Polish maintenance company LOTAMS has completed a heavy maintenance check on a Boeing 767 aircraft. The check, completed on July 31, is the first check of the type carried out on an aircraft with 50,000 flight cycles.
LOTAMS worked on the aircraft for five months, completing almost 35,000 man-hours. The range of services included maintenance activities such as replacement of main landing gears and both engines, removal and repair of rudders and flaps, structural repairs, as well as complicated activities requiring specialist checking by non-destructive testing (NDT).
“We have successfully completed one of the most labour intensive maintenance that has ever taken place at LOTAMS,”: said said Marcin Klukowski – Base Maintenance Manager at LOTAMS. “The work carried out by our technical staff has extended the life of the B767 aircraft. We are the first base in the world to perform a full range of 50K FC-check.”
