Podcast: Dealing With Parts Supply and Logistics Challenges

Aug. 2, 2021

Business aircraft operators are increasingly having to deal with parts shortages and logistical bottlenecks. While COVID-19 has certainly contributed to the situation, there are several reasons why these issues may linger for the foreseeable future. “We’re just in a unique situation in the world as a whole,” said NBAA Maintenance Committee member Peter Stodolski. “There are times you have to take a different avenue that you’re not accustomed to [in order] to get a part or component that you need.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with NBAA Maintenance Committee members:

  • Peter Stodolski, assistant maintenance director for a flight operation in the Northeastern U.S.
  • Nathan Winkle, president and founder, Thoroughbred Aviation
  • Ian Young, chief of maintenance, Executive Jet Management
