AOG (Aircraft On Ground)

Aircraft on ground or AOG is a term in aviation maintenance indicating that a problem is serious enough to prevent an aircraft from flying. Generally, there is a rush to acquire the parts to put the aircraft (A/C) back into service and prevent further delays or cancellations of the planned itinerary. Taking an aircraft out of service can lead to massive financial consequences. Worldwide research has estimates that an AOG can cost as much as 925,000 Euro per day. AOG applies to any aviation materials or spare parts that are needed immediately for an aircraft to return to service. This applies not only to commercial aircraft but also to helicopters or military aircraft. The term AOG also is used to describe critical shipments for parts or materials for an aircraft ``out of service`` or OTS at a location.
