Boca Raton, FL –
VAS' Sr. Director of Quality and Operations, Kevin Flynn was recently featured in AviTrader's magazine. In the article Kevin shared that “There are several key factors that should be considered. First is understanding the history of the part and expectations for its current condition. What is the origin of the part? Is there a clear ownership chain? What is the operational history of the part and what environmental stresses was it subjected to? What was the original projected life span of the part and where in that lifecycle is it? What is the maintenance history? Are all the part’s traceability and maintenance documentation acceptable?
Secondly, what inspection procedures has the part been subjected to? For some non-safety critical parts, simple visual inspection by a qualified technician is sufficient to determine its current condition. For other, more flight-critical materials, more advanced diagnostic tests and repairs may be required, based on the OEMs CMM or AMM, in which case a visual inspection is not enough. Has the quality, condition and serviceability of the material been certified, and by whom? VAS algins itself with proven suppliers that are continually monitored to ensure exceptional product quality and on-time delivery.”
