Canuck600 wrote:Just wondering how long it takes to recover the costs for something like a D check where you spend say a million dollars on the aircraft? How many revenue hours would you have to fly to recover those costs? I assume having enough hours & cycles left on a frame to recover costs play a factor in whether the aircraft goes for the that major check or if it gets sent to the desert for scrapping.

Does the depreciated value of the aircraft at the time play a part? I imagine if the estimate of what it's going to cost to do a check or a modification in the case of tank inerting is more then the current value of the aircraft the work won't be done & the aircraft is scrapped?
