Two head-of-state aircraft arrived at AMAC Aerospace’s facility in Basel, Switzerland, at the end of July 2020. As well as an A320 in for a multiple C-check package, AMAC welcomed an ACJ340 for a two-month C-check, Ka-band connectivity installation, minor cabin modifications and several internal rectifications.
Furthermore, AMAC has signed maintenance projects for four privately owned Airbus aircraft. These include an ACJ320 that arrived in late June 2020 for a 2C-check; another ACJ320 that arrived at the end of July for a multiple C-check; and an ACJ319 that arrived in July for a 6-, 12-, 18- and 24-month check, partial cabin refurbishment and Ka-band installation. AMAC will also open its gates for a second ACJ319, due to undergo a 6-, 12- and 24-month check.
In addition, AMAC reported several Bombardier projects; it says it is welcoming more and more such work since becoming a Bombardier authorised service facility. For example, the company has now completed an 8C-check on a Global XRS that arrived at the end of February 2020. The maintenance check required the removal of the stabiliser, and while on the ground, a cabin refurbishment and avionics upgrades were completed. AMAC’s dedicated Bombardier team accomplished the project on time and on budget. The aircraft has been released to go to the paint shop.
Meanwhile, a Global Express has arrived to undergo a 750-, 1,500- and 3,000-hour inspection, ADSB-Out installation and Service Bulletin and Airworthiness Directive tasks. The aircraft underwent an 8C-check including a refurbishment at AMAC a few years ago. The company has also been awarded a project to upgrade the connectivity system on a Global 6000.
