Private jet maintenance is required to ensure the safe and reliable functioning of an aircraft during flight. For whole aircraft owners, aircraft maintenance typically falls on the owner to coordinate. Choosing the right company for maintenance is essential to the performance, longevity, safety, availability, and value of the aircraft. Our maintenance team provides full-service aircraft care, including routine inspections, repairs, avionics installation, and more.
No aircraft is exempt from maintenance. With regular usage, scheduled and unscheduled maintenance will occur. Think of your car, for instance. All vehicles must receive routine oil changes, but sometimes something unexpected occurs. Your battery may die, or a brake pad may wear out. Just like with your car, your aircraft has maintenance requirements. Learn more about frequently asked aircraft maintenance questions and how Airshare can help keep your aircraft safe and in the air.
Why does a private jet need maintenance?
All aircraft, private or commercial, require routine maintenance inspections to ensure they are safe to operate and that all systems are in good working order. Aircraft maintenance requirements vary based on manufacturer and type. Inspections are performed to address possible failures before they become an issue.
How often do private jets need maintenance?
Private aircraft require frequent maintenance to offer a safe flying experience. Scheduled and unscheduled maintenance are both common in aircraft maintenance. There are a variety of calendar and hourly inspections usually set up on 12-month intervals and or 200, 400, 600, or 800-hour intervals. Typically, the longer the interval, the more in-depth inspection. In addition, the more frequently an aircraft is flown, the more often it requires maintenance inspections. Unscheduled maintenance occurs when a component of the aircraft malfunctions. As referred to by its name, unscheduled maintenance is unforeseen and must be addressed prior to the next flight.
What factors can affect how often jets need to receive maintenance?
Private jets contain thousands of individual components. The two biggest factors impacting maintenance are aircraft age and flight hours. For each aircraft type, calendar and hourly maintenance intervals are set by the manufacturer. For the hourly inspections, the more the aircraft is flown, the more often the maintenance inspections must be completed. Flight hours create expected wear and tear on an aircraft and engine components, thus requiring more frequent maintenance.
