The aim of this case is to systematize theoretical assumptions of aircraft maintenance, measure service quality and also purposefully manage them. This study objectives are to reveal the essence of a systematic approach towards the study object, to examine the theoretical potential to manage the quality of services, to etermine the outline of aircraft maintenance quality management specifics. Studies showing management functions affects on ensuring quality of aircraft maintenance were invoked to examine service quality problems.
