Structure Repairs at Lease Transition

What to look for with regard to Structure Repairs at Lease Transition, see a typical extract from the technical lease return conditions below.

All repairs to the Aircraft will have been accomplished in accordance with Airframe Manufacturer’s Structural Repair Manual (or EASA-approved data supported by supported by EASA Part 21J design approval or Airframe Manufacturer’s Repair Design Approval Sheets).

Lessee will permanently repair damage to the Aircraft that exceeds Manufacturer’s limits and replace any non flush-type external repairs installed on the Aircraft during the Lease Term with permanent flush-type repairs (unless:

(i) a particular flush repair is not available from the Airframe Manufacturer,

(ii) Lessee proposes a non-flush repair scheme and obtains Lessor’s prior written consent to such non-flush repair or

(iii) the parties otherwise mutually agree to waive the flush repair with appropriate financial compensation paid to Lessor),

in each case with no further inspection requirements other than with respect to the Airframe, the category B inspection requirement from the Airframe Manufacturer. All repairs made to the principal structural element and fatigue critical structure will comply with the aging airplane safety rule requirements of widespread fatigue damage assessment programs.
