Are you AC
? You've just insulted 800 A320 AME's and technicians. Air Canada does almost all of its A320 maintenance in YWG
, and has from day 1. Before that it was 727's.
C-phase checks, H-checks, and occasionally mods on AC
A320 series aircraft. The facility is a major competitor in the North American A320 maintenance business.
is currently carrying out jetBlue C-checks and satellite TV
mods (I believe it's the IFE mods referred to above, but not sure). There are three or four JB
aircraft around at any given time right now. In addition, there are maintenance contracts with Skyservice and USA3000. There are also a few ILFC aircraft there waiting for space in the hangar (ex-V-bird and Volare).
Since you clearly don't know what you're talking about, I'll also mention that Toronto is primarily a line maintenance base, and a paint shop. No heavy maintenance is done there (except some mods, maybe?). Montreal does A330's, A340's, and CRJ's. Vancouver, which was inherited from CAIL, does 767's, a bit of A320 overflow work, and I believe some A330/A340, but not sure of that.
America West no longer has their A320 work done in YWG
It is true that the Winnipeg maintenance base is mentioned in the ACPPA, but that's pretty irrelevant these days.
Stick to things you actually know about, and I'll do the same, okay?
The primary function of the design engineer is to make things difficult for the manufacturer and impossible for the AME.
