Conference Description:

Ensuring cost effective legacy fleet sustainment and airworthiness
Ageing Aircraft concerns have dramatically escalated in the military aviation community during the past decade. Some models, which have already been in service for more than 40 years, will need to be retained for another two decades or longer, often serving in roles and in theatres very different from what was envisioned when they were originally designed.

What are the typical Ageing Aircraft challenges?
Technological obsolescence
The spectre of runaway maintenance costs
Safety issues
Spare parts, processes and tooling may no longer be available
Logistic procedures may have changed
Suppliers may be out of the business
Budgetary limitations
Higher fleet utilisation will increase the demand to cope with ageing structures
Reliance will grow on major subsystems like engines and avionics

Defence IQ are bringing together those individuals tasked with ensuring the airworthiness and sustainment of ageing fleets within key NATO nations. Participants will be selected from a wide range of global militaries as well as industry aircraft manufacturers to deliver an unbeatable forum to share best practices, benchmark with military peers and discuss the current and future technologies which will keep ageing aircraft airworthy.
