Over the last number of years, the number of maintenance check flights, delivery/redelivery flights and flights involving aircraft in long term storage has increased exponentially. As aircraft are moved from one entity to another all over the world, there is a continuous need for qualified crew, under the supervision of a regulated entity, to conduct such operations.
Technical Flight Solutions operate under the supervision of the Irish Aviation Authority. Technical Flight Solutions comply with the recently expanded EASA Part NCC and Part-SPO.SPEC.MCF regulations. All our flight crew undergo extensive training in the conduct of maintenance check flights and are approved to conduct 'Schedule A' operations*.
Note: Schedule A operations as defined in EASA Annex VIII (Part-SPO) Subpart E, Section 5, Maintenance Check Flights
Our pilots are trained to perform maintenance check flights on the following aircraft types:
- Airbus 320/330 and 350 aircraft
- Boeing 737/777 and 787 aircraft
- ATR 42 and 72 series aircraft
- Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft
- A large variety of Business Jets
We work extensively with both Aircraft Manufacturers to give our pilots the support they need. We also utilise industry leading charting and flight planning products, ensuring flights are conducted in the most efficient manner possible.
We also work closely with the Irish Aviation Authority to ensure regulatory compliance in a highly regulated environment. This gives our customers the peace of mind they need from a safety and compliance perspective when encountering requirements to operate 'schedule A' check flights.
Technical Flight Solutions work with customers to tailor the exact flight schedules required. We then provide highly trained flight crew to perform the flights. TFS aim to give customers reassurance that such flights are conducted as safely as possible, under the umbrella of a regulatory compliant organisation.
