Order Processing Times

Typical order processing time is 2 to 4 business days if all items are in stock.

Some points to consider:

  • Order processing time is IN ADDITION TO the shipping speed you select at checkout. Univair gives priority to orders using an expedited shipping method (i.e. overnight, 2-day or 3-day delivery) so your order will ship sooner than if you use Standard shipping.
  • "Business Days" defined: Univair is only open 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, therefore we do not process orders overnight or on weekends. We are also closed on the following 6 national holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. Depending on the volume of orders we receive, orders placed late in the week may not be processed until the following week.

Conditions that will extend processing time:

  • Build-To-Order Parts: Items that we build as they are ordered, such as airframes and wing kits, can take 4-6 weeks to manufacture. Product descriptions on our website will indicate which parts are build-to-order.
  • Out-of-Stock / Low Inventory: Products can usually be replenished in 10-14 business days, although certain products may take longer. This applies to products purchased from outside sources as well as those manufactured in-house at Univair.
  • Wood Crates: Shipments in wood crates may require 1-2 days additional processing time, as we build the crates in-house to fit the order.
  • 8130-3 Documentation: Orders requiring this paperwork or other necessary export documentation may also require additional processing time. Contact our sales department if you need a time frame.
