MTUPlus Mature Engine Solutions
While aircraft equipped with new engines are ever increasingly entering service, a large number of older models are still in operation. The closer the engines powering such aircraft are to the end of their life cycle, the more money their operators have to spend on shop visits. The reason being that, with increasing age, engines need more replacement parts, including expensive life-limited parts.
