Challenger 604 interior refurbished during heavy maintenance check at RUAG


The owner of a Bombardier Challenger 604 recently tasked RUAG Aviation’s team in Munich, Germany, with completing a full cabin refurbishment during the aircraft’s 192-month MRO inspection. The aircraft, registered in the Middle East, was delivered on time.

“Our customer relied on our one-stop-shop solutions to fulfil all the requirements of the 192-month inspection, as well as a complete cabin restyling, simultaneously,” said Mark-André Mann, head of sales, business jets, RUAG Aviation. “Their decision definitely allowed them to realize significant cost savings. Most importantly, they also saved valuable time. Our Bombardier Challenger 604 technical expertise and our specialists for cabin interior refurbishment combined their efforts, achieving the entirety of the project within just 10 weeks.”

RUAG Aviation’s in-house aircraft painting and mechanics shops supported the resolution of all findings related to the heavy maintenance check. The cabin refurbishment included all soft goods, leathers, fabrics and carpeting. “The owner was looking to effectively update and refresh a dated interior,” said Robin Freigang, director of cabin interior services and design, RUAG Aviation. “The existing cabin interior was actually in excellent condition. Yet, the more modern color scheme lightened the interior dramatically.”

The aircraft resumed scheduled operations according to plan. “We have complete confidence in RUAG Aviation’s performance on our behalf,” said the customer. “They continue to prove reliable and responsive to our needs and provide us with excellent service and support. They ensured we enjoyed complete project transparency and ongoing communications throughout the heavy maintenance check. This allowed us to plan our operations with accuracy.”
