According to many of the world’s leading airlines, aircraft engineers, and designers, the aircraft of the future will have no windows. It is a bold statement to make, and one that may even slightly unsettle those with a fear of enclosed spaces, but a love of air travel. The reason behind the future banishing of windows from passenger aircraft is driven by the demand for complete sustainability and environmental awareness across the entire aviation industry.

One of the most prevalent challenges in the airline industry is the need to reduce costs and delays, while maintaining and improving aircraft operational reliability. Currently, airlines and MROs are trying to leverage data and technological progress to better predict and manage aircraft maintenance efforts through predictive maintenance (PdM). What is predictive maintenance and why do airlines need it? Aircraft maintenance is an integral part of ensuring an aircraft is safe for operations. Poor maintenance planning can lead to devastating financial results
Some commercial aircraft have spent more than 45-years in active service. But to assure passenger safety, airlines across the globe are required to complete a constant and effective inspection and maintenance program for its fleets. The maintenance of each jet depends on the jurisdiction, particularly the location in which the aircraft is registered. Authorities include the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) in the United States, and the Transport Canada Civil Aviation Directorate (TCCA).

When Sidhant Sharma first started along his path in aviation, he never imagined he would earn the title of being an aircraft maintenance engineer (AME) at Air Canada, and possibly even the world’s youngest Boeing 787 engineer. Sharma has been around aviation his whole life — from being in Air Cadets from a young age, to his father being a loadmaster for Japan Airlines, and his brother becoming an Airbus A320 first officer — but he was especially drawn to the often-overshadowed maintenance side of
