How Long???

Innovation In Tight Spaces

The current guidelines used for aircraft maintenance required that the entire engine be removed, which would require at least 36 hours per jet.
but does reveal the surprising fact that it takes “at least 36 hours” to remove an F-35A engine – and presumably another 36 hours to replace it.
It would take longer to fit BTW.

Coltrin went on to say that their partnership is strong because many of the functions that existed within a traditional maintenance squadron with fourth generation aircraft now lie within the fifth-generation aircraft maintenance squadron.

More now than ever we rely on each other to accomplish organic maintenance. On fifth-gen aircraft it takes a village. No squadron can go it alone,” said Coltrin.
organic maintenance.
How apt, no artificial fertiliser, just natural pure sh*te
LOL 36 Hours.
