An A340-200 is at AMAC Aerospace’s headquarters in Basel, Switzerland, for a 12-year inspection, during which AMAC’s experts have performed a pylon inspection and therefore removed all four engines of the wide-body.
Beside the heavy maintenance checks, the aircraft has undergone a cabin modification program as well as the refurbishment of the cabin seats, furniture and the carpet, using a smart repair technique. The aircraft will be returned to service in Q2 2017.
The company has also announced another 12-year inspection contract. The inspection will be performed on an A330, which will enter AMAC’s hangar at the end of May 2017.
AMAC Aerospace also supported a European operator to make a BBJ 1 cabin compliant with commercial regulations and carried out a registration change. Beside the major aircraft system rectifications, the aircraft underwent a C-check.
