Comlux's completion and service centre in Indianapolis, Comlux Completion, has been maintaining a steady stream of large VIP aircraft such as ACJs and BBJs. During 2018, the company gained four new operators including three BBJs based in the US and one BBJ2 based in the Middle East. Comlux has simultaneously worked on two VIP completions on a BBJ and an A330-200 while gearing up for the arrival of the first ever BBJ MAX 8 completion and ACJ320neo.
The facility is an approved Airbus and Boeing outfitter, an ASC for ACJs and a warranty and repair centre 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 Venue cabin management system, for which Comlux and Collins Aerospace signed a general terms agreement.
Comlux Completion launched Comlux 3.0 at the end of 2017, an initiative to advance its ‘Engineering Luxury’ mission statement through technology equipment, employee training and R&D investments. On the services side, the programme includes digital maintenance tools for paperless operations for task cards and part tracking efforts through wireless tablets and bar code scanners.
“We provide 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,” states CEO Daron Dryer. “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, and we have consistently proven that we are not only one of the leading centres of VIP completions, but we have now established ourselves as an industry leader in providing VIP maintenance services worldwide.”
