Despite limited circumstances due to the Covid-19 pandemic AMAC has seen no slowing of its maintenance activities. In fact, the organization welcomes a slow improvement of flight activities in business aviation.
“This shows a positive impact in our business segment”, said Alexis Ott, Director Maintenance Sales & Key Account Management.
Two Head of State aircraft were inducted in October. AMAC’s team will install a new generation of the Cockpit Voice Recorder (‘CVR’) and a Flight Data Recorder (‘FDR’) system on the first aircraft, a McDonnell Douglas MD- 87, which will undergo multiple C-checks and a landing gear overhaul. The second aircraft, a Boeing B747-8 inducted in mid October, will undergo a C-check.
An ACJ 318 and an ACJ319, both privately owned, have been inducted for avionics updates for the former and Out Of Phase (OOP) tasks for the latter, in combination with heavy based maintenance checks.
AMAC has also been selected to carry out a Pre-Purchase Inspection (PPI) on two privately owned Bombardier Global 6000. A third Bombardier Global 6000 is expected to arrive in the next few weeks. The privately owned aircraft will undergo a 500h-/1,000h-check and a 15-/30-month check.
AMAC won a project for a 24-month inspection on a Bombardier Challenger 300 in September. The customer has now commissioned AMAC to perform multiple cabin interior work on the privately owned aircraft. Finally, AMAC has been awarded an annual inspection on a Bombardier Challenger 605.
Two Boeing BBJ737 arrived in Basel, whose owner has assigned AMAC`s Boeing team to carry out two Ka-Band installations. The ground time will be used to perform base maintenance checks as well. A privately owned Boeing B787 will undergo a due 12-month check. Furthermore, AMAC will also carry out a base maintenance check on a privately- owned Gulfstream GV.
In the current COVID-19 pandemic, when safety matters even more, AMAC Aerospace is offering safe and eco-friendly aircraft cabin disinfection services for any type of aircraft at their hangars in Basel as well as in Bodrum and Istanbul, Turkey.
