The EASA approved management service includes; Aircraft Acquisition and Lease Management, Approved Maintenance Programme Development, Defect Analysis, Design Services and Maintenance Control and Planning to name but a few.

Design Services

This team is an EASA and GCAA Part 21 Subpart J design organisation. They deliver In-Flight Entertainment solutions, Interior Modifications from a flower holder in a wash room or a new interior design and Repair Classification, Assessment and Mapping.

Component Services

Monarch Aircraft Engineering understands that component reliability and time on wing is critical to keeping your aircraft in the air. So when there is a technical issue with an aircraft you need to speak to the right people to either repair or replace the defective part.

We offer our customers a one-stop shop solution to this problem, our Spares Trading team can supply you with the part from our extensive range of consumable and rotable aircraft parts in stock, while our Component Maintenance Centre can repair the unit in one of our state-of-the art facilities.

They offer; Calibration Services, Composite Services and Mechanical Services.

Logistics Handling

The care and handling of all Monarch’s aircraft parts (in excess 50,000 line items!) is managed by this department. A part can be anything from a single rivet to an aircraft engine and each needs as much care and attention as each other. The operation runs 24/7 due to operational requirements. The team here are very focused on attention to detail and have to work closely together to enable the effective planning for the department.

Team work is important in this department. Roles in this department are not your standard warehouse roles, the overall tasks are similar but a lot more specialised. The employees are multi-functional and have responsibilities across the warehouse.

Compliance & Safety

This department carries out 3 main tasks and ensures that the company carries out the requirements of various pieces of regulation. European law in the form of EASA, Health & Safety law of the UK and company safety requirements to reduce errors in aircraft engineering. The team audit each part of the business ensuring that correct processes are followed for the welfare of the staff and safety of the aircraft. They work with external bodies including CAA, FAA, GCAA and other national airworthiness departments.

Based on risk assessments they are able to advise departments going forward on new requirements and old. The people who work in this department are self-motivated, willing to challenge aviation law and are able to work in a small team and connect with the larger organisation.

Maintenance Planning & Control (MPAC)

The MPAC team are located in Birmingham and are responsible for the day to day oversight of all ongoing maintenance activity. The team hold daily operational calls with our Luton, Birmingham, and Manchester hangar teams and our Line Maintenance teams across the UK and beyond.

MPAC monitors the maintenance ‘as it happens’ which, during the busy winter season, can be up 11 lines of medium to heavy maintenance in our hangars. The plan can change for any number of reasons including delayed starts due to customer operational needs, significant defects resulting from inspections included in the work-package, and delayed delivery dates due to external supplier support issues; the result is usually a change to the overall maintenance plan which MPAC has to manage.

As you would expect this involves a significant amount of negotiation and discussion with our customers the aircraft operators, and so it is important that MPAC maintains good relationships with each of them.

In addition MPAC plans and coordinates the maintenance activity at each of our Line stations, holding daily calls with each customer and each line station to review and agree the planned work.

The MPAC team are also responsible for the strategic planning of maintenance activity within our hangar facilities. The department receives each contracted customer’s maintenance requirements for the coming season.

Each requirement is plotted against our available hangarage and manpower and a ‘best-fit’ seasonal maintenance plan is devised and agreed with the customer.

Any potential sales opportunities for additional hangar slots are then vetted by the team to determine whether they can be accommodated.

Maintenance Planning & Strategy Team

Strategic Planning

Based in Birmingham the Strategic Planning department receives each contracted customer’s maintenance requirements for the coming season. Each requirement is plotted against our available hangarage and manpower and a ‘best-fit’ seasonal maintenance plan is devised and agreed with the customer. Any potential sales opportunities for additional hangar slots are then vetted by the team to determine whether they can be accommodated.

Upstream (Production) Planning

With team members based in Luton and Manchester the Upstream Planning Team consists of Fleet and 3rd Party Planners. The two main functions of the department are:

For managed customer aircraft, to review and collect all of the maintenance tasks that are due, to enable an electronic Work-package to be created in AMOS. Once all of the tasks are collected electronically, production of each package of work, (from overnight A check through to heavy C check) is enabled by printing and collating the paper documents for the hangar teams to complete and certify. The team ensures that all required maintenance documents are included, all parts are planned to be on site, and that any 3rd party services like Non-Destructive Testing and aircraft weighing have been arranged.

For non-managed customer aircraft, to receive work packages and import them into AMOS, so that they can be controlled in the same way as a managed aircraft. This involves creating import files for the customer provided work package and adding these details into AMOS, which produces an electronic Work-package with individual barcodes for each task, allowing the planning team to link the paper package to the virtual AMOS package. As with the managed Customer aircraft the team print and collate the paper documents for the hangar teams to complete and certify and ensure that all parts, maintenance documents, and third party services are organised.
