C Check replacement

Started by qwert5479, January 27, 2016, 08:41:20 PM


Just wondering how you guys handle losing a plane to the C-Check for 15-20 days.  Is it a good idea to keep a spare around just to sub in while others are in maintenance?  Or is it cheaper just to let the route go dead for a couple weeks? 

I guess it depends a lot on how many planes we're talking about, and how many different types.  I was just curious about how you guys handle it.  It seems kind of unpractical to keep a plane around that's not used 50%+ of the time, but it can be a real blow to lose a $4M/week route for 20 days.


Basically you can just to let 'the route go dead'. Everyone has to perform C checks as well as pay those extra expenses. Not to mention, that Substitution is quite hard, because you have to have more or less similiar planes (at least the same size) and you have to change schedules every 10-15 days. That would be horrible ;)


lol yeah I tried it with the airline I had when I posted the question.  At the time I had 4 fleets (which is insane) and bought 4 substitute planes (more insane).  It was a mess....and very expensive.  It seems like such a long time ago, as I've learned so much since then.  It was only a few days ago though.


What about delaying c check by a few days? Is this advisable?

not really. Some people may advance them(especially when the 11/09/2001 strikes), but as soon as your company grows, it's not worth the hassle.
