AMAC Aerospace awarded with new maintenance contracts

Posted 27 July 2018 · Add Comment

Swiss company AMAC Aerospace has been awarded with a new maintenance contract on a head-of-state A320 aircraft and will perform a major base maintenance input on a privately-owned A340-600 aircraft.

 

Besides a C-Check, that will be performed on the narrow-body, AMAC will also upgrade the existing IFE (inflight entertainment system) with the improvement to stream HD content to the passengers’ personal electronic devices, such a mobile tablets and phones.

A KA-band system, adding seamless broadband connectivity to the cabin, will also be installed by AMAC on the head-of-state aircraft, which will enter AMAC’s hangar doors in October 2018. The A320 type will be added to the comprehensive portfolio of existing STCs (Supplemental Type Certificates), which enables an economical re-use advantage for other A320 owners and operators, who are interested in KA-band installations.

A major base maintenance input will be performed by AMAC Aerospace on a privately-owned A340-600 aircraft.

This maintenance contract that has been awarded to AMAC by an existing client includes, a C-check and a landing gear overhaul in conjunction with a major cabin removal. AMAC Aerospace will also carry out the mandatory FTIS (fuel tank inerting system) installation according to Airbus’ service bulletins (SB). FTIS improves aircraft safety by reducing the volatility of the ullage, or air volume above the fuel, in an aircraft fuel tank. As fuel is consumed during flight, the fuel level in the tank is lowered and the remaining oxygen in the ullage is replaced by non-flammable inert gas. Reducing oxygen in the fuel tank prevents combustion in the tank, even if a spark would be present. The FTIS technology includes state-of-the-art membrane gas separators, which reduces the oxygen concentration on the air entering the fuel tank.

“By having performed FTIS installations on a number of Airbus narrow and wide- body aircraft, we have extensive experience and know-how and are happy to demonstrate this to our esteemed A340-600 customer” said Eric Hoegen, Director Completion Sales and Key Account Management, AMAC Aerospace.
