IF YOU’RE NOT USING MAINTENANCE CHECK KITS YOU’RE MISSING OUT ON A HUGE OPPORTUNITY. AN OPPORTUNITY TO SAVE TIME, MONEY, AND EVEN YOUR SANITY.
But it's quite possible you lost that a long time ago.
Whatever it is, let me show you how to use maintenance check kits to your advantage.
Let’s start with…
Maintenance kits. Your best-kept secret. They were put on this earth for one reason…
To help you keep your sanity.
But you may be all too familiar with this approach instead...
We had 3 c-checks needing completion. It was a rush. A mad dash to crazy land (remember what I said about sanity?).
Us, our client, and everyone in between were in a mass scramble to have the parts they needed, where they needed them.
Everything was last minute. And by everything...I mean everything.
The not so funny part is, 50% of the rush would have been resolved with a little pre-planning and a pre-draw kit.
Next time you have a maintenance project, choose one of these kits and make your aviation life easier.
You owe it to yourself to keep your sanity!
Do you want things to be easier? Of course, you do. Don't we all.
After a recent conversation with a purchasing professional from Air Arabia, she stated it beautifully...
"We live and work in the most complex supply chain in the world."
And that sums it up.
We all get so caught up in the day that we forget to take a step back. To step back and look at the position and area we work in. To work on ways to eliminate redundancy and increase efficiency.
It's that simple.
In a few day's your bird will hit the hangar and begin its c-check.
You feel your heartbeat beginning to race. Thump-thump. Thump-thump-thump. Thump-thump.
Your blood pressure is rising. You have no idea of what issues are going to arise or how you'll resolve them.
For now, you just have to wait.
Your aircraft is scheduled for 45 days of c-check maintenance glory. "Whatever," you think. You want it done as soon as possible.
But in the back of your head, you think, "what if we didn't plan well enough."
Have you ever tried juggling multiple things at once?
You secretly whisper yes while you think of the dreadful memories.
The good news is you're not alone.
I worked with an aircraft maintenance customer who seemed to be living large under the umbrella of a large commercial airline.
With various Phds on staff to fine tune their forecasting methods, things seemed under control, until...
Budgets began tightening.
