COMPOSITES & ADVANCED MATERIALS

Examining MRO Trends in Advanced Material Repair

As fleets develop and more advanced material intensive aircraft come into service, what will be the impact on MRO demand and practices? What future maintenance strategies should be employed and will there be a difference in the division of maintenance tasks? Here we examine the impact of these new aircraft programs on the MRO industry and analyze the key changes and emerging trends. What will be the size, quantity and volume of advanced material repairs and how can MROs ensure they have the correct infrastructure in place to perform these repairs? How will new repair capabilities coexist with traditional methods? Will the OEMs provide sufficient data to allow proper management of new material repairs?

PROPULSION

Engine MRO Market Dynamics

While engine maintenance is predicted to remain the largest and fastest growing sector of the MRO business over the next decade, the market is growing increasingly competitive and more complex. Overcapacity has resulted in a wave of shop closures and may lead to a future mergers and consolidations. In addition, OEMs are taking a greater share of the engine maintenance business. What is the current state of the engine maintenance market and what is the near and long term forecast? What impact have recent trends had on the business strategies of engine MRO providers? Why are facilities still opening despite overcapacity in the marketplace? What is the impact of OEM penetration on insourcing and outsourcing practices by airlines? A look at industry trends and dynamics in the engine MRO world.

TECHNOLOGY

Maximizing on e-Enabled Aircraft Capabilities and Airplane Health Systems

Today’s smarter airplanes should be reaping the benefits of having their own maintenance information on board which is easily accessible by maintenance providers to share with operators. However, this trend is being hampered by inefficient airline and MRO IT systems created by a variety of factors.  How do you integrate these new aircraft capabilities to be interoperable with your current health monitoring systems and predictive measures for maximum benefit?

COMPOSITES & ADVANCED MATERIALS

Detection and Inspection in Composite Materials

One of the major challenges of composite materials is the ability to detect and inspect damage. Some of the recent incidents of damage to composite heavy aircraft raise questions over how repair schemes are going to be developed for these fleets and the impact this will have on the hangar and its workforce. In this session, we look at how the industry can address this challenge and enable their workforce to obtain the required expertise to perform these tasks. We also examine the potential of NDT technologies to assist in the inspection process and how these systems can be used effectively to provide reliable information for these advanced aircraft structures.

Best Practices in Heavy Maintenance

With over two thirds of the cost of heavy maintenance dedicated to labor, it has been attractive to set up low cost locations around the world where the work can be performed and consequently a broad and deep global marketplace established for heavy maintenance activities. In this session we will look at best practices for aircraft heavy maintenance across all commercial platforms. When is the best time and where are the best places to ferry aircraft for heavy maintenance? How do you balance the need for productivity and efficiency against keeping costs down? What are the cost benefits and potential drawbacks? What challenges is the industry facing relating to heavy maintenance and what issues are the regulators bringing to the table?

COMPOSITES & ADVANCED MATERIALS

Training and Certification – Searching for Standardization

With use of advanced materials in critical primary structures now on in-service aircraft, there is concern about damage to these aircraft, and the subsequent repairs. Repair technicians need specific training to handle these repairs as the techniques are fundamentally different to metallic structural repair methods. At present there is a wide variety of composite repair training and a lack of regulatory standards or certification for this type of training. What is the current situation with developing formal certification standards? What impact is the lack of standards having on quality and airworthiness? What are the thoughts of the various approval authorities on how the industry is developing and what is their role in setting benchmarks and certification requirements?

PROPULSION

Impact of the Surplus Market on Engine MRO

The early retirement and phasing out of entire engine fleets is leading to an increased supply and availability of surplus parts and engines. What impact is this having on the engine MRO market and what new business opportunities is this trend creating? What is the effect on the OEMs and their business model? What potential benefits are there for operators in terms of cost and maintenance planning? We look at the impact of the fast growing surplus parts sector on the content and price of materials in the marketplace and how it may shape the MRO environment going forward.
