At AEROAFFAIRES, we work on a daily basis to find solutions for our customers in the face of various obstacles. Among these concerns, in both commercial and business aviation, are incidents such as AOG. This abbreviation stands for “Aircraft On Ground”. It means in this case that the aircraft is unable to take off. We explain what these AOGs are, and how AEROAFFAIRES can help.
What is an AOG?
An AOG is a term in aeronautics that means an aircraft cannot take off because a problem has occurred. These problems can be due to several causes and for factors as diverse as varied. They can occur on any type of aircraft, a commercial aircraft, a private jet, etc… An AOG can occur if there is maintenance to be performed on an aircraft (whether scheduled or not), but also for the change of a defective part on the aircraft to be replaced or because of a technical problem occurred at the last moment. In all these cases, an emergency maintenance intervention is planned and in the meantime, the aircraft is not allowed to fly.
Unfortunately, these problems can occur at any time, and without warning, as they say, the hazards of live! However, in business aviation, the stakes are higher because your flight on demand may be compromised due to unforeseen circumstances that AEROAFFAIRES cannot necessarily foresee. However, we will find a solution as quickly as possible to ensure that your flight goes ahead at all costs.
