Transcript and Presenter's Notes

Title: Aircraft Maintenance

Aircraft Maintenance
  • Aircraft Handling follows on from knowledge
    learnt in Airmanship
  • It builds on this and prepares you for your first
    solo flight!

  • Aircraft Handling includes
  • Aircraft Maintenance
  • Ground Handling
  • Prep for Flight
  • General Flying
  • Aeros Formation flying
  • Emergency procedures

Aircraft Maintenance
  • The RAFs maintenance organisation supports more
    than the aircrafts airframe
  • They also support
  • Avionics systems
  • Aircraft escape systems
  • Survival equipment
  • Weapons
  • Flight simulators
  • Synthetic trainers
  • SAM systems
  • Comms control systems
  • Motor transport
  • The training testing equipment

Maintenance Policy
  • The RAFs maintenance policy balances
    preventative and corrective maintenance.
  • It is broken into two areas
  • Operational Objectives
  • Maintenance Objectives

Maintenance Policy
  • Operational Objectives
  • To generate the aircraft equipment to counter
    surprise attack
  • To support intensive flying over a sustained
    period in NBC or other hostile environments
  • To generate aircraft and equipment required for
    NATO national commitments
  • To satisfy such contingency plans as may be
    ordered by a higher authority
  • The efficient provision of serviceable aircraft
    and equipment needed for peace time tasks

Maintenance Policy
  • Maintenance Objectives
  • Minimise costs (manpower resources)
  • Minimise faults that would be hazardous to an
    aircraft or affect its operational capabilities,
    or would require expensive repair
  • Find ever-better ways of improving reliability
    and maintainability

Maintenances Types
  • Preventative
  • Preventative maintenance reduces the probability
    of failures they attempt to stop faults
  • Servicing (or flight servicing)
  • Scheduled Maintenance
  • Condition based Maintenance
  • Out of phase maintenance.

Maintenances Types
  • Corrective Maintenance
  • Corrective maintenance happens when a fault
    occurs makes the aircraft serviceable again
  • Corrective maintenance is not scheduled or
    planned for as the faults can occur at random

Maintenances Types
  • Contingency maintenance
  • This occurs in operational theatres. It reduces
    the amount of scheduled condition based
    maintenance in favour of relying on corrective
    maintenance which varies between aircraft

Form 700
  • The F700 is actually a series of forms
  • 701 information on permitted fuels, oils, basic
    weight, typre pressures, alignment records,
    aircraft dimensions
  • 703 onboard software log where an aircraft
    has an onboard software and computers the 703
    details this include software updates, patches,
    revisions, versions.
  • 705 Flight Serving Fuel Certificates
    includes the previous Aircraft Captains signature
    which records any faults or problems, Chief Techs
    signature to say repairs have been made, and new
    Captains signature to say the aircraft is fit to
  • 725 Flying Log and Fatigue Data Sheet details
    of each flight including fatigue meter readings
    wear present.
  • 725A Details of Air-Air Refuelling (AAR).

Maintenance Data System
  • The details of the MOD 700 are also recorded on
    the Maintenance Data System (MDS). The computer
    has 6 major data elements, each concentrates on a
    particular aspect of data
  • Faults
  • Defects
  • Modifications
  • Manpower utilisations
  • Task achievement
  • Technical Costs Logistics
  • All these are available to all RAF Stations,
    Groups Commands via the MOD Intranet or floppy
    disk. This enables performance monitoring life
    span predictions for aircraft.
