Transit Check


Between flights, FPSS line technicians perform a transit check of the airplane on the airport ramp. This includes a walk-around inspection of the airplane for obvious signs of wear and damage, required servicing, correction of discrepancies, and operational tasks specified by the airplane manufacturer. Our qualified technical personnel carry out a visual pre-flight walk-around of the airplane, and the flight crew completes a pre-flight checklist from the flight deck. Together, these steps should help to ensure the airworthiness of the airplane is maintained.
