LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Define the purpose
of the daily maintenance meeting.
Without a doubt, the best tool for ensuring a
smooth flow of information about maintenance
between shifts and other supervisors is the daily
maintenance meeting. The meeting allows all the
supervisors within your department or division to brief
the maintenance chief on the status of equipment,
components, or aircraft that currently have ongoing
work or are scheduled to have maintenance performed.
It also allows maintenance control to coordinate time
frames for sharing certain facilities, equipment, or
electrical power requirements. In addition, these
maintenance meetings may bring to the attention of the
maintenance chief specific tasks that need items of
material or equipment that may be difficult to obtain.
It may also identify certain document numbers that
require "hand massaging" by the supply chief.
The maintenance chief can use the information
obtained at the maintenance meetings to "plan ahead,"
such as obtaining support equipment that another
squadron has checked out or coordinating a time
period that the corrosion branch needs to paint or even
reassign aircraft to the flight schedule. This allows
specific maintenance to be performed on specific
Always remember that nothing happens to any
aircraft without the maintenance chiefs approval. The
maintenance chief releases the aircraft as "safe for
flight." He/she MUST know what is happening on
every aircraft at every moment.
