Aircraft require increased maintenance as they age, meaning frequent check-ins and repairs will be needed to keep your aircraft in operation. Over time, an airplane loses its airworthiness and the price of maintenance begins to exceed the value of the airplane, which can be a good indicator that the plane is reaching the end of its lifespan. However, if the price of keeping your aircraft operational is not a concern, then aircraft lifespans end when they are no longer airworthy. Some damage or wear may be beyond repair, and an attempt to make the aircraft airworthy would be a threat to safety. It is important that pilots do not push the limits of their machines, as this can be catastrophic. There are telltale signs of aircraft needing maintenance, and this blog will cover a few ways to identify if your aircraft is at risk of losing its airworthiness.
