The 145 has launched a truly unique inventory system, one that's unlike any other inventory system used in the aviation community today. It's built on a reverse auction platform and incorporates many of the features we've grown accustomed to as consumers when we make travel purchases, consumer goods purchases, etc. We introduced the system to over 100 aviation professionals the last week of June 2017 and received rave reviews, but more importantly we received excellent feedback about how to improve the system.

The new inventory system is available to as many sellers of parts as want to participate, HOWEVER, please note that for the first 30 days only six companies have been given access rights to use the system for buying parts. We're doing this to help the sellers become familiar with the system before we open it up to the masses.
