The company has welcomed a Head of State Boeing BBJ 747 on short notice to undergo an unscheduled maintenance input in Basel.

In June, AMAC Aerospace completed several maintenance projects. After a double engine change and a ‘PPI’ (Pre-Purchase Inspection), AMAC could successfully release a Gulfstream G450 in Basel, Switzerland.

The company was also able to release two more aircrafts during this time period; a Head of State Boeing BBJ 737 base maintenance check was completed ahead schedule and to customer’s full satisfaction

Another maintenance project on a Boeing BBJ 777 was completed successfully in early June. The Head of State aircraft could leave Basel for its missions on time. In addition to an accomplished C-Check, AMAC’s dedicated licensed engineers and mechanics carried out major repairs and a partial cabin refurbishment. AMAC’s teams worked in three shifts to deliver the Boeing BBJ 777 on time and to customer’s full satisfaction.

As of mid-June, AMAC Aerospace successfully redelivered a Global 6000; the privately-owned Global 6000 underwent a 4C-Check and a 6-month check inspection. After the maintenance input, a registration change was performed before redelivering the Global 6000 to AMAC’s client. 

Several new maintenance projects have been awarded to AMAC Aerospace: It opened its hangar doors in June for a Global 5000. The privately-owned Bombardier aircraft is undergoing a 2’200 hours due maintenance with SB’s (Service Bulletins).

AMAC Aerospace shall carry out a 15-month inspection in conjunction with a 500 hours inspection on the privately-owned Global 5000. On a Bombardier Global 5000, AMAC Aerospace had to carry out an AOG onsite maintenance support.

A Boeing BBJ 737 arrived mid-June iand the company will carry out an annual check on the Head of State aircraft.

A privately-owned Airbus ACJ 318 will undergo a basic inspection and a weekly check. In combination with the maintenance check, AMAC Aerospace will replace the full cabin carpet of the A318. The aircraft will arrive mid of July. “We are proud to welcome another cabin modification project in our hangars in Basel, Switzerland. Modifications have generally increased over the years, for example last year, in 2018, AMAC conducted 16 STC’s and 212 minor cabin modifications.” said Eric Hoegen, director completion sales & key account management. 

AMAC Aerospace signed a contract for a maintenance project on an Airbus A318. The privately-owned aircraft will arrive by end of July and AMAC’s technicians will carry out a 6-, 12-, 18- and 36-month inspection. Besides the Airbus A318, AMAC will welcome an Airbus A319 for a 6-, 12- and 24- month inspection. In conjunction the A319 will undergo an ‘OOP’ (Out of Phase) task.
