Optimization of Business Aircraft Maintenance Philosophy - Fact or Fancy? 640094

With the growth of the number of privately owned and operated business aircraft fleets, it is essential that maximum safety practices and a working operating philosophy be clearly developed and practiced. This paper describes how a sound maintenance philosophy can be achieved. The factors considered in the development of such a policy include: machine load concept; total fleet operational parameters, which consist of excess demand, system capacity, maintenance level, convenience, and system utility; typical monthly analysis; and division of maintenance effort, which includes periodic inspection, engine changes, fleet modifications, line maintenance, shop work, and unpredicted requirements.
