The average age of our registered aircraft has been getting older. However, it is not uncommon for aircraft to still be in service at 25 or even 30 years of age. If the proper maintenance procedures are followed, chronological age is not a limitation. Some components are replaced according to their calendar age, while others are replaced on flight hours or cycles. Inspections are conducted in regular intervals.
