About the course

2-day (16 hours) classroom course

Currently, about 700 aircraft are retired each year, with a growing trend. If undertaken in a timely and appropriate manner, decommissioning can allow recovery of a good residual value from re-used parts and recycled material, whilst minimizing environmental and safety risks. Timely retirement is an essential part of the fleet renewal process. Today, around 90% of aircraft parts can be reused or recycled. However, for most airlines and other aircraft owners, such as lessors, limited experience is available on managing aircraft decommissioning as a controlled process.

In this 2-day workshop you will receive guidance on business processes, operational experiences and best practices in the industry, reinforced with exercises, discussions, and role-play to equip you with the knowledge to optimize the residual value from aircraft decommissioning.

This course is available at IATA Training Centers and Regional Training Partner locations, and on-demand as in-house training.
