Since the origin of flight, the main goal of aircraft maintenance has been to efficiently correct defects and preven failures. From the original days of manned or unmanned flight, the individuals and their processes to repair, modify, maintain, and service the vehicles that were used to rise above the ground have largely been unsung.
Aircraft Maintenance is a comprehensive executive-summary-style report written for business professions, engineers, mechancis, technicians, educators, and students that covers everything from history, evolution, evaluation and the future. Author Bruce R. Aubin examines and explains the processes and systemsof aircraft maintenance that were developed to ensure the quality, viability, and safety of the people and machines committed to flight.
