AMAC Aerospace has signed several new contracts, including one that will see the company perform a cabin interior enhancement, cabin modification and base maintenance check on a head-of-state BBJ 747, at its site in Basel, Switzerland. The company also signed a contract to update the cabin lighting on a Gulfstream GIV – replacing the existing lighting with an LED system.
The company also signed a contract to conduct a six-year inspection on a head-of-state ACJ340. The work involves full cabin removal and rectification, and the installation of a Ka-band system. The STC developed for the latter will be re-usable for other ACJ340 customers. The aircraft is due to arrive in November 2019.
Other newly contracted projects include a 12-year inspection and landing gear overhaul for a head-of-state ACJ340, and a C-check and ADS-B Out installation on a BBJ 737. Both aircraft arrived in Basel in September 2019. AMAC is also conducting an annual base maintenance check on a head-of-state McDonnell Douglas MD-87. In addition, the company won the contract to perform base maintenance checks on an ACJ319 and an ACJ320 for a head of state; the first of these is due to arrive in October 2019.
The company has maintenance projects ongoing on privately owned aircraft including four B737s, an A319, a Gulfstream GV, a Gulfstream G450, a Bombardier Challenger 350 and a Bombardier Global 5000. A BBJ 737 is also scheduled for a base maintenance check, and a head-of-state customer has brought his G550 to Basel for an annual check. Meanwhile, the company’s recent AOG projects saw teams sent to a BBJ 737 in Zurich, Switzerland, a G550 in Portugal, and an ACJ340 in Munich, Germany.
AMAC Aerospace also redelivered three aircraft recently: a head-of-state Bombardier Challenger 605 following an intensive work package within a reduced ground time; a head-of-state BBJ 747 after a base maintenance check; and a BBJ 737 from Asia after a heavy base maintenance check and ADS-B Out modification.
The company also exhibited at the MEBAA Show for the first time. The event was held in Marrakech, Morocco, on 25-26 September 2019.
