Understanding the engine, its stage in the program lifecycle, and your specific usage and operational environment will all affect decisions. Should you rebuild, lease or buy?

Engine overhauls are one of the largest single areas of ongoing costs for aviation operations – not simply the cost of the actual maintenance, but also in the down-time for aircraft. Minimising disruptions to both schedules and cash flows is important, but what is the best possible way to achieve this?

The key to achieving smooth operations is to establish a management plan to anticipate and prepare for overhauls, taking into account the full commercial implications of any technical decisions. Understanding the engine, its stage in the program lifecycle, and your specific usage and operational environment will all affect decisions. Should you rebuild, lease or buy?

We have designed plans for clients that determine the optimal decision, often using engine leasing to extend operational hours before major overhauls are required, and to keep aircraft in the air longer, while preserving business cash levels. Often simple strategies such as an efficient engine rotation schedule, properly implemented, can offer significant savings. How can we help you to better manage your engines?
