Aircraft Maintenance?

I was wondering what aircraft maintenance entails, how long it takes, how frequent it is, etc. I've heard there are A checks, B checks, etc. but I would like to know what those are and how frequent they are. Maybe if it varies by aircraft use the A320 as an example. Thanks!

It has been discussed here ad nauseam. I would suggest a simple search, but this website has a terrible search engine...always has.

The simple answer is: it depends.

It depends,
- on the manufacturer
- on the operator
- on the aircraft
- on the regulator
- a combination of all of the above

An A-Check at one operator may not look anything like an A-Check at another...or like an A-Check on a different type at the same operator.
