Comprehensive care gains traction with regionals
from Aviation Week
The lines separating major carriers from regional carriers continue to blur, and that's having an impact on the way the latter look at maintenance. Consider that larger regional jet aircraft such as the Embraer 170 and 190 family and Bombardier's forthcoming CSeries are—or soon will be—ranging farther afield. These types supplant major carriers' mainline jets on routes that were once a sole province. Capacity-purchase pacts between the majors and the regionals are rising to new levels, mandating increasingly comprehensive power-by-the-hour agreements that cover everything from powerplants and parts to airframes.
