AMAC Aerospace has announced its latest round of business jet maintenance projects. In particular, the company noted growing demand for ADSB-Out installations.
One BBJ recently arrived in Basel, Switzerland, to undergo an annual check and an ADSB-Out system installation. Two further Boeing aircraft are slated for ADSB-Out installations – a B737-NG scheduled to arrive in January 2021 for a 24-, 36- and 72-month check; and a BBJ 747 to arrive in March 2021 for a 6-, 12- and 24-month check.
“In these exceptional times for the aviation industry, AMAC is glad to have a stable order book outlook, for the immediate future,” said Alexis Ott, director of maintenance sales and key account management. “We regularly carry out work on-site and sign new contracts for maintenance projects.”
AMAC, a Bombardier-authorised service facility, has also signed several new maintenance projects for Bombardier jets. A Challenger 605 will undergo a 500-hour APU inspection; 6-, 12-, 24- and 48-month check; and 400-, 600- and 1,200-hours check.
As announced previously, AMAC will install a Ka-band system on a Global 6000. The owner commissioned a 60-month inspection, to be carried out after a Ka-band antenna is installed.
At short notice, AMAC recently welcomed a Challenger 300 in Basel, on which its Bombardier team will carry out annual maintenance. Another project entails completing an out-of-phase task and 6-month inspection on an ACJ319.
In other news, AMAC passed a surveillance audit for the ISO 45001 certification. The international standard sets out requirements for occupational health and safety management systems.
“This is the result of a day-to-day engagement by all AMAC employees in all relevant health and safety at work matters,” said Philippe Schurrer, director of safety and security and facility management at AMAC. “We thank all our teams for the support and active participation.”
