Latest Trends and Technologies in Commercial Aircraft Maintenance

Aircraft maintenance is an important process to ensure that an aircraft performs all its intended functions successfully. A typical process generally consists of a combination of corrective and preventive actions including precautionary actions in order to confirm that there are no unidentified chance failures. Apart from unscheduled actions and scheduled or preventive actions to anticipate and prevent failures, the process also includes inspection tasks for monitoring the progress of wear out processes.

Innovative Trends in Commercial Aircraft Maintenance and Repair

Constant developments along with innovative trends in the field of aircraft maintenance and repair are responsible for the rapid rise in demand for aircraft maintenance systems on global scale. For example, emergence of the Augmented Reality (AR) technology is accelerating the maintenance training activities. In a recent development, TAE Aerospace, one of the leading Maintenance, Repair, and Operations (MRO) companies, recently launched a new wearable virtual assistance system enabled with the AR technology.

The technology behind the new AR-integrated device called Fountx was developed by an Australian research firm called the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), which also introduced Wi-Fi to the world. The new wearable system provides experts and professionals the ability to remotely assist their technician teams in real-time. The developers say that this device can effectively improve the productivity and capability of maintenance professionals. It also helps decrease the maintenance downtime while boosting the quality and accuracy allowing experts to perform the required tasks quickly and safely.

Market Overview

The worldwide commercial aircraft maintenance market is predicted to witness a substantial development during the forecast period (from 2017 to 2022); finds a study available on Radiant Insights, Inc. Rapid expansion of the market is attributed to the factors such as entry of new airline services and growing aircraft fleet of many prominent airline service providers. Furthermore, increased spending capacity of consumers, due to high disposable income, and rising number of low-cost carriers (LCCs) has resulted in an augmented demand and preference for air travel. This is also likely to boost the market growth in near future.

Beijing Andawell BGA Engineering and Technology Co., Ltd.; Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance; Zhejiang SinusIridum General Aviation Engineering Technology Co., Ltd.; and Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Co. Ltd. are the key service providers in the global market.
