Switzerland’s TAG Aviation has completed its first 60-month check on a Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft.
The aircraft, which is owned by a private customer, underwent its first heavy maintenance check at TAG Aviation’s Maintenance Services Centre in Geneva. The check included routine inspections and repairs, as well as a deep clean of the cabin.
This important major maintenance milestone event marks the first time TAG Geneva’s highly trained technicians have performed a 60-month inspection on a Global 6000 aircraft since its status as a Bombardier Authorized Service Facility (ASF) was extended in May 2018 to also include Global business jets.
“As a recently Authorized Service Facility for Global aircraft, we are proud to have completed our first 60-month maintenance event on a Global 6000 aircraft,” said Franck Madignier, president maintenance and FBO services, TAG Aviation Europe
“We look forward to welcoming future operators of Bombardier Global aircraft and pride ourselves on developing relationships with aircraft manufacturers and suppliers and to meeting maintenance program deliveries on time.”
TAG Geneva’s Maintenance Services Centre provides line maintenance for Global Express, Global Express XRS and Global 5000 aircraft, as well as Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft equipped with the Bombardier Vision flight deck.
The company’s other maintenance bases at Le Bourget and Farnborough Airport have been Bombardier ASFs since 2013 and 2006, respectively.
