First 192-month check on a Gulfstream V for Jet Aviation in Geneva


Jet Aviation’s maintenance center in Geneva, Switzerland, recently completed its first 192-month, ultra-heavy maintenance check on a Gulfstream V.

The inspection was performed together with service bulletins and a water line ribbon heater upgrade. Extensive overhauls of all major aircraft systems and structures were performed during the inspection, including complete removal of the cabin and cargo compartments; removal of both engines and the APU; opening of the floor for fuselage skin and floor structure inspection; testing of the landing gear; and structural inspection of the wing panels.

To help reduce downtime, the MRO facility established a special team of sheet metal engineers to work three shifts throughout the day. Special arrangements were also made to reinforce the company’s normal weekend availability.
