HAITEC Aircraft Maintenance recently performed its first D-Check on a Boeing 747-400. "A D-Check is by far the most comprehensive and demanding check for an aircraft. The aircraft is basically taken apart completely, each part is checked thoroughly. Any material fatigue, hair cracks or any other damages are detected and repaired”, explains Frank Rott, CEO at HAITEC.

Completing such a check on a Boeing 747-400 generally takes at least five weeks. Depending on technical problems or so-called findings, it can even last up to three months. “Performing such a complex check in minimum time requires highest technical skills and precise planning. Such capabilities are fundamental to positioning HAITEC as a major player within the independent, global MRO market”, says Rott.

"Our aircraft mechanics and avionics met our downtime commitment of 32 days! We are extremely proud of this extraordinary achievement and owe this success to our remarkable team of highly qualified technicians and the members of all supporting departments”, notes Andreas Reichert, COO at HAITEC.

Over 2.300 routine and non-routine jobs were completed within 26.000 man-hours. Around 800 findings were rectified during the check. Following a successful maintenance test flight, the Boeing 747-400 was released to the Azerbaijanian airline Silk Way.

The construction of the new hangar on HAITEC’s property is also progressing as scheduled. “Towards the end of September, we are planning to celebrate a cornerstone ceremony”, confirms HAITEC’s CEO. This expansion puts HAITEC in a privileged position to offer new employment opportunities in all areas. Starting in September 2016, the MRO will provide aircraft maintenance training as an EASA Part-147 approved organization and already accepts applications.
