What is Component Maintenance?
Definition and Scope
Component maintenance refers to the specialized care, inspection, repair, and overhaul of individual parts and subsystems of an aircraft. Unlike general maintenance, which may address the overall condition of the aircraft, component maintenance focuses on specific elements, such as avionics, hydraulics, engines, landing gear, and more.
Given the complexity and integration of modern aircraft systems, each component plays a vital role in the overall functionality and safety of the aircraft. Ensuring that each part is in optimal condition is crucial for reliable operation and compliance with regulatory standards.
