Cost Oversight – Component Flight Hour Over & Above Charges

  • Component flight hour (‘PBH’) agreements include over and above (“O&A”) charges related to CID/FOD/Misuse/SBs/BERs 
  • Charges can be subject to erroneous O&A claims and excessive repair costs
  • An airline’s total annual flight hour costs can include an estimated 5%-15% O&A charges
  • We ensure, as far as possible, that an airline only pays for applicable and fair repair charges
  • Our engineers assess if charges should be included under the flight hour rate, e.g. not CID but normal wear and tear, or confirm O&A classification is correct and then check the repair cost is fair and equitable

Cost Oversight – Repair Quotations

  • Supplier repair costs, including contracted pricing, can be subject to errors and overcharges
  • The service is applicable to high/medium value repairs – e.g. APU Thrust Reversers, Cowls, Landing Gear Flight Surfaces, Engine accessories and high component/rotable repair costs (≥$5k)
  • Our engineers review quotations to ensure repair costs are fair and equitable versus the component defect the proposed supplier workscope, and fully meets any contracted repair pricing terms
  • Our engineers police and enforce contracted T&Cs and pricing, and the validate warranty denied quotations
