On-board diagnostic equipment is permanently installed on individual aircraft to collect ongoing data during normal flight operations. On-board systems collect data continuously, without the need for technician monitoring or intervention. Data is simply downloaded to a portable DU (Display Unit – PC) after a number of flights and then analyzed by ground-based software that examines trends in the engine and components. The system also provides track and balance solutions that can be undertaken when a suitable maintenance window becomes available. This allows for early detection of potential problems before they become real problems.
Like everything we do at Hope Aero, equipping our customers with the right on-board system helps aircraft spend more time in the air and less time in maintenance, saving what’s precious: both time and money.
As with carry-on systems, continual technological improvements allow us to provide our customers with a range of on-board solutions. With the largest inventory and widest range of state-of-the-art equipment, as well as the most experience in the industry, Hope Aero can provide you with the equipment and training necessary to meet your analysis needs.
