Info and Concepts

Each lifespan component is related to an aircraft. As the AF details of that aircraft are updated the “to run” calculations of each component are updated.

Components can be transferred to other aircraft and will take their service history with them.

Each component has a “parent” type. The parent type (e.g. Engine 1, Equipment, Avionics, and Tail Rotor) will sort components in reports as well as allowing aerotrack to transfer entire parent group of components from one aircraft to another.

Servicing details for each component are entered manually.

Where

The “Lifespan Components” tab panel in the maintenance scheduling section of aerotrack

Walkthrough

  1. To create a new lifespan component click the green “add” button above the table.
  2. You will see a new line added to the components table. A popup window will appear for entering the component detail. The table is not directly editable.
  3. Enter the parent group and the component type. These are both editable type-ahead fields. If the part-type is not in the list, type it, it will now appear and is available in the future for other components. Reports will sort by this field.
  4. Enter the component description (usually the model no.) and serial #
  5. Enter the cost to replace/service the component
  6. Enter the “limited by” and “monitor by” details from the drop down lists.
  7. Depending on your selection in the “monitor by” field you now have to enter the installation and interval details of this component. See the examples below.

Example 1 – Engine O/H (1800 hr interval installed new on new aircraft – never overhauled)

  1. The original installation AF hours will be “0” (as it is a new aircraft)
  2. The TSN at original installation will be “0” (as it is a new part)
  3. The last installation AF hours will be “0” (never overhauled)
  4. The TSO at last installation will be “0” (never overhauled)
  5. TSN and TSO will now calculate and will be the AF current hours.
  6. Enter the interval of 1800
  7. The Due, To Run, and % Remaining will now calculate based on the AF current hours.

Example 2 – Engine O/H (1800 hr interval installed new on aircraft 3600 hours – never overhauled)

  1. The original installation AF hours will be “3600”
  2. The TSN at original installation will be “0” (as it is a new part)
  3. The last installation AF hours will be “3600” (never overhauled)
  4. The TSO at last installation will be “0” (never overhauled, new part)
  5. TSN and TSO will now calculate and will be difference between the AF current hours and last installed hours. TSN and TSO will be the same as it is a new part.
  6. Enter the interval of 1800
  7. The Due, To Run, and % Remaining will now calculate based on the AF current hours.

Example 3 – Engine O/H (1800 hr interval installed newly overhauled TSN 5400 on aircraft 3600 hours)

  1. The original installation AF hours will be “3600”
  2. The TSN at original installation will be “5400” (as it is second hand )
  3. The last installation AF hours will be “3600”
  4. The TSO at last installation will be “0” (newly overhauled)
  5. TSN and TSO will now calculate and will be difference between the AF current hours and last installed hours. TSN and TSO will be different as it is an overhauled part.
  6. Enter the interval of 1800
  7. The Due, To Run, and % Remaining will now calculate based on the AF current hours.

Example 4 – Engine O/H (1800 hr interval installed TSO 350 TSN 5400 on aircraft 3600 hours)

  1. The original installation AF hours will be “3600”
  2. The TSN at original installation will be “5400” (as it is second hand)
  3. The last installation AF hours will be “3600”
  4. The TSO at last installation will be “350” (used part)
  5. TSN and TSO will now calculate and will be difference between the AF current hours and last installed hours + original TSO. TSN and TSO will be different as it is an overhauled part.
  6. Enter the interval of 1800
  7. The Due, To Run, and % Remaining will now calculate based on the AF current hours.

Example 5 – Engine O/H (1800 hr interval originally installed new on new aircraft last overhauled 3600 AF TTIS aircraft.)

  1. The original installation AF hours will be “0”
  2. The TSN at original installation will be “0” (as it was a new part)
  3. The last installation AF hours will be “3600”
  4. The TSO at last installation will be “0” (newly overhauled)
  5. TSN and TSO will now calculate and will be difference between the AF current hours and last installed hours. TSN and TSO will be different as it is an overhauled part.
  6. Enter the interval of 1800
  7. The Due, To Run, and % Remaining will now calculate based on the AF current hours.

Tips

If the “monitor by” type is “first hours or days” or “first hours or cycles” then you will need to complete all the hours and days or hours and cycles installation detail. Whichever comes first will have either a (D), (H), or (C) as the last letter in the “monitor by” in the table above.

Clicking the heading “To Run” in the table will sort this table ascending or descending by this column. Useful if you have large numbers of lifespan components.
