Our AMO (Approved Maintenance Organisation) team of top engineers and experienced technical staff have expertise in Bombardier, Leonardo and Pilatus products, amongst others, to ensure only the highest levels of safety, and we are equipped to manage any range of maintenance and compliance requirements. We are approved by the South African Civil Aviation Association to work on South African registered aircraft.
As part of Fireblade Aviation’s extensive Aircraft Maintenance offering, we accommodate and oversee aircraft line maintenance. This generally includes straightforward and routine in-service inspections and rectifications that don’t usually impact the aircraft’s flight schedule and working status. This typically includes pre-flight checks and minor, scheduled maintenance tasks such as fixing a blown light or faulty intercom system, as an example. This routine and minor maintenance service should not affect the aircraft’s daily working business.
AIRCRAFT ON GROUND
‘Aircraft on the Ground’ or AOG is a term indicating that a maintenance requirement is serious enough to prevent an aircraft from flying and specialised work is required to ensure the aircraft is fully compliant before it can take to the skies again. Fireblade Aviation’s world-class team of technicians and engineers are able to assist in every capacity as part of our turnkey aviation solution and will ensure any aircraft operating from our purpose-built facility is in top-notch shape.
Base maintenance can involve the temporary removal of an aircraft from service to allow for a longer period of maintenance and can often have to do with routine inspections to comply with a specific number of flying hours for the aircraft. This maintenance typically occurs in a hangar and includes more technically demanding checks and repairs such as work on the engine, interior refurbishment or replacing major components.
