Busy first quarter for AMAC Aerospace


AMAC Aerospace has plenty of maintenance projects underway or lined up for Q1 2017, on privately owned BBJ and A319 aircraft.

January 2017 has already seen the company conduct an annual maintenance check –including A, B1 and B2 checks – on a BBJ 2. Other contracts include a BBJ 1 annual maintenance check that will include changing the cabin oxygen system from a liquid-based to a chemical-based system. Meanwhile, an existing private customer has tasked the company with conducting C1, C2 and C4 checks and a landing gear overhaul on a BBJ 2, within a reduced ground time; and a new customer has entrusted their BBJ 3 to AMAC for a C1 check.

The company has also seen a lot of demand for work on A319s. One arrived at the facility at the end of January 2017 for a C1 check, service bulletins and cabin interior work within a reduced ground time. Two other A319s are also at the site for annual inspections. A new customer has also selected AMAC to conduct a C-Check on an A319.

In addition, recent contract wins include a heavy C-Check, cabin work and a landing gear overhaul package for an A320; a BBJ 1 for which AMAC will perform maintenance and minor cabin modifications on behalf of a new operator from China; and a BBJ 1 that will undergo a C-Check and major aircraft system rectifications, for a new European operator. Finally, following a heavy maintenance check on a B737 Classic, AMAC will work in close partnership with Boeing to perform structural repair work on the aircraft’s fuselage.
