I just came from an interesting MRO Europe Conference session on transferring aircraft under EASA legislation. Liam Sisk, head of engineering services at Parc Aviation
, outlined the different objectives operators and lessors typically have, and said MROs often get caught in the middle.
What can they do?
He advised several steps, including making sure MROs have EASA-compliant work packages, ensure the early availability of completed work packages for aircraft status updates, get the specific lease return conditions and communicate, communicate, communicate with your customer.
