Maintenance Service

Aufwind is your partner in operating and maintaining your aircraft. Of course, we will be glad to perform these services for you if you do not like to get involved into maintenance.

Periodical Inspections

Regular inspections and checks in alignment with the Aircraft Maintenance Programme are usually performed every 50 or 100 hours flight time and at least once a year. They are the basis of the safe operation of an aircraft and help spotting developing deviances of the aircraft before they become a serious and expensive issue. Aufwind can assist you in performing these inspections and guide you through the process.

Rigging

Aircraft are built by the manufacturer to fly straight ahead without constant input of the pilot. If this is not the case with your aircraft, or it needs constant control input to fly straight, it is an indication of misaligning of wings or control surfaces. We can assist you in rigging the aircraft and guide you through the systematic process of aircraft rigging by changing the angles of incidence and settings of control surfaces.

Weighting

Not only the regulations require the mass and balance sheet to be correct, also the Pilot wants to know the useful load and possible load distributions for safe flight. We can assist you in performing a new weighting if your aircraft has undergone changes or just if you want to be sure about the correct payload and center of gravity of your aircraft.

Repairs

Sometime, servicing an aircraft just isn’t enough: When something breaks, you find a “hangar rash” on your aircraft or the aircraft has made a hard landing or suffered a prop strike, a repair might be necessary. Aufwind can assist you in tracing spare parts, performing repairs on metal, wood and composite structures, engines, electrics, and parts.

Changes

Changes to aircraft can only be made, if they are certified either by a supplemental type certificate, minor change or standard change. We can help you to embody these changes to your aircraft, in alignment with the documentation.

Troubleshooting

Especially on old aircraft, wear and usage can lead to defects and failures that are not easily rectified. Fighting the symptoms of a failure is usually only a remedy of short duration. Finding the origin of a problem, however, can be a time intensive and tedious process that can easily become an expensive maintenance experience. By assisting the owner creating a troubleshoot plan and helping to systematically find the origin of faults, we can reduce costs of troubleshooting and are often able to prevent costly and unnecessary overhaul of items.
