As part of BAE SYSTEMS continuing support for its various aircraft types, we provide a full Maintenance Programmes Development and reliability assessment Programme dedicated to reducing the Maintenance costs of flying our aircraft and therefore maximizing the revenue potential for our customers.
The Maintenance Programmes Team develops Maintenance Programmes, for all BAE SYSTEMS aircraft types. The programmes for the BAe 146/AVRO RJ, BAe ATP and Jetstream 41 aircraft were developed using Air Transport Association (ATA) Maintenance Steering Group (MSG-3) analysis. This process resulted in a UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) controlled Maintenance Review Board Report (MRBR) document, for each aircraft type. The MRBR lists the minimum maintenance required, for airline operation as approved by the Maintenance Review Board.
BAE SYSTEMS produces a Maintenance Planning Document (MPD), for each of the above aircraft types. Which contains all the MRBR tasks, plus Certification Maintenance (CMR) tasks and Airworthiness Limitations (from the Aircraft Maintenance Manual, Chapter 5). Its purpose is to assist aircraft operators in compiling their own Maintenance Programmes (for approval by their Local Airworthiness Authority). The MPD may also contain Optional Maintenance tasks recommended by the manufacturer or from other sources (e.g. Airworthiness Notices).
The Programmes, for the HS.748 and Jetstream 31 and 32 aircraft type, have been developed from Design and engineering recommendations and are contained in a manufacturers �Recommended Maintenance Schedule�. The Structural integrity for these groups of aircraft types are maintained by inspections contained in a Corrosion Prevention and Control Programme (CPCP) (Jetstream & HS.748) and a Supplemental Structural Inspection Document (SSID) (for HS.748).
