The Importance of Aircraft Maintenance

Airports World Company | Why Scheduled Maintenance is a Must

Aircraft maintenance is one of the most important activities that aircraft airlines and owners should maintain and never underestimate. This is a set of activities that includes the inspection, reformation and repair of an aircraft, not only for large planes but for smaller aircraft as well. The rules in aircraft manuals set the standard for maintaining your aircraft in order to uphold compliance. No airline or company is exempt when it comes to this. There are different airworthiness authorities in the world whose job is to make sure that every owner is doing his part in maintaining the safety and good condition of his aircraft.


Why Aircraft Maintenance is Important

Aircraft maintenance is highly regulated in every part of the world due to various reasons, including but not limited to:

  • Avoiding lost flights because of failure. 

If you want to make sure that everything is in its perfect condition, schedule regular aircraft maintenance and replacement of damaged parts in accordance with aircraft performance manuals from the relevant manufacturers.

  • Maintaining good performance. 

Regular maintenance will ensure that the aircraft is serviceable for the time it flies. Operational checks before every flight will make sure that failure does not occur before any trip.

  • Ensuring passenger safety.

Passenger safety is the priority of any airline, and through regular maintenance and checks, we will assure that the travel of those passengers will be undertaken in the safest and smoothest way possible.

  • Extending the life of the aircraft. 

Regular maintenance will extend aircraft life and ensure that aircraft will perform safely for the expected period of time.


In order to effectively take preventative measures, aircraft should undergo different levels of inspection through an aircraft maintenance schedule.

One should follow maintenance programs as detailed in aircraft manuals for all types of aircraft (fixed-wing or rotor). However, all types of aircraft will have one standard maintenance procedure, which you should carry out before every flight.


Maintenance Checks and Scheduling Tasks

Airline companies should have a qualified technical team to carry out this task. This team’s duty includes ensuring the on-time delivery of all checks and scheduled tasks. This also requires their full compliance with local authority airworthiness rules and regulations.
