Maintenance is without a doubt one of the most important aspects of making sure that an air fleet is safe, secure, and ready for the challenges of a demanding schedule. This is true of radial engine maintenance as well as today’s turbine engine maintenance.
Since the early days of flight, there has been a mystique to maintenance — in that it represents a “relationship” between maintenance teams and aircraft, one in which they exercise their intuition as well as their technical skills.
That’s unlikely to change any time soon — being perceptive will always be helpful in aircraft maintenance. However, new tools will make an aircraft’s “signals” a lot easier to read.
Pratt & Whitney Is Making Turbine Engine Maintenance More Efficient Than Ever
What will aircraft maintenance look like in the future? The answer is shaping up: Proactive alerts from a wider range of aircraft components, responding to a wider range of conditions in the air, will make it easier to react to potential problems before they have a performance impact.
Like other technologies, aircraft engines are getting smarter — and odds are good that no other brand will be quite as “smart” as Pratt & Whitney. After all, Pratt & Whitney has already begun to revolutionize maintenance with innovative ways to clean out turbine engines.
In the future, a wider range of aircraft will “self-report” issues so that maintenance teams can act faster, resulting in less downtime and fewer shortfalls of needed components.
