During EART 2021, EATC leads various cross-national maintenance activities. The aim is to test and train current and future processes.
These activities gather EATC experts for the Technical and Logistic Branch, A400M maintenance teams from ESP, DEU and FRA, as well as A330MRTT maintenance teams from FRA and the MMU*.
EATC and the teams test A400M draft processes based on EATC’s “A400M Cross-Exchange of Technicians Manual” (AXET Manual) and on scenarios (“what if” cases) including an exchange of technicians, one-off certification authorisation, sharing of spare parts, tasking a military approved maintenance organisation from another nations. They also exchange lessons learned, information, and expectations.
As for the A330 MRTT, EATC’s aim is to present the opportunities and benefits of cross-national maintenance to the MMU and FRA teams. Together they explore A330MRTT and national maintenance specificities linked to IT or specific FRA/MMU procedures.
