As electric propulsion evolves, can engine MROs adapt?
Electric propulsion for commercial aircraft, once viable, could force massive changes on MRO providers.
For electric power to replace current engines on commercial aircraft, major improvements in battery technology will be needed.
How MRO providers and airlines are building up their 3D printing capabilities
Additive manufacturing is making serious inroads for MRO applications, but challenges may slow its adoption for some uses.
The year 2018 presents new opportunities for MRO, as new-generation aircraft need shop visits and air cargo growth fuels conversions.
