AMAC Aerospace’s facility in Basel, Switzerland has been awarded new projects including the installation of ADS-B Out and CPDLC-FANS on a privately owned BBJ 737.
The company also has three new maintenance contracts for Gulfstream aircraft – including a G550 in for a 72-month inspection; a privately owned aircraft in for a 6- and 12-month inspection; and a head-of-state G550 due at the Basel facility in December 2019 for an annual check. Other planned work includes base maintenance on two head-of-state G550s, both due in November 2019.
The company also provided AOG support to several aircraft recently, including a head-of-state ACJ319. The company also contracted an ACJ318 for a 1A and an out-of-phase task. AMAC also received a call for the urgent replacement of a G550’s windshield. Thanks to the immediate reaction and response of AMAC’s managers and supervisors, the G550 was welcomed a few hours later in Basel. The technicians underwent a double windshield replacement during a night shift and the G550 was released the next day for operations.
The company has also signed two new BBJ 737 projects. A privately owned BBJ 737 arrived at AMAC’s hangar in Basel to undergo a 1A, 2A and 4A check, plus the installation of ADS-B Out and CPDLC FANS systems. Another BBJ 737 is due in January for a C-check plus a cabin refurbishment that will include the replacement of carpet, repairs to a side panel and several other cabin touch-ups.
