The LaMia Flight 2933, famously known as the Chapecoense plane crash, is the most recent example of why airlines need to pay closer attention in maintaining airplanes. For a craft to not have fuel that caused the engine to “go” is a major example of oversight. The incident cost 70 lives, including most members of a beloved soccer team from Brazil.
This is the reality of mistakes in flying planes, where a single mistake can cause these kinds of incidents. Flying is generally safer than driving; a fact, not a punchline. But, with all the incidents in the past few years, reason went out the window long ago for airline customers.
For airport managers, safety is non-negotiable. The TSA isn’t the first line of security. The first, and probably most important, measure of security is ensuring that the craft is ready for flight.
Employing All the Tools
On one side, hiring the most qualified aircraft mechanics and having a clear line of supply of craft parts establishes your most important credentials for an airplane maintenance center. On the other, managing it is a different matter. Parts mean billing, mechanics mean labor tracking and other external services; these are a few elements that you can perform with a consolidated solution, something that My Flight Solutions provide.
You will also have to meet new standards and new equipment that will help you repair modern aircraft. In this field, you must make the right investment to avoid spending repeatedly to cover for repair needs.
All your efforts to ensure that your maintenance work is at the top of its game will pay off massively. Not only will you enhance your reputation, which is a gold mine in airline operation, but they will be loyal as well. Everything in this industry is for the long haul, and establishing your name now will ensure your future.
For Local Operations: Up Your Game
The dwindling number of maintenance centers in America is troubling, but its effect is even more problematic. This means that non-FAA authorized mechanics are doing diagnostics for some of the biggest airplanes. As a result, mechanics left in the country have to be better. It’s not a guarantee that the entire industry will experience a boom, but at least, your business will.
Safety is always a priority, and in aircraft matters, there’s no wiggle room. Ensure it or don’t fly, it’s that simple.
