Basel, Sitzerland. April 2020. AMAC Aerospace has got several new maintenance projects. A privately-owned Bombardier Global XRS will undergo a partial cabin interior refurbishment, an ADSB-Out installation and an avionics upgrade to Primus Elite. On a privately-owned Airbus ACJ319, a Ka-Band system will be installed. AMAC currently also receives many requests for aircraft disinfection.
The privately-owned Bombardier Global XRS arrived at the end of February at AMAC Aerospace in Basel, Switzerland. AMAC will conduct a 120-month inspection and carry out a partial cabin interior refurbishment as well as an avionics upgrade to Primus Elite and an ADSB-Out installation. The refurbishment will comprise the re-work of the seats, divans and carpet according to the customer’s requirements.
“We are very proud to have received this project and are eager to prove once more our dedication to the details in our workshops. We look forward to bringing to life the concept of our customer by using fine materials and installing the latest technologies”, said Christian Hackhausen, Senior Supervisor Aircraft Maintenance and supervisor of the project.
AMAC was able to sign a new contract with an Airbus ACJ318. The Middle East customer will bring the aircraft by the end of this summer. “Despite the challenging times we are all going through, be it the logistical or man-power issues, we are working hard to implement all our customers’ requests and to deliver the running projects with as much a short ground time, as possible. Currently, we receive many requests for aircraft disinfection, mostly on short notice, which we are happy to carry out for our customers and partners”, explains Alexis Ott, Director Maintenance Sales & Key Account Management.
AMAC Aerospace was awarded new maintenance projects on two Airbus ACJ319 aircraft. A privately-owned Airbus ACJ319 will enter AMAC’s hangar doors in April to undergo a 6-, 12- and 24-month check. A second privately-owned Airbus ACJ319 will undergo a 6- and 12-month check including an ‘ADSB-Out’ installation in April as well. In addition, a Ka-Band system for an incomparable on-board connectivity will be installed by AMAC’s skilled technicians.
