Optimised maintenance saves time for VistaJet
The first in a series of Challenger 850 projects has been completed for VistaJet. By scheduling the work to take place during an MRO event, the company was able to save on both time and costs.
Work on the first of VistaJet's Challenger 850s has been completed by RUAG during an optimised downtime.

The first of several VistaJet MRO projects has been completed by RUAG MRO International. Its Challenger 850 underwent aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), component MRO, aircraft painting and the integration of both an avionics ADS-B Out upgrade as well as a full cabin refurbishment. VistaJet chose to optimise a scheduled MRO event on the aircraft to save on both time and costs.

The company has now delivered a second Challenger 850 to RUAG. “Every customer’s experience with RUAG must reflect that we have truly understood their priorities and that we are dedicated to contributing to their success, by ensuring their aircraft are available for scheduled operations,” says RUAG MRO International senior vice president business jets Volker Wallrodt. “Meeting a customer’s individual requirements, satisfying their expectations and enabling their business model to remain as efficient as possible, are all fundamental to our role as support provider.”

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, Gulfstream G550 and Bombardier aircraft.
