D-1 for the future Direction de la maintenance aéronautique (DMAé). The creation of this new French joint armed forces entity had been announced at the launch of the aviation operational readiness (MCO) plan by the Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly, on 11th December. While the name of the person who will be leading this unit has not yet been revealed officially, everything appears to be in place to take over from the SIMMAD (the French Ministry of Defence's Integrated aviation equipment operational condition maintenance structure.

According to our information, Monique Legrand-Larroche will be taking command of the DMAé. "Her role is to run the DMAé", the Ministry told us. Currently operations director at the DGA, she works closely with the Armed Forces Minister. The two women had the opportunity to take a look at things in January and should be meeting again to set the final details before the official launch.

"The structure will be based on project ownership to be able to negotiate contracts with industry players within an end to end logic and avoid splitting up responsibilities", a ministerial source told us.

Yet there should be no expectations for immediate results: "There won't be a sharp increase in availability rate 24 hours later, but we're laying the foundations", we were told, with the objective of hoping for "tangible progress within an achievable time frame", as vague as that may sound.
