Notes to answerer
Asker: thanks, I think this is the one but let's just wait a little more for more suggestion.
4 hrs confidence:
(aircradft) maintenance check
Explanation: This is all I can come up with without any more context:). Aircraft maintenance engineers usually perform maintenance checks on aircraft. When I saw "passage au banc", I immediatelly thought "bench inspection", but this might depend on the rest of the text. Is it a title? Is it part of a sentence? Is it describing a maintenance engineer's tasks? Context, context, context:)
Aircraft maintenance checks - Aerospace Dictionary and Research Guide- Aircraft maintenance checks are periodic checks that have to be done on all aircraft after a certain amount of time.
