About this title

The majority of material collected in the pages of this text was extracted from a report prepared for the United States of America Department of Defense by United Airlines Corporation personnel. The report was written by two of United Airlines leading maintenance experts, F. Stanley Nowlan and Howard F. Heap. In the 30 years since its release for public use, no one has come up with a more logical and organized approach to deciding what maintenance to perform to assure achieving maximum reliability from a given design of equipment.
