Would someone give me a quick overview of the differences between C & D checks and what exactly is entailed in each of them. I found this link with a couple of answers but it didn't go into too much depth.
I'm interested in how C checks get split up and what all gets done during a D check. How long are the planes out of service during the checks. General guidelines of when they are done (hours, rotations, or something else as the deciding factor.) Things like that are what I am after. And oh, I know a lot of planes get new paint during heavy checks but how long does it generally take to paint a plane (vague timeframes since I know planes vary in size.)
Thanks for the help. I'm not incredibly well versed in the TechOps side of the house and I'm just a wee bit curious to add more trivial knowledge to my brain.
