MRO industry girds for aircraft retirement tsunami
from Aviation Week
June 12, 2013:
Today's news is peppered with accounts of the early retirement of passenger jets. In 2012 alone, 50 aircraft aged 15 years or less were retired from fleets. While such statistics make for good headlines, in reality those 50 accounted for less than 10 percent of the aircraft retired last year. It is the sheer magnitude of retirements for aircraft of all ages that will have a profound impact on the aerospace and maintenance, repair and overhaul industries for the rest of the decade.
