Questions About Delta TechOps

Sun Oct 11, 2009 11:37 am

I have a few questions about Delta's MX.
Is Delta doing any HMVs in house(DL fleet only)?
IIRC DL isn't doing any in house. The MD aircraft were being done at GDL and DHN, the 757s in SAT, the 767s in HKG. The 737s and 777s don't have HMVs just PSVs which Delta still does in house right? Will Delta be adding any floor space anywhere? I have been told they are pretty tight on Hangar space and I know Tony wants to keep the MRO side growing(and I hope he is looking at bringing more Delta work back in house) but, At least in Atlanta, its like the don't have to much room. Also what about Delta engines and APUs? How much is done in house?
Thanks for any help.

Yes, I believe PSVs are down in house. Delta has a huge overhaul shop for engines, but I have heard all the GE work will come down South while the RR work will go up North. Not sure about PW. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

777-200ERs RR Trent 895s. AA was doing the work on them. Atlanta doesn't have a test cell that a Trent 895 or GE90-110 will fit in. Also if you call the MD90 engines RR

as in DTW/MSP?

Not sure about PW.

DL does overhauls for the PW2000 and the PW4000 along with the JT8D-219

IAE is a joint venture between RR, PW, MTU, and a few Japanese companies.
Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?
