By using this website, you agree to the following:
Order Processing Times
It can take 2 to 4 business days to process orders for which we have stock. Order processing time is IN ADDITION TO the shipping time you select at checkout.
We do not process orders on weekends or national holidays.
Items that are out of stock can take several days to a few weeks to replenish inventory.
Rush/AOG orders must be placed by noon Mountain Time to ship same day, and only applies to domestic U.S orders, for inventory in stock, and orders not requiring 8130-3 documentation.
Shipments in wood crates may require additional time, as we build the crates in-house per order.
Orders requiring FAA inspection for 8130-3 Airworthiness Documentation and necessary forms for export shipments may also require additional processing time.
The shipping fees shown on the checkout pages are ESTIMATES only and DO NOT represent what you will be charged. Your exact shipping charges may be MORE or LESS than the estimate.
Shipping costs vary depending on size, weight, number of packages, delivery address, method of shipment and any additional shipping/handling fees as outlined below in "Special Shipping and Handling Fees".
Univair reserves the right to adjust your final shipping charges (higher or lower) on your credit card/PayPal account at the time your order is shipped.
Special Shipping and Handling Fees
Univair reserves the right to add additional charges to your order for the following reasons:
- Oversize items
- Hazardous material fees
- Crating charges
- Multiple shipments
- Trucking fees imposed by freight carriers
- Export fees
- Airworthiness documentation costs
- Any additional costs or fees charged to Univair by a carrier will be passed along to the customer
We have attempted to indicate which items qualify for special shipping or handling fees in the product descriptions, and our website has been programmed to add fixed costs such as Oversize, Crating, and Hazmat Fees to the shipping quote you see during checkout. However, in the event that we have overlooked an item we reserve the right to make changes to your final shipping costs. Variable costs such as export fees and multiple packages cannot be determined until the order is packed and ready to ship, therefore these costs are NOT shown in your shipping quote during checkout.
For more detailed information regarding special shipping, crating and handling fees, please refer to our the Shipping Help articles in our Knowledge Base.

Out of Stock and Special Order Items
We do not guarantee that all items for sale through our website, catalog or advertising are in stock at all times. If you order an item and we do not have the stock to fulfill your order, you will be notified by a Univair salesperson. Our sales staff will provide expected delivery times based on the best information available to us.
Inventory we manufacture in-house can usually be replenished within 10-14 business days. Products we purchase from other companies have a similar timeframe for replenishment.
Built-to-order products, such as airframes and wings, can take 4-6 weeks to manufacture and prepare for shipping.
Dealer Accounts / Open Accounts
Payment by Open Account is available only to legitimate dealers/wholesalers who have an established account with Univair, and that account is in good standing. Invoices are payable Net 30.
Accounts must be approved by Univair prior to placing an order, otherwise dealer discounts will not be honored.
Prior to invoicing, your order will be adjusted to reflect your dealer discount (our website currently does not calculate dealer discounts).
To set up a dealer account with Univair, please contact us at 303-375-8882 and ask for our sales department.
Export Documentation and Fees
For all international orders, a 3% export documentation fee (minimum of $3.00) will be added for Documentation of Airworthiness (also known as form 8130-3) for civil aviation authorities in the customer's country. An additional $.75 per item will be assessed for some countries due to extra documentation required by the countries' aviation authority.
If 8130-3 paperwork is NOT required, you must make a note in the comment section during checkout, otherwise by default we will include it and add the appropriate charge to your order total.
Also note, if you cancel the 8130-3 paperwork when placing your order, Univair cannot send it separately after the order has shipped should you change your mind. The items will have to be returned to Univair at the customer's expense, at which time Univair will then issue the 8130-3 paperwork and reship the parts, again, at customer's expense.
