Mechanical engineers

Mechanical engineers will organize and manage all maintenance processes. Higher will be their qualification, longer will be the flight time allowed before mandatory aircraft maintenance. Their professional level can be increased step by step, one level at the time. Each level will allow the mechanical engineer to increase 2 hours the aircraft flight time before mandatory maintenance. In order to update the structure the process will cost some money and time, besides the weekly salary of the employees and office expenses will increase accordingly. Maximum mechanical engineers level reachable is 40.

Example

Your Fokker 50 has logged 1529 hours of flight time and has to undergo the scheduled maintenance. The cost would be € 833.704 and time required would be 42h 04m. Flight time before next mandatory maintenance would be extended by 100 hours. Should your aircraft be stationing in the airline base or one of your hangars, both cost of maintenance and waiting time will be reduced by 50%, namely € 416.852 and 21h 02m, yet with 100 hour extension prior next mandatory maintenance. Should your ground team be more qualified at levels other than 0, let’s say buyer at 4, mechanics at 6 and mechanical engineers at 9, the cost will be 408.514,96 (416.852 minus 2%) and the time required 17h 15m (21h 02m minus 18%). Furthermore flight time before next mandatory maintenance will be extended to 1647 hours (118 hours instead of 100).

Their goal is to obtain the delivery of ordered aircrafts faster than the standard published delivery time. Like other members of the Airline staff as previously described , also the Brokers job effectiveness improves according to their professional level.
