All aircraft require some level of maintenance to ensure that they continue to operate safely.

Maintenance includes inspections, repairs, overhauls, replacing parts, etc. In Europe, the general aviation maintenance industry is an important contributor to the economy. Many highly skilled engineers, technicians and inspectors work to make sure that the planes we fly in are kept in a safe condition.
