The PAL-V Liberty needs, like any other vehicle, maintenance. As it is an aircraft, preventive maintenance is done. To give you the ultimate peace of mind, this maintenance is done by specialized aviation mechanics who know how to work with such a unique vehicle.

The engine from Rotax is a trusted part of the vehicle and is one of the most used engines in the general aviation world. Therefore, workshops around the world are familiar with the maintenance needed on these parts. Of course, PAL-V will make sure that not only the purchase in your country is organized, but also the flight schools and maintenance are arranged before your delivery takes place.
