Qantas Hangar 245
In 2011, Qantas commenced the conversion of Hangar 245 at the Sydney Jet Base from a heavy maintenance hangar to a line maintenance hangar, capable of servicing a wide range of aircraft from B747 to A320.
The refurbishment involved replacing, recommissioning and installing new equipment that would efficiently ventilate the hangar while maintenance was underway.
By installing mass air flow systems to rotate the aircraft engines, the need to consume fuel in order to run the engines during aircraft maintenance was eliminated, thus providing Qantas with a financial benefit by conserving fuel.
