Advisory Wire In A Nutshell
We encourage you to read Bombardier Advisory Wire AW700-32-0804, Rev 1. Here are the highlights.
Global aircraft brakes are very robust and collected fleet data show they may remain on-wing for nearly 20 years before needing an overhaul or first shop visit. While this maintenance-free period sounds good, issues like corrosion and leakage may occur over time on the torque plate leading to damage to the carbon heat sink stators.
The brake assembly restoration procedure ensures the torque plate remains in good condition throughout the life of the aircraft, preventing further damage to the heat sink. The restoration also includes new seals for the adjusters.
