A BBJ 747-8i has been released to service after its first annual maintenance inspection at AMAC Aerospace in Basel, Switzerland. This is the head-of-state aircraft that was previously outfitted by AMAC with a full VVIP cabin and delivered in July 2015. AMAC says the maintenance program was performed in a very challenging ground time. The work was completed in AMAC’s fourth hangar, which was completed in the fourth quarter of 2015.
AMAC Aerospace also recently announced the return of a BBJ 777-200 to a head of state following a maintenance program that included a C-Check and partial cabin removal.
Meanwhile, another ACJ340 has been returned to service after a maintenance input at the center. The privately owned aircraft, owned by a customer in the Middle East, underwent a C-Check and various modifications in conjunction with a partial cabin removal.
“We are extremely glad that we were in a position to redeliver the aircraft ahead of the scheduled project time considering an already very tight and challenging ground time,” said Eric Hoegen, sales and key account manager at AMAC Aerospace Switzerland. “Our teams have been fully committed to meet the customer’s operational requirements. Due to our in-house design organization approval, we were able to carry out various modifications in parallel with the maintenance program.”
AMAC Aerospace also announced three new maintenance contracts. An A319 owned by a Middle East customer will undergo a heavy maintenance C-Check, while two A320s have already entered AMAC’s facility for annual checks and C-Checks. In addition, the company won a new governmental tender involving a C-Check and cabin modifications on a Boeing aircraft.
