Air Niugini Looking To Save Millions As The Airline Company Looks to In-house Heavy Maintenance For Aircrafts

Air Niugini heavy maintenance team are to finish the first heavy maintenance on two aircraft at the airline’s hanger in Port Moresby by October this years.

A Fokker 70 and Fokker 100 are currently undergoing “C” check maintenance, Air Niugini’s Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer in charge of Heavy Maintenance, Richard Woolcock said it was a great leap of faith to move from proven maintenance providers to a novice team of mostly national engineers with the understanding that they will provide the same standard, if not a better product, at the end of the work.

A ‘C’ checks is the most in-depth type of maintenance that can be carried out on an aircraft.

Basically, engineers take off every part fitted to the aircraft, inspect both the removed parts and when the aircraft leaves the hangar at the end of its check, engineers ensure it near to “As New” as possible so that the aircraft can keep flying and passenger safety is guaranteed.
