Hi All,
Here's a reminder that CVM has lots of potential outside of commercial aviation. rolleyes.gif

Cracks found in Air National Guard C-130 wing parts prompt partial grounding of fleet

KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany — Nearly a quarter of the Air Force’s fleet of the C-130 Hercules is being grounded after “atypical” cracks were found on wing joints during maintenance, Air Mobility Command said.

AMC Commander Gen. Maryanne Miller ordered the temporary removal of 123 of 450 total force C-130s, effective immediately, the command announced late Wednesday.

The cracks on the lower center wing joint were discovered on an Air National Guard C-130 H-model at Robins Air Force Base, Ga., during depot maintenance, Alexandra Soika, an AMC spokeswoman told Stars and Stripes in a statement.

As of Thursday morning, eight C-130 aircraft were inspected and had returned to service, Soika said.

Hi All,Also from the quarterly update:
SMS’s installation team and engineers attended the first three installations in April providing training for technicians at MRO Holdings, Aeroman San Salvador facility. Aeroman has continued effective installations independently, without onsite assistance from SMS personnel. This milestone achievement sets the tone as SMS’s training team is now scheduled to attend Delta TechOps selected MRO facility in Mexico to conduct installation training, thus providing a second MRO facility fully capable of CVM™ APB installations. As stated, a total of nineteen (19) Delta B737-800 aircraft are currently scheduled for APB CVM™ Kit installations at these two MROs in 2019.

I note that since 2017, Delta own 49% of Aeromexico.
Also as per the below link, TechOps Mexico perform all of the maintenance of Aeromexico's Boeing & Embraer fleet, which make up 85% of their total fleet.
Cheers

Hi All,
The quarterly & company update are now out.
  • AEM finishes the financial year with stellar final quarter results, and posts material new record annual operational and financial performance

Looks like good result for AEM, and some also a lift in gross margin, 40% v 36% last year.

Also good news that sensor production processes have been improved "resulting in significant yield, quality and overall throughput gains."
I'm very comfortable with the way the company is progressing, and probably fair to say that Mr.Market is also starting to feel a little more warm & fuzzy! wink.gif
CheersDr_Dazmo

Hi All,Saw the below article some time ago, and seems to be highly relevant given the announcement today.

"...and SMS has been granted license rights to use Boeing proprietary data for the sale of products or services."

IP "Hoarding" Is Making Maintenance More Difficult


Tightening restrictions on sharing intellectual property are making maintenance of aircraft more difficult--especially on newer aircraft with large amounts of composites--speakers at Aviation Week's MRO Americas conference and exhibition in Atlanta said.

Both OEMs and airlines are guilty of tightening the noose on data about aircraft and information about repair techniques, says David Piotrowski of Delta TechOps, who labels the trend "IP hoarding."

Part of the motivation to tightly hold information that could broadly benefit the aviation community is protection against potential law suits. For example, both Delta and Airbus might have extensive data from inspections of composites on an aircraft, Airbus during the manufacturing process and Delta from inspections over the aircraft's lifecycle. At each point that an inspection might be done, the results show it clearly meets all specifications and safety requirements. Nonetheless, the data might be useful in predicting maintenance needs and in trends analysis, explains Piotrowski, the principal engineer in Delta Air Lines' enabling technologies group.

"We would like records from manufacturers about inspections done during fabrication," he said, but an OEM's lawyers will nix the idea, lest aircraft-specific data find its way into a law suit, should the airplane ever be involved in an accident. "Delta lawyers don't want to share, either," he said. Their attitude is, as long as the aircraft passes an inspection, there is no benefit in keeping detailed data but there is legal risk.

It's not just the lawyers who are to blame, though. OEMs--increasingly seeking to sell maintenance services and not just airplanes and engines--have become stingy about technical information and even threaten to void warranties if work is done by third parties, some speakers at MRO Americas said.

"They're taking maintenance instructions out of the manuals," said Harmen Lanser, the director of component management at KLM Engineering & Maintenance. "You either have to write your own procedures or buy them from the manufacturer."

Piotrowski, agrees. Once, an OEM "would just hand us a tech manual. Now, they say it's proprietary."

Lanser says OEMs even try to leverage their role as designer and manufacturer to force operators who insist on doing their own maintenance or using an independent MRO to buy inspection equipment from them. He cited an experience in which an OEM said, in effect, "You can buy the testing equipment from us. But it's the only equipment we trust. So if you don't buy it from us, you void the warranty."

See The Boeing 737 MAX Pile Up In Storage In These Time-Lapse Satellite Images

Over the past four months, Boeing has assembled about 180 737 MAXs that it can’t deliver to customers while the plane is grounded by aviation safety regulators. Now those planes are building up in three locations where Boeing is storing them, satellite images from Planet Labs show.
