PILOT SHORTAGE: THE ROLE OF MROs
While the peak of the pandemic is thankfully far behind us, all segments of the aviation industry are still feeling the lasting effects that we are collectively working to solve together. Airlines and operators feel the impact of the pilot shortage, just as we feel the impact of the technician shortage as an MRO.
Now more than ever we’re adapting our support structure for our customers while continuing to grow our service offering. Overcoming challenges while continuing to evolve is key, so we recently sat down with Amel Belkhamsa, Head of Aftermarket Commercial Services at MHIRJ to talk about how we’re doing just that:
KEEPING GROWTH IN MOTION
Along with a shortage of pilots and technicians are supply chain difficulties that continue to impact us, our partners, and suppliers. The good news is that regional and international travel are thriving once again, and we’re working even more closely with our customers to adapt to their growing needs so that together we can lessen any disturbances in their operations.
While the impact is global, so are the efforts to create change. It’s opened our eyes to the way we anticipate and react to challenges and demands over the coming years, and gives us the opportunity to grow and evolve in a way that is better prepared to remain steadfast in handling our customers’ fleet requirements.
“We’re working with our suppliers to make sure that from an availability of component perspective, there is readiness or some kind of mitigation when it comes to the demand. We’ve come out of the pandemic smarter than we were prior to it,” Belkhamsa shared.
As a result, we’ve emerged on the other side a newly expanded MRO infrastructure, as well as plans to continue increasing our service offering to cater to even more aircraft programs. Stay tuned to WINGSPAN for more exciting news and developments in the coming months.
