Repair of aircraft

The aircraft - the safest mode of transportation. To always be so, it must be kept in good condition, and to find out how this happens, I invite you to visit the air-technical base of the Pulkovo airport.

1. wishes to get into the ATB and take pictures at the same time the aircraft in advance applied for in the group of the airport "Pulkovo".

2. Reconstruction of "Pulkovo" coming to an end.

3. hangars base can serve almost all used AK "Russia" AN-148 planes, Airbus 319, Airbus 320 and Boeing 767. B-767 because of its size is only half-fit. Pulkovo - home airport company.

4. Head area TO furnishings ATB Kazimir told what the bloggers as a base, which repairs are made.

5. Base hangars can simultaneously carried out scheduled and unscheduled work for two airplanes. The gates of the hangar using the motors on rails are moved to the side, allowing to drive the plane into the hangar. The door to exit out of technical staff like old times referred to as a wicket.

6. At this time in the hangar stood on planned maintenance Airbus A319.

7. Aircraft maintenance consists of periodic checks of the technical state of the aircraft, which are held at regular intervals or flight hours. There are the following types of inspections: Transit check, Daily sheck, Weekly check, A-check, B-check, C-check and D-check.
• Transit check, Daily and Weekly check sheck most simple test carried out before the flight, daily or weekly, respectively. For this form of testing does not require a hangar.
• A-check is carried out about 1 once a month or every 500 flight hours. A-check, usually done at night in the airport hangar.
• B-check is carried out once every 3 months. In practice, it is a little more detailed inspection of the basic units and units of aircraft.
• C-check - a more complex and serious form of aircraft maintenance. Performed every 15-20 months or 4000 hours of flight. To perform this test is required to bring the aircraft out of service for about two weeks, and need a lot of space. The plane is almost completely disassembled, eliminate defects and corrosion, check the operation of all devices.
• D-check - a very complex form of aircraft maintenance, it is generally carried out at an interval of 5 years. In fact, it can be assumed that after such service from a technical point of view, the aircraft is virtually as good as new.
