Aircraft maintenance is an area where process and regimented guidelines are for obvious reasons of great importance, however it is also an area which some believe should be open to innovations which in many cases could be classed as violations. In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant chats with one such supporter of that theory. Former RAAF Officer Tony Bannister-Tyrrell, now working as a senior consultant for Coras, shares how his time as P3 Orion Senior Maintenance Manager for Australian Aerospace has led him to completing a PhD on traversing the breach between innovation and violation in aircraft maintenance. Tony shares how maintenance is currently being conducted across the industry, why such strict regulations can be detrimental to technicians and to the trade and discusses how his study plans to showcase why identifying violations can ultimately result in improved processes.
