Maintenance management








Our monthly maintenance contract offers the client a service that is designed to remove the stress of owning an aircraft while maintaining the best possible airworthiness condition.

The monthly contract includes:

  • Weekly inspections

  • Maintenance tracking and forecasting

  • Technical and operational information service

  • Invoice scrutinising and liaison with AMO

  • Post-maintenance or fault-finding test flights

  • Snag delegation

  • Component sourcing and advice

  • These services may attract a nominal charge if they do not coincide with weekly inspections.

Extra inspections or work (including test flying by rated test pilots) is carried out where necessary at a nominal fee to address items that require specific attention.

Technical and operational advice is available to clients at no extra charge to provide updates on the aircraft status, maintenance queries or any other aviation related query. This service has proven most useful to the owner/pilot when planning excursions with the aircraft.

The benefits of the monthly maintenance contract are that the aircraft under our care are in excellent condition, they experience minimum down-time and are readily accepted by reputable maintenance organisations. The programme also adds to the intrinsic value of the machine as shown by the selling prices of these aircraft.



Based on more than 20 years in aviation maintenance management, Challenge Air is well positioned to offer the private aircraft or fleet owner an exclusive FIXED COST MPI Monitoring Programme.

Features and advantages of the MPI Monitoring Programme include:

The MPI Monitoring Programme is an affordable and effective solution to the frustration, anguish, and uncertainty of that all-important MPI/phase inspection. The aim of the MPI Monitoring Programme is to enhance the overall enjoyment of owning an aircraft while providing peace-of-mind and satisfaction.

The MPI Monitoring Programme, tailored to suit the owner/operator’s individual requirements as well as the AMO’s particular constraints, encompasses both fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft from small single-engine machines to large multi-engine turbines. The aircraft usually remains with its current AMO for inspections. Although, the designated Challenge Air programme coordinator may advise where a more suitable alternative maintenance organisation may be utilised (Challenge Air is NOT affiliated to any particular maintenance organisation). The designated coordinator actively drives the programme while maintaining appropriate liaison with the client and AMO.
