MRO Management December 2018

Phil Randell, owner and Accountable Manger of World Aero, a UK-based specialist wheel and brake MRO provider, described the business. “Wheel and brake maintenance is always on an on-condition basis, there’s generally never any schelduled maintenance. Many people outside the business assume we’re busier during the winter when more aircraft are in heavy maintenance, but in fact the opposite is true, because if an aircraft’s tyres and brakes have life left, they won’t be disturbed during heavy checks. But when an aircraft is operating, if the tyres or brakes are worn out, they’ll be removed. Our work is therefore driven by aircraft utilisation.”
