RUAG MRO International, the OEM of the Dornier 228, has completed a 72-month inspection on Bangladesh Navy’s (BN) Dornier 228-212 special-mission aircraft.
The MRO event was fulfilled on time and within budget at the OEM’s aircraft production facilities in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany.
The aircraft has now resumed regular operations. In a special arrangement, RUAG MRO International’s technical specialists welcomed BN maintenance technicians, enabling additional training intended to expand the BN team’s work experience.
“We are pleased to welcome back our Dornier 228 after this successful heavy inspection and have already deployed it to continue our mission of surveillance and patrol flights in the protection of our sovereign waters,” said Commodore Zahir, director of purchase at BN. “We are also proud to welcome back our Oversee Team from their opportunity on the ground at RUAG’s production centre.”
