AMAC Aerospace has completed various aircraft maintenance projects recently at its headquarters in Basel, Switzerland. For example, the team completed a major maintenance input on an ACJ319 at the beginning of August 2019, also overhauling the landing gear and making some small interior modifications.
Interior modifications were also carried out on a Gulfstream G550, which was also in for a C-Check with service bulletins and corrosion treatment.
AMAC also recently performed maintenance tasks on two BBJ 737s. One, a head-of-state aircraft, arrived at the facility in mid-June for a heavy base maintenance check, and was redelivered on time by the end of July. The other BBJ 737 was returned to its private customer on schedule, following a base maintenance check.
AMAC also provided unscheduled maintenance for an ACJ340 and completed a minor cabin refurbishment on an ACJ318 for the same family.
Meanwhile, a privately owned BBJ 737 arrived at AMAC’s facility in Basel at the end of July for a C-check and ADS-B Out installation. Simultaneously, AMAC welcomed a G450 to undergo a pre-purchase inspection at short notice.
The company also signed new contracts that will see an MD-87 arrive in Basel in September for a major modification, and the installation of FANS and an Iridium satcom system on a BBJ 737 in November 2019. Other new maintenance contracts were awarded for two Airbus, one Boeing and one Gulfstream aircraft.
In other news, in early August, AMAC received two new requests for AOG support – and so sent teams to Zurich, Switzerland, and Africa. AMAC also says it is getting more and more requests for ADS-B Out installations. For example, two privately owned B737s arrived at the end of July for the installation, alongside small maintenance inputs. AMAC also installed ADS-B Out on an A319; the aircraft left at the beginning of August 2019.
