Charter operator Acropolis Aviation has contracted Marshall Civil Aerospace as its prime maintenance contractor. It is Marshall Civil Aerospace’s first ACJ contract, and it will follow through to Acropolis’ new ACJ320neo, which is scheduled to enter service in late 2019.
The move follows Marshall’s “superb team approach and excellent work” on a major six-year check performed on G-NOAH, Acropolis’ flagship ACJ319, at Marshall’s facility in Cambridge, UK.
Marshall engineers conducted airframe inspections and removed the entire interior for inspection and overhaul, refitting it in five weeks. Aeropeople has supported Acropolis’ ACJ with line maintenance since 2010. Patrick Meyer, project manager at Aeropeople, led a specialist engineering team to inspect the aircraft’s extended range fuel tanks in the rear cargo hold. The activity extended to an upgrade of cabin furnishings, with Marshall stitching a new divan cover over a weekend. “The quality of the divan cover sewn by Marshall was as good as the original supplied by the OEM,” said Aidan Leitner-Murphy, technical director at Acropolis Aviation.
