Is there anything that can't be ordered over the Internet?

If calling up pizza via the computer is just too easy, then why not shop for aircraft parts?

Aviall of Dallas, Texas, is launching a parts order entry system on its home page.

The system gives customers general aviation, regional and commercial airline aircraft, whenever they want and from wherever they are in the world.

"With the Aviall AIRNET order entry system, a customer's computer mouse is like an access key to Aviall's extensive inventory," says Aviall's director of sales for Europe, Latin America and Australia, Cris Gross. He is demonstrating the new service at his company's exhibit stand.

Meanwhile, another Internet service should help to stem the estimated $500 million annual trade in stolen aircraft parts. Memphis, Tennessee-based Inventory Locator Service (ILS) is providing free access, via the Internet, to its database of stolen aircraft parts information.

The database contains nearly 7,000 items and can be searched using part and serial numbers.

By accessing this information, customers can avoid inadvertently buying or selling aircraft parts that have been reported stolen.
