When it comes to aircraft maintenance, you’ve got lots of choices. For new aircraft, the decision can be pretty simple; it’s under warranty, so your most cost-effective choice likely is taking it to a factory-owned or factory-authorized facility.
But once out of warranty – or absent an hourly-cost-maintenance program – the “where-to-go” decision for service becomes a bit more complex.
In Homeward Bound, Bombardier’s VP OEM Parts and Services Chris Debergh details why bringing your aircraft back to the manufacturer’s facilities can be the logical choice for both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance. And how those maintenance decisions can have an impact on your aircraft’s future market value.
