About MMC

One Great Venue, Three Conferences. 

The Airlines Electronic Engineering Committee (AEEC) General Session, Avionics Maintenance Conference (AMC), and Mechanical Maintenance Conference (MMC) join together in one location to bring together industry experts from around the world. The AEEC General Session, AMC, and MMC provide opportunities to explore common issues and advancements in the industry through discussion and technical symposiums, and direct focus on the advancement of technical standards and committee and working group activities under the auspices of the AEEC and AMC. 

The Mechanical Maintenance Conference (MMC) is an aviation industry activity organized by ARINC Industry Activities, an SAE-ITC Program, to assist aviation interests in cooperating to develop shared technical solutions and to establish technical standards.

The Mechanical Maintenance Conference contributes to increased reliability and maintainability, which results in reduced operating costs for the airline industry. These contributions are achieved through the Mechanical Maintenance Conference (MMC) and development of technical standards.

The ARINC Standards Development Document specifies the procedures used to develop voluntary consensus-based ARINC Standards. A primary means of exchanging Mechanical Maintenance Committee information will be the annual Mechanical Maintenance Conference conducted under the auspices of the AMC.
