Tailwind Airlines has signed contracts with AMAC Aerospace for their fleet of Boeing 737-400 aircraft. In early February the first aircraft arrived for maintenance and is undergoing a C13 check at AMAC’s new facility in Bodrum, Turkey. This involves removing the majority of all exterior access panels in order to perform the required inspections. Furthermore, a full cabin removal which includes seating, side ledges, floor and ceiling panels. In addition to this the cargo bay liners have been removed, all to perform a 450 man-hour NDT inspection.

The total package will be approximately 1,400 man-hours of work not including findings during the inspections. We have a tight deadline to perform this maintenance input in 20 working days.

“It is a privilege to be involved with the launch of AMAC Aerospace’s name within the commercial airline market and reinforcing an already stable reputation in Turkey. I am confident that with our experienced team we have put in place that the quality will be high whilst still being competitive to the rest of the local and European markets.” said Tarek Muhiddin, Technical Director Special Projects of AMAC Aerospace.
