Connecting the Aging Aircraft: Issues and Opportunities

  • Wednesday, 04/10/2019: 10:30 AM - 11:15 AM
  • Session Number:  113


        This session takes an all-encompassing look at the many issues and opportunities to be found in the aging aircraft market. As aircraft stay in the fleet longer, the increased need for maintenance of mature fleets creates many opportunities for MROs. How are independent MROs competing with OEMs in this market? What needs to be considered when retrofitting older aircraft with new technology to enable parts monitoring and predictive maintenance? What are the certification challenges of these modifications? How long do they need to stay in service for these upgrades to pay off?
