Income Statement - Maintenance
« on: November 15, 2015, 12:10:52 PM »
It would be good if the income statement would separate line maintenance (A and B Checks) to heavy maintenance (C and D Checks) so that I would get a good idea of how much I'm spending a week on the two types of maintenance.

Looks like most people are in agreement. Sound like a new idea for the future of AWS sami?

No plans to change the system for now.

So, from a big picture perspective, that's a bit of a waste of time. You're so wildly profitable in the game that maintenance costs really aren't a big deal. Generally, if your planes are under 24 years old, then check costs tend to increase as capital cost (ownership and/or lease costs) decrease and they more or less balance each other out. Once you get past the 24 year mark, costs start increasing on a logarithmic basis and will bankrupt you pretty quick.

That being said, as an operator of small regional airlines, I've never found much of a reason to dig deeper into the MX numbers as they really aren't material to the operation of an airline. Therefore, breaking them out will just give others more confusion and delay about their meaning...

I'd like to see this if the maintenance costs are calculated on a flight hours / cycles basis, and not purely on age of the aircraft. In the real world an aircraft can still be worth operating at 35 or 40 years old, flying it when needed. It could still have many cycles or flight hours left in it. Then a more detailed view of the maintenance costs would be a nice addition.
