All Essco online transactions are handled with industry standard SSL encryption. After entering your credit card number into our order form, the information is encrypted (scrambled) before being transmitted, and then decoded once it gets to us.


We ship virtually anywhere in the world and use most major carriers.

We ship in-stock orders placed before 3pm EST/EDT on the day following receipt of the order. Please note that this applies only to UPS shipments to US addresses, and is based on UPS operating business days.   If we special order a manual for you, we'll provide you with an estimated time frame.

International Shipments are sent via U.S. Express Mail. Prices vary according to shipment weight. The average cost is approximately $30.00 for one manual and $8.00 for each additional manual. Shipments generally arrive within 3-6 business days, barring customs delays. Please note that we require your approval of shipping costs before we can process your order. We will contact you via email for confirmation of the final shipping costs. To avoid delays, please be sure to include a valid email address on the order form.


If your company has an account with Essco Aircraft, we are happy to ship against a purchase order.  We can also drop ship your order.
