Comlux raises the bar for maintenance services on large VIP aircraft

Posted 4 March 2019 · Add Comment

Comlux has said Comlux Completion, its completion and service centre in Indianapolis, is raising the bar in maintenance services on large VIP aircraft such as ACJ and BBJ.

 

During the 2018 year, Comlux maintained a steady stream of recurrent maintenance clients but also gained 4 new operators including 3 BBJs based in the US and 1 BBJ2 based in the Middle East.  In parallel with the growing maintenance business, Comlux has simultaneously worked to complete 2 VIP completions on both a BBJ and an A330-200 while gearing up for the arrival of the first ever BBJ Max 8 completion and ACJ320neo.

Comlux Completion is an approved Airbus and Boeing outfitter, an Authorized Service Center for ACJ, and a Warranty and repair Center for BBJ type aircraft. On top of scheduled maintenance checks, most of the work accomplished in 2018 required several interior modifications and avionics upgrades. One BBJ was upgraded with a complete Collins Aerospace’s VenueTM cabin management system, for which Comlux and Collins Aerospace signed a general terms agreement earlier this year.

To enhance both the completion and maintenance business, Comlux Completion launched Comlux 3.0 at the end of 2017, an initiative to advance the “Engineering Luxury” mission statement through technology equipment, employee training and R&D investments.  On the services side, the program includes digital maintenance tools for paperless operations for task cards and part tracking efforts through wireless tablets and bar code scanners.

“Comlux provides clients a top of the line VIP maintenance option in the industry with a full pedigree of in-house engineering and back shop fabrication capabilities for their aircraft,” said Daron Dryer, CEO for Comlux Completion. “We aim to protect the value of the assets of our customers by performing quality maintenance and repair work in accordance with the manufacturer best practices."

He added: “We have consistently proven that we are not only one of the leading centers of VIP completions, but we have now established ourselves as an industry leader in providing VIP maintenance services worldwide.”
