Ruag conducts pre-purchase inspection on Global Express


The team at Ruag MRO International’s site at Munich-Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany, has conducted a level-three pre-purchase inspection (PPI) on a Bombardier Global Express. The work was carried out despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The buyer’s representative determined the scope of the inspection directly using Ruag’s proprietary PPI decision-making tool. Ruag says the clear selection of requirements enabled the project to proceed promptly while accurately generating the details relevant to the purchase criteria. In addition, the Ruag team enabled a seamless registration process for the new ownership, ensuring full documentation readiness for a prompt on-site acceptance by the FAA-DAR.

“It was an absolute pleasure working with the Ruag team,” said Samuel Lechtner of L&L International, the buyer’s representative. “From start to finish it was a quality process and job. Communication, know-how and responsiveness were excellent. Thanks to the team for their assistance, especially during these uncertain times. We will be back in the future with more EU projects.”

The aircraft arrived at the site during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, adding a layer of complexity to the process. “We are proud of the quality and performance we are able to deliver while still safeguarding the health of all involved,” said Christian Karl, head of sales, business jets, at Ruag MRO International. “Precise planning of this PPI project allowed our teams to proceed both reliably and safely. We can confirm that we continue to follow the recommended guidelines for protecting our customers, our employees and our business jet community.”
