Jet Aviation St Louis has signed its 35th 120-month inspection of a Global aircraft.
“We’re about to perform our 35th Global 120-month inspection to date, with even more on the books,” said Aaron Kreissler, sales director at Jet Aviation St Louis. “When a customer’s aircraft is opened up to the extent required for this inspection, they want it done by someone who has done it many times before. Our customers know that our experience allows us to address the known trouble spots first, and that minimizes surprises on the back end. Know-how and experience are important to customers in a project of this size.”
The inspection is required 10 years after the initial delivery and mandates the disassembly of most of the aircraft for review of the airframe and structure, including the landing gear. Cabin interiors are completely removed and refurbished or replaced. The company says many customers have their aircraft repainted during the inspection since the aircraft will be out of service anyway. Jet Aviation St Louis has a dedicated hangar for servicing Globals, and says it has all of the required capabilities in-house.
“Because we have this depth of experience and the facilities, we’re able to keep our customers’ downtime to a minimum and to deliver an extraordinary aircraft,” said Kreissler.
