First World Maintenance Symposium To Explore New Technologies

Will Be Held In Miami, FL In September

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) will host the first World Maintenance Symposium (WMS) on September 23-24 in Miami, FL. The cost of aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) was $62.1 billion in 2014 and is expected to grow to $90 billion by 2024, according to Jonathan M. Berger, Vice President, ICF International, in an MRO Market Forecast and Key Trends released in January. The WMS will enable aviation stakeholders to share experience and best practices on managing this critical function with maximum efficiency.

“Airlines place safety as the highest priority and work hard to maximize the operational reliability of their aircraft. To accomplish this while reducing the ever-increasing cost of MRO remains a challenge. The World Maintenance Symposium presents a unique opportunity for all stakeholders to share lessons learned and cross-sector expertise that reflect global standards and best practices,” said Rob Eagles, IATA’s interim Senior Vice President, Safety and Flight Operations.

The WMS program sessions will address the complexities of aircraft maintenance, covering topics such as:

  • Opportunities of Wi-Fi versus in-seat inflight entertainment (IFE) in aircraft cabins
  • Aircraft dispatch reliability and human factors
  • Financial and reputational impact from delays
  • Virtual maintenance training (VMT) for MRO

In conjunction with the WMS, the 11th edition of the Maintenance Cost Conference (MCC) will take place, offering parallel sessions on:
3-D printing techniques and how they are reducing costs across MRO areas
Improving the turn-around time for components that need outsourcing
Implementing paperless maintenance records to improve efficiencies and minimize costly human error.
More than 300 delegates from airlines, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), maintenance and repair organizations, solution providers, and other stakeholders across the global value chain are expected to attend the event.
