Nowadays, in the fleet of most Russian carriers, foreign-manufacturedaircraft predominate over those made in this country. However, only a fewaviation market players are experienced enough to perform heavy maintenanceservices such as C-Check and D-Check, which is why Russian carriers have tohave a considerable part of these services carried out abroad.
