreasing availability of airworthy aircraft on demand.


The aircraft industry is based on oil, a fossil fuel. The Democrat led Policy War on Fossil Fuels is ultimately paid for ultimately by you, the Customer.


Sadly, to those of lesser means who want move up into the aviation world, it is regrettable that you are actively pushed down and eliminated from the pool of talent by the sick economics of the very people who lied to you about advancing your opportunities.


Elections have consequences


If you were listening carefully, the former President of the United States (2016-2020) warned us many times in policy and campaign speeches this narsissic hell-bent insane climate change cult would take over and make everyone miserable.


Remember, you the end Customer always pays the increased cost of bad policy, and everyone pays equally even though all are not of the same means to absorb increased cost.


The operating costs for CEFS went up and so this cost is regretfully passed onto you.
