During the Customer Maintenance Advisory Panel (CMAP) meetings.3 (MSG-3) Bell understands the importance of aircraft reliability to meet your mission needs.July 2010 42 Bell 429 Product Specification . Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AME) / Airframe & Power Plant (A&P) technicians also provided input as to the system detailed functions and used their many years of experience in aircraft operation.429 Maintenance Program Designed through Maintenance Steering Group . and improved reliability by utilizing the Maintenance Steering Group – 3 (MSG-3) while increasing occupant safety. From this resulted a maintenance schedule that requires 35% less maintenance man hours versus a comparable aircraft. thus improving the cost of ownership for the Bell 429. 4A . low direct maintenance costs. That’s why our maintenance philosophy is to streamline maintenance requirements to ensure low direct operating costs. the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). This is where the varied experience of the team came in to play. to determine the failure modes. including airframe structure and wiring installation. mainly Transport Canada (TC). The Bell 429 is the first rotorcraft designed through the MSG-3 in the creation of a maintenance schedule on a commercial helicopter with the support of the Aviation authorities. the team analyzed every aircraft system. respectively. The following are excellent features derived through MSG-3 for the Bell 429: • Approved Maintenance Program (TC/EASA) • First rotorcraft to use the MSG-3 Process • Certification through MSG-3 Process • Same process used by commercial airlines to ensure continued airworthiness • Determines how and when maintenance will be performed • Helicopter designed and built for maintenance • Accessible panels to aircraft systems • Maintenance Program • Task Intervals • Every 200 hours • 800 hours/12 month • Zonal Inspection Program introduced • Life Limited Parts • Composite Components – On Condition • Metallic Components – 10. their criticality.000 + hours (Goal) • Elastomeric Components – 5000 hours Rev. the ease of detection. the level of inspection required and the ideal recurrence of inspection.
