Jet Aviation performs concurrent GV C-Checks
Customers appreciate Jet Aviation's expertise with major inspections and regularly combine scheduled maintenance with other service offerings. Hence its latest challenge; undertaking two GV heavy inspections at the same time.
As an authorised service centre, Jet Aviation's maintenance centre in Dubai supports the full line of Gulfstream business jets.

Jet Aviation has successfully performed two simultaneous 192-month C-Checks on Gulfstream GVs at its maintenance facility in Dubai South. Both checks were combined with a number of service bulletins and the aircraft were then redelivered to two separate customers.

The 192-month C-Check is a heavy inspection that requires the majority of the aircraft's components to be inspected. To take advantage of the downtime, both C-Checks on the GV deliveries were combined with a number of service bulletins, including double engine changes and minor refurbishments, with rather extensive maintenance structural corrosion repairs on one of the aircraft.

“Undertaking two projects of this magnitude at once is a considerable task that requires great skill and organisation,” says vice president of regional operations in the Middle East and general manager of Dubai Hardy Butschi. “Thousands of man-hours were dedicated to completing the two projects in a timely manner to both customers' great satisfaction. Combining scheduled inspections with other service offerings is our way of delivering the highest benefit to our customers.”

Jet Aviation's maintenance facility in Dubai has been operating a D-1-rated NDT shop since 2015, and currently performs eddy-current testing, fluorescent penetrant inspections and ultrasonic testing.

Jet Aviation also supports a fully-staffed line maintenance station at Al Maktoum International airport in Dubai South and the team recently supported a grounded aircraft in Malabo, Republic of Equatorial Guinea.
