RUAG MRO International has completed the full repainting of its first Gulfstream G650 in its facilities at Munich-Oberpfaffenhofen, on behalf of a third party MRO provider.

RUAG is continuing to grow its aircraft painting portfolio. Prior to this work on the G650, the specialist team had fulfilled the full exterior repainting of Gulfstream G450 and Gulfstream G550 aircraft.

Supporting customers with precision aircraft painting is a core capability within RUAG’s one-stop shop approach to aircraft MRO services. Third party MRO providers seeking to fulfill their own customers’ exterior finish requirements regularly approach RUAG for aircraft painting support. “Our specialist team has developed a reputation for reliability and excellence in aircraft painting,” says sales manager exterior services Reinhard Imhoff. “We are pleased to support our industry partners. Working with us allows them to expand the service portfolio they can provide to their customers. Our services enable them to include aircraft painting support with confidence.”

“RUAG is committed to offering reliable and sustainable aircraft MRO solutions to the business aircraft industry,” adds senior vice president business jets Volker Wallrodt.

RUAG MRO International specialises in offering one-stop shop business aircraft solutions where all required services are performed within one single downtime, suiting individual customer schedules. The comprehensive portfolio includes line, base and heavy maintenance (MRO) checks, cabin interior restyling and refurbishment, avionics and system upgrades, component services, aircraft painting, modifications, pre-purchase inspections (PPI), AOG, FBO, and support and consulting. RUAG MRO International is an official business jets OEM partner and authorised service centre for Dassault Falcon, Embraer and Piaggio, an authorised Pilatus PC-12 service centre and a service centre for Hawker Beechcraft, the Gulfstream G550 and Bombardier aircraft.
