Aircraft On Ground

CLOSE X

 

"Aircraft on Ground" (AOG) is a specialist aviation term that is used when a plane is suffering from a problem severe enough to render it unable to fly.

Aviation Aftermarket Logistics

CLOSE X

 

The aviation market is one of the most cost-heavy business areas in which to operate. Every moment an aircraft is on ground  (AOG) and rendered unable to fly, results in huge losses.
