Global 6000 maintenance is a milestone for TAG
A privately owned Global 6000 recently underwent its first heavy check at TAG's Geneva maintenance centre. It was a first for the technical team too, whose Bombardier ASF has been extended to cover Global jets.
TAG Aviation undertakes its first 60-month check on a Global 6000.

TAG Aviation’s maintenance services centre in Geneva has completed its first 60-month check on a Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft. The aircraft is owned by a private customer and its first heavy maintenance check also included routine inspections and repairs as well as a deep cabin clean.

This major maintenance milestone event marks the first time TAG Geneva’s technicians have performed a 60-month inspection on a Global 6000 aircraft since its status as a Bombardier authorised service facility (ASF) was extended in May 2018 to also include Global business jets. TAG Aviation Europe president maintenance and FBO services Franck Madignier says: “We look forward to welcoming future operators of Bombardier Global aircraft and pride ourselves on developing relationships with aircraft manufacturers and suppliers and to meeting maintenance programme deliveries on time for each one of our valued customers.”

TAG Geneva’s maintenance services centre is a multi-original equipment manufacturer (OEM) including Dassault Falcon. It provides line maintenance for Global Express, Global Express XRS and Global 5000 aircraft, as well as Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft equipped with the Bombardier Vision flight deck. TAG’s other maintenance bases in Le Bourget and at Farnborough airport have been Bombardier ASFs since 2013 and 2006 respectively.
