What all is involved in bringing a plane out of the desert/storage? Just a quick vacuming and some air freshener, or is it more thurough?

Cheers,

Most of the planes in storage have missed major maintenance, so that must be done before the plane reenters revenue service.

I'd rather be flying.

Quite the question. As was stated, most need a check of some level. In fact all do. It may be an A, it may be a D, but it will need some form of thorough check.

I can say, from experience, that a certain AAirline (not a typo) will never let an airplane go from storage without, at least, new brakes and tires, no matter if it's been in storage 3 weeks or 3 years.



Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

There are inspections detailed in an airplanes maintenance manual that describes what checks need to be carried out for various storage times.
