Assessing the Effectiveness of an EASA Compliant Aircraft Maintenance Program (AMP) – 2 Days


Maintenance has come a long way since the early days of commercial aviation when maintenance programs owed more to the perception of the maintenance needs, as opposed to the analysed and justified needs.

Our mission is to share that the role of Maintenance Planning has the potential to provide significant savings whilst maintaining a fully compliant and safety focused maintenance management system.

From the regulatory perspective it is of primary importance to deliver effective oversight of aircraft operators’ maintenance programmes. Together with a viable assessment of the management of the continuing airworthiness process

The course is focused on the specific needs of persons (Competent Authority & Industry) who are required to audit the AMP process. The training is delivered in a stimulating and dynamic environment, with a heavy focus on the practical aspects of an effective and efficient Maintenance Planning Process.
