It is important to understand what it takes to maintain aircraft as this will help you have a better appreciation for repair services for aircraft components. Although your helicopter or plane might help you travel around the way a car does, there is a lot more that goes into keeping it running well. In this video, you will learn about the maintenance of heavy Airbus planes so you can see just how involved the process is and how seriously repairs are taken.
The maintenance for such a large aircraft is intensive and long. Even the most minor scratch needs to be inspected carefully as it could be a sign of damage to structural integrity. Nothing is overlooked and all components of the aircraft must be thoroughly inspected. Planes must get checked every five years and renewed every ten years. In the latter, the entire plane gets taken part and every single screw is checked in order to allow a full inspection. The entire process will take five weeks. The workers are very thorough and nothing is missed.
