Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) granted approval for maintenance intervals escalation of the CRJ700, CRJ900 and CRJ1000 aircraft, which should result in 14% less maintenance days, Bombardier announced on September 24, 2018.
The line maintenance interval (A-check) is extended to 800 flight hours, and the heavy maintenance interval (C-check) at 8,000 flight hours. These intervals are applicable for new production deliveries and “CRJ700, CRJ900, and CRJ1000 aircraft in service”.
“ […] The CRJ Series operators can now take advantage of 14 per cent less maintenance days, meaning more days of revenue flying,” Charles Comtois, Head of CRJ Series Program is quoted as saying in a statement. According to the manufacturer, the maintenance intervals have doubled since the launch of the CRJ family.
