Used Yokes?

A Cygnet Aerospace Dual Yoke is completely new, inside and out. We do not assemble yokes from used or salvaged parts. Consider that a used yoke could be made up of highly worn components up to 50 years old with only a new paint job.

This is a flight system class II part and we do not feel comfortable using old, questionable parts. No dual yokes sold by Cygnet Aerospace are from a previously crashed or salvaged aircraft. Each yoke is stamped internally with a serial number for 100% traceability, making it easy to trace back to the original Cygnet Aerospace customer. This is not the case with Beech parts allowing stolen components to find their way back into the marketplace.

Beware that used aircraft parts can fall under the definition of unapproved parts (refer to Advisory Circular AC 21-29B). "Refurbished" and "reconditioned" are not FAA recognized terminology. If choosing a used part, you need to ask if this part is approved for installation on your aircraft per the type certification data sheet. Does the seller provide a maintenance release for repair and/or work performed?
