FAQS

About SavvyQA

Am I a good fit for SavvyQA?

Am I a good fit for SavvyQA?

Our SavvyQA consulting plan is designed for aircraft owners who prefer to manage their own maintenance and work directly with their shops, but would still like impartial, trusted, and expert advice when they need it.

All aircraft qualify for SavvyQA. This includes flying club, flight school, leaseback, Part 135, and experimental aircraft.

What is the difference between SavvyQA and SavvyMX?

What is the difference between SavvyQA and SavvyMX?

SavvyQA is a consulting plan rather than a maintenance-management plan. It is designed for aircraft owners who prefer to manage their maintenance and maintain relationships with their trusted shops and mechanics, but would still like impartial, trusted, and expert advice when they need it.  As a SavvyQA client:

  • We are here to help when you ask for help, but stay out of your hair when you don’t. With SavvyMx, we assume you want our help with everything – from maintaining maintenance records to scheduling your annual inspections.
  • We communicate strictly with you to provide you with our best guidance, recommendations, and opinions, including advice on what direction you should be giving to your shop or mechanic.  In contrast, for SavvyMx clients, we communicate directly to the shop/mechanic.
  • When you seek Savvy’s assistance, we assign your question to the most knowledgeable Savvy expert for guidance. SavvyMx clients connect with one dedicated account manager.
  • We are ready to review an estimate, invoice, or logbook entry at your request but do not do so unless you ask us to.

SavvyQA includes all the services of SavvyAnalysis plus unlimited consulting with our technical team. As a SavvyQA client, you also have access to our 24/7/365 rapid-response breakdown assistance service.

I am already a SavvyQA client, do I need to enroll in SavvyAnalysis?
No, you don’t. SavvyQA includes all the services of SavvyAnalysis plus unlimited consulting with Savvy’s team of A&P/IA technical experts.

Don’t need everything SavvyQA offers?

Utilize our on-demand advanced software diagnostics and request expert human analysis of your engine monitor data and borescope images for an unparalleled understanding of your plane’s health with SavvyAnalysis. With SavvyAnalysis, you forgo the unlimited consulting available with SavvyQA.

As a SavvyAnalysis client, you can upgrade to SavvyQA at any time, and will automatically receive pro-rata credit for any unused portion of your SavvyAnalysis subscription fee.

Looking for more?

Our flagship plan, SavvyMx, is full-service maintenance management. It provides you with a dedicated A&P/IA account manager who works directly with your shop and mechanics, so you never have to handle a maintenance event or aircraft prebuy alone.

SavvyMx includes all the services of SavvyAnalysis plus 24/7 breakdown assistance, at no additional cost.
