When (And Why) your Aircraft Needs component MRO

Global passenger demand continues to rise. Load factors hit a record 81.9% in 2018. Meanwhile, the fleet age at the nation’s Top 5 airlines is now 12.4 years old. To meet the market’s evolving needs, Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) spending is predicted to eclipse $116 billion in the next decade, reflecting the need to get aircraft back in the air as quickly as possible.

A key aspect of any MRO strategy, component MRO involves sourcing and fitting mechanical, structural, electrical, and hydraulic components with quick turnarounds. High-quality systems component MRO and structural component MRO solutions are key to keeping aircraft at peak performance during service life—and extracting maximum value once they transition into retirement.
