Bombardier’s service center network has now completed more than 75 120-month heavy inspections on Global business jets. Chosen by governments, fractional operators and individual operators, there is an installed base of more than 700 Global aircraft worldwide. The in-service fleet has performed nearly 700,000 landings and logged nearly 2,000,000 flight hours.
The 120-month inspection is one of the largest maintenance events in the Global’s lifecycle. Due during the tenth year of service, the work involves disassembly for a detailed inspection of the airframe, structure and landing gear. The downtime can also be used to complete paint work, inflight connectivity installations, avionics modifications and interior refurbishment.
“This milestone demonstrates our experience, our expertise, and most importantly, our ability to offer our customers peace of mind, particularly when faced with one of the most critical inspections in the product’s lifecycle,” said Stan Younger, vice president, aircraft service centers, Bombardier. “As the aircraft manufacturer, no other maintenance provider comes close to the level of expertise we have on this aircraft or this inspection.”
Bombardier’s service center network is comprised of seven wholly owned facilities and 15 customer response team mobile units worldwide, all equipped to support Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft. The network is connected to Bombardier’s 24/7 customer response center and customer support team. Bombardier Business Aircraft customers also have access to a network of nearly 50 authorized service facilities.
