The paper on the topic The importance of aircraft maintenance for operator deals with the maintenance of aircraft at smaller operators. Maintenance is an important part of the operation of aircraft, and therefore we have created a work in which we pay detailed attention to the overall maintenance of the aircraft. The introductory chapter of the paper reveals to the reader the history of aircraft maintenance from its beginnings, during the first attempts of the Wright brothers, through the First World War, the Second World War to the current maintenance. The second chapter is the main part of the work and the work describes the general maintenance performed on aircraft around the world. In this chapter, we paid attention to the accuracy of the terms and we wanted to bring the reader valuable information that can be used further. In the introductory subchapters, we focus mainly on structural maintenance, followed by the maintenance of components that are located on the aircraft and last but not least, the type of maintenance performed on the aircraft. The chapter concludes with the maintenance review itself and selected maintenance checks. In the third chapter we deal with service and overhaul of aircraft. The subchapters contain information on maintenance planning, maintenance processes and problems that may occur during maintenance. The fourth chapter deals with the selected type of aircraft, namely the Piper PA-28R, where the reader can find general information about the aircraft, but also information about technical parameters. In the last part of the work, we focused on the practical part, in which we worked on a detailed analysis of the comparison of the two sectors. From the sources of information, we tried to conscientiously choose those that will enrich the work and give the reader sufficient knowledge about the paper.
