EASA Part M Maintenance Planning Fundamentals – 5 Days

INTRODUCTION 

The Maintenance Planning Function is the responsibility of the Operator and Effective Maintenance Planning can contribute significantly to achieving optimisation within the organization. This training develops an understanding regarding the opportunities to deliver real savings.

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. In addition, the role of the regulator was also minimal, and in part developed as a result of events, incidents and accidents.

During the end of the first half of the 20th century regulations began to strengthen and the aircraft manufacturer was seen as the appropriate source of the maintenance program development. The early attempts at effective maintenance (in the 1960’s) saw time limits developed which resulted in aircraft being progressively dismantled, in what became known as Hard Time primary maintenance.

The aircraft maintenance program (AMP) identifies the maintenance tasks to be performed on an aircraft, in order to maintain its airworthiness. The AMP is the primary tool for the effective control of the aircraft therefore it must be developed with full consideration of both the safety and economic viability.

This intensive 5 Day course considers best practice processes for accomplishing the various tasks which together make up the challenging role of Maintenance Planning, It is specifically designed for people with a direct involvement in Part M Subpart C Planning functions whether in a Management Supervisory or Administrative role.
