What are your thoughts on manufacturers striving to make new generation aircraft more reliable and with lower maintenance requirements?
Air transport category aircraft are immensely complex with a ridiculous level of interaction between system. Interaction that was unheard of when I got into the business.
The routine end of the business is between the manufacturer, the regulator and the operator...and, it’s not going away.
My end of the business (chronic problems) is only going to get more interesting and manpower intensive. Especially since we’re delving into the prognostication of aircraft problems using all kinds of predictive reporting tools.
I see the middle end of the business getting a little slack. As reliability goes up, through design and preventative maintenance, I see line maintenance getting a little lean, but that can’t be helped. The work will pick up on either end.

Chances are if you’ve eaten Lays chips outside North America and South America (only just started there) your potato/chip has touched some of the equipment my company provides. Sit in the back of planes here there and everywhere every week or two.

And there was me thinking that I was the only one who worked in food engineering! I have probably used your equipment and been to do tests.
I work as a process engineer, managing R&D projects for a large frozen french fry company. My job is to find relevant technologies to our business, understand the tech, the businesses and how they fit with our business. Organise testing if required and make recommendations to our business.
