The aerospace technology has grown dynamically, and even the pilots and engineers confront a hard time fathoming aircraft and engine operations & configurations. Gnat Aviation, Indian aero engine & aircraft management & consultation company, perfectly bridges the challenges to monitor and conduct repairs. Niranjan Kumar, CEO, Gnat Aviation, who is a passionate experienced engineer has embarked on a journey to build a platform with one of the most skilled & knowledgeable teams in the industry that handles complex technologies. He has experience and a successful career with top ranking fortune companies globally. He has grown-up from bottom ranks to the senior management and later taken Board Executive level positions.
Globally, commercial airlines and business aviation are on the rise, and this has put a lot of pressure on the engineering teams. Considering this trend, Gnat continues to build multiple teams with its resources to support the lessor, lessee and owner of aircraft and engines.
A New Way of Aircraft/Engine Repair Management
Given the mandatory need for aircraft maintenance despite its complexity and delay, the aircraft maintenance, repair & overhaul (MRO) market is flooded with options. With OEMs at the opposite end, since the word ‘repair’ is often out of their dictionary, they replace even the repairable parts with new ones, causing long delays in
terms of delivery (that result in a loss for the airliner). An engine MRO could be more expensive to overhaul or repair. Gnat Aviation pitches and educates the operators to provide the MRO services with remarkable turnaround-time and without brokerage, and also promises to repair every possible part of the engine, thus saving around 30-50 percent of the usual maintenance cost. It’s not surprising that Gnat has cracked MRO deals with the world’s leading airlines.
“We have identified international facilities with various MRO capabilities. Considering these facilities, we have drawn major programs which can lead to very advanced repair capability. Gnat Aviation is globally attempting these repairs at experience repair facilities. We are proud of our teams to experiment next generation repairs. When it comes to the airframe, Gnat performs a prior calculation and informs the clients how efficient and in MRO block slots for any major and minor works. Where A checks and B checks can be done, so that the clients get to schedule in advance,” asserts Niranjan.
