For Adnan Hanif, who is part of our Certifying Staff team at Schiphol, the Netherlands, the High Pressure Turbine Clearance Control Valve is a component he has serviced many time before. “The HPTCC Valve is a critical part in an engine. It transfers air from the compressor to cool the turbine. This advanced technology increases fuel efficiency by controlling the thermal expansion of the turbine blades to optimize tip clearance, and also prevents rubbing on the casing. Knowing the important effect that it has on an engine, I am proud to be part of an organization that services these parts.”
Daan Eelman is a Customer Support Representative based in Hoofddorp, the Netherlands. His favorite aircraft part has been clear from as early as he can remember. "Ever since I first stepped onto an airplane as a child, I have always been fascinated with the technology behind the flight deck. My curiosity lead me to research these instruments more, and I even studied this in detail while at university. I love how everything comes together in the cockpit, with information integrated and displayed in one place so pilots can make decisions and handle different situations as safely as possible. The flight deck has evolved over the years, and to me, it’s truly iconic."
