Headset Trade-Up Program

MyPilotStore understands that your "starter headset" worked fine during training but it may be time to move up as you become a more experienced pilot. Sometimes you just want to upgrade to the newest headset technology. Whatever the case, we want to make it easier to move into your new headset. Our Aviation Headset Trade-In program provides you with a way to trade-in the headset you are using today towards the purchase of a new top-of-the-line headset from a variety of manufacturers.

Instructions for Trade-In

You can claim your trade-in credit one of two ways;

1. You can order your new Bose A20, Lightspeed Zulu3, Zulu.2, Lightspeed PFX, Sierra, David Clark One-X or Pro-X, or other headset valued at $500 or more now and pay regular price. At any time in the next 30 days you can package up your trade-in headset and ship it back using the Return Authorization number provided. Once received, a credit will be applied on your original order and a refund issued to your original payment method.

2. Or, you can ship back your trade-in headset first using the Return Authorization number provided. Once received, we will inspect and test the headset and contact you to order your new headset. The trade-in credit will be immediately applied to your new order.
