Evaluation of Management System Effectiveness in the Preparation of the Aircraft for Flight in Faulty Conditions

Ruta Bogdane, Andris Vaivads, Dejan Dencic


Most flight delays in aviation enterprises are related to air traffic management and technical centers. This can happen for various reasons: untimely removal of defects, lack of spare parts, deficiencies in maintenance scheduling, etc. Another reason may be inefficient management in the system of preparing the aircraft for departure. The article suggests a possible option of such an assessment as well as the results obtained from the use of this methodology applied to a specific airline.
