Aircraft operators must control costs in order to be competitive in today’s aviation industry. Maintaining cost control often requires operators to retain minimum staffing levels throughout their organization. In some cases, this minimum staffing level may result in less than desired expertise in the operator’s technical department. The technical department may have limited experience in the operation and maintenance requirements for the JT8D engine. In this case, it is often advantageous to retain the assistance of a reliable consultant who is experienced and knowledgeable in JT8D procurement and maintenance. Utilizing the engine shop selected to perform the engine repair or engine refurbishment to provide technical assistance for planning the engine shop visit can be expensive and may not produce an engine that meets your budgetary and operational requirements.
In addition to maintaining cost control, operators must comply with mandatory regulatory requirements in all aspects of their operations. Failure to do so can be costly and may endanger the Operating Certificate, which is mandatory for continued airline operations. Determining the work to be accomplished, parts to be procured, ADs to be accomplished, and appropriate maintenance procedures carried out during the shop visit requires extensive knowledge which can only be obtained through hands-on experience.
Unplanned or unnecessary engine removals can also be costly and inconvenient for both the operator and the passenger.
