Lithuanian MRO FL Technics has launched a consultancy service offering advice on MRO for engines, APUs and landing gear.
The MRO says the expansion into consulting is in anticipation of a “significant increase” in shop visits relating to engines and APUs on A320, 737 and CRJ200 aircraft over the next three years.
The services on offer will include AOG issue resolution and workscoping services for engine, APU and landing gear, both on wing and off wing.
FL Technics is also predicting an increase in spare lease assets up to 2018 and its consultancy is to offer advice on engine asset management and re-delivery.
“As the value of a spare engine asset may range anywhere between $0.5m and $6m, proper delivery/re-delivery process management and performance tracking during operations are especially sensitive processes,” said Deividas Jurkstas, FL Technics head of engines and components management department.
“Optimal workscope preparation, material management and cost control as well as maintenance reserves compensation and final invoice reviews before, during and after a shop visit may potentially cut the expenses by up to 50 per cent.”
