The September issue of MRO Management is now online


Whether you work for an airline or MRO, the September issue of MRO Management has all the latest industry analysis to keep you informed from the world of commercial aircraft maintenance.

More than a decade after it entered service, Airbus' flagship very large airliner – the A380 – is undergoing a review of maintenance procedures, with revised technical documents expeted to follow analysis of full-scale fatigue testing of the aircraft.


Meanwhile, the past year has been a defining year for the Airbus A220 programme, formerly the Bombardier C Series. We investigate the transition and what it means for MROs.


We also take a look at Pratt & Whitney Canada's PW100-family turboprops, which remain a popular and reliable choice of engine. PW&C offer in-house maintenance with its Advisory Services, Fleet Management Program and FAST solution.


Also in this issue:


Contained, comprehensive care
Just as the nacelle system is itself a complex part of an aircraft, its maintenance can prove challenging; however, OEMs and third-party MROs offer a range of support services.

Move on up
Six years after our previous visit, we take another look at Romanian MRO Aerostar's Bac?u facility, with a loyal customer base and full bookings for the 2018 season, and a new facility scheduled to open at Ia?i International Airport.

Cover up
In our annual paints and coatings feature, we talk to Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings, Adhetec, Mankiewicz, AkzoNobel and PPG Aerospace.

Finishing touch
As part of the Dubai-based MRO's 'one stop shop' approach, Etihad Airways Engineering has its own paint facility, with a dual use maintenance/paint hangar that can handle up to A340/777-size aircraft.
