What is AOG?

AOG is an acronym used in aviation maintenance to describe an “Aircraft on Ground”, when a commercial or private aircraft experiences mechanical issues that prevent it from flying.

Once an airliner or private jet has been marked as AOG, there is a rush to acquire the necessary parts and personnel to repair the aircraft and return it to service in order to prevent further delays and cancellations.

Any parts or aviation materials immediately needed for repair are either flown, driven or shipped to the aircraft’s location, and there are several AOG suppliers who dispatch parts and service workers whenever the situation arises.

Airliners take steps to mitigate the effects by running dedicated AOG Desks, where per FAA regulations, support personnel are trained to loan and borrow parts from other air carriers. They also work in concert with their air carriers’ maintenance team to ensure all parts, materials and mechanics come together rapidly and efficiently.
