MRO stock photoAircraft operators are moving toward a new business model that requires maintenance work on items such as engines to be done under tighter turn times as opposed to a complete overhaul, a Kelly Aviation Center vice president has told Avionics Intelligence.

“We“™re seeing record numbers of backlogs in terms of Airbus and Boeing aircraft; the age of aircraft are much younger,” Amy Gowder, vice president of the Lockheed Martin-affiliated center, told the website.

Gowder added that maintenance, repair and overhaul service providers are being required to innovate and think about how to improve their postures as operators and lessors.

Marc-Andre Duranceau, vice president of aerostructures and aircraft service at L-3 Communications MAS, told Avionics Intelligence aircraft in-service costs represent 70 percent of overall costs.
