Learning from our Mistakes?

We have recently seen huge challenges in delivering new aircraft and engines: are we rushing new technology to market before it is ready? What lessons have been learned from these problems and delays? Recent entry-into-service challenges and unscheduled maintenance on some of the newer engines has meant unexpected workload and higher unscheduled removals than anticipated – how is the industry coping with this? Is the capacity available in supply base? Considering the impacts of the delay of MAX on values, retirements, existing fleet, parked fleet and new production as well as the CFM56-5B/7B and V2500 markets
