The number of planes at the end of life is increasing. Innovative management practice of aircraft at the end of life
can be considered as a transdisciplinary context. Moreover, regarding dynamics and multidimensionality of
aircraft recycling projects, conventional management systems cannot be sufficient and responsive. The purpose of
this paper is to address a research agenda that support various aspects of dynamics and transdisciplinarity of end of
life aircraft recycling projects (EOLARP) by a strategic conceptual framework. Four sections of the framework
including business model, market and industry, knowledge management and performance measurement make a
basis for addressing the essential issues in EOLARP business ecosystem, which needs an incorporated approach
of different disciplines and players. Further studies and works on each arena in this framework are valuable in
overcoming difficulties facing managers and strategic partners in EOLARP.
