Maintenance and Reliability Requirements for Future Generation Aircraft 650222
Today's traveling public demands a consistently high degree of:
Reliability of scheduled on-time performance
This has necessitated the close cooperation of the aircraft manufacturer and the airline operator in continuing efforts to achieve these three basic essentials to air transportation through ever increasing reliability of equipment.
This can in large measure be realized through:
Steady improvement in airframe, engine and component integrity through design research and production quality control by the respective manufacturer.
Easier access for components inspection through design of the aircraft.
Simplified methods of installation and/or removal.
Certain essential system duplication built in the aircraft.
Close collaboration on training mechanical personnel enabling them to cope with the sophistry of modern aircraft systems.
