Welcome to the latest issue of MRO Management, which features an in-depth outlook for the global MRO industry for 2022.
We canvassed the views of 12 MRO houses, manufacturers, service providers and analysts for this special report to assess their general mood, feelings about the MRO recovery, strategies for 2022, and the technologies that will enable them to increase efficiency.
A general feeling of cautious optimism prevailed, but also a recognition of the impact the Covid-19 crisis could still have on the sector, and aviation in general.
No matter what happens, the MRO industry has proved itself to be resilient and innovative, and that will not change in 2022. As two of our commentators note in the MRO global outlook, based on their experiences at recent trade shows and other conversations, the industry is “hungry to drive out of the current situation” and has “a very positive vibe and energy” right now.
Elsewhere in the issue, we get some expert advice on how to perfect spare parts inventory management and put the spotlight on regional airliner MRO. We also present our regular array of interviews, news analysis and thought leadership articles. Our ‘Industry voices’ section, for example, features fascinating insights on different aspects of the industry – Pratt & Whitney on technological advancements; Fokker Services on supporting complex power generation components; and EirTrade Aviation on aircraft disassembly and recycling.
