Global Leader in Aircraft Maintenance Repair & Overhaul Parts and Supplies

The pivotal role of continuously operational aircraft is critical, considering the profound financial implications that occur when planes are grounded for maintenance. Such groundings diminish airline revenue, obstruct cargo carriers' availability, impair charter services for private jets, and restrain individual owners from utilizing their aircraft.

As a distinguished partner, we excel in supplying premium parts for Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) requirements. Our team is celebrated for quick quote responses and dependable delivery of crucial components, ensuring aircraft return to service with unparalleled precision and speed.

The FAA mandates various inspections to assure aircraft safety and airworthiness, classified as A, B, C, and D checks for commercial airliners, each with distinct frequencies and focuses, ranging from minor inspections and functionality checks to comprehensive overhauls that can take up to several months.

These inspections are called A, B, C, and D checks for commercial airliners.

A Check:

   - Typically, every 400-600 flight hours or 200-300 flight cycles.

   - This check mainly focuses on fluids, minor inspections, and functionality checks. 

B Check:

   - Generally every 6-8 months.

   - Slightly more in-depth than the A Check, the B Check involves detailed inspections of specific components.

C Check:

   - Typically, every 20-24 months or a specific number of flight hours, usually around 4,000-6,000.

   - A much more detailed and comprehensive inspection that involves extensive examination of individual components. 

D Check:

   - Generally every 6-10 years.

   - The most exhaustive and comprehensive check, often called a "heavy maintenance visit." It involves a complete overhaul of the aircraft, requiring extensive labor and can take up to 2 months to complete.

Other Checks and Inspections:

Daily Checks: 

Performed to ensure the immediate airworthiness of the aircraft.

Cycle-Limited Parts Inspection:

Certain components have a predetermined number of cycles they can complete before requiring inspection or replacement.

Small Aircraft Inspections: 

Inspections for smaller general aviation aircraft are categorized as follows:

Annual Inspections: 

Mandatory every 12 calendar months for all registered aircraft.

100-Hour Inspections:

Mandatory for aircraft carrying any person for hire.

Progressive Inspection Program: 

Some operators employ a progressive inspection program to continuously monitor the aircraft's condition, dividing annual inspections into smaller, more frequent ones.

Special Inspections: 

Additional special inspections are carried out based on the aircraft's usage, environment, and specific components. These inspections specifically target areas prone to corrosion, fatigue, and other related issues.
