The Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) has granted
approval for the maintenance intervals escalation of the
Bombardier CRJ700, CRJ900 and CRJ1000 aircraft.
The line maintenance interval (A-check)
has been extended to 800 flight hours, and the heavy maintenance
interval (C-check) is not set at 8,000 flight hours.
“With the longest maintenance intervals on the
regional jet market, the CRJ aircraft family continues to deliver
more value to operators, along with its excellent reliability and
its proven outstanding operational capability,” said Charles
Comtois, Head of CRJ Series Program, Bombardier Commercial
Aircraft. “We are thrilled that our operators are benefitting from
our continuous improvement mindset as with this evolution, the CRJ
Series operators can now take advantage of 14 per cent less
maintenance days, meaning more days of revenue flying.”
maintenance intervals have doubled since the launch of the CRJ
aircraft family. The new maintenance intervals are applicable for
new production deliveries as well as all CRJ700, CRJ900, and
CRJ1000 aircraft in service.
