Future MRO & Ageing Aircraft 2011
Extending the life cycle of civil aircraft for the 21st century
24th to 25th October 2011, Holiday Inn Bloomsbury, London, UK

In a world where credit has become scarce, fleet life extension is an attractive prospect for both large and small airlines – regional and global as the costs of purchasing or leasing new aircraft can significantly outstrip the costs of extending an airframe or engine's life span.
SMi’s Future MRO & Ageing Aircraft 2011 conference will explore the debate and technical considerations around mid to end-life civil aviation fleet extension as well as a number of themes including the technical and cost implications of extending an aircrafts life versus renewing a fleet with modern aircraft. The conference will also examine future MRO strategies and analyse successful airline case studies.
This unique conference will bring together ageing fleet operators, MRO organisations, aviation consultants and financiers into one place to network and learn about the practical steps necessary to extend the life of an aircraft and ensure a sound return on investment on such projects.

Key issues to be addressed:
• Technological obsolescence
• Unexpected maintenance costs
• Useful economic life
• Freighter conversion opportunities and costs
• Part Out considerations
• Maintenance Costs and Planning
• Environmental considerations
• Higher fleet utilisation
