RUAG's C-Check project to include ADS-B Out upgrade
RUAG is determined to spare customers the expense and stress of last-minute applications to meet EASA compliance. It has integrated the upgrade with a 3C check on a Falcon, and urges others to follow suit.
RUAG's new, optimised Falcon 900 C-Check project includes the ADS-B Out upgrade.

RUAG MRO International has a new contract for a 3C check on a Dassault Falcon 900LX at its business jet support facilities at Geneva-Meyrin, Switzerland. The returning customer has chosen to optimise the heavy maintenance check to include an avionics upgrade to comply with the EASA mandate on ADS-B Out, as well as a partial cabin refurbishment.

The aircraft is set to arrive at the RUAG site in September 2019. In addition to the avionics upgrade for compliance with the 2020 mandate, which is due on 7 June, the 3C-check project also includes a partial cabin refurbishment in the scope of work. All services are scheduled to take place during the one downtime. RUAG sees the advantage in this one-stop shop approach, citing that the customer is able to benefit from more prolonged time in the air for profitable, scheduled operations.

“Optimising heavy maintenance checks, like this 3C-check, allows our customers to save on both time and costs,” explains RUAG MRO International managing director for the Lugano and Geneva sites Stephan Woodtli. “Planning the inspection together with the additional aircraft services streamlines the processes and ultimately allows our customer's aircraft to keep flying profitably for longer.”

A Dassault authorised service centre, RUAG is actively encouraging its Falcon customers to equip their aircraft for compliance with the EASA ADS-B Out mandates during heavy maintenance checks. “We are dedicated to ensuring our customers' safe operations, as well as their continued airworthiness,” continues Woodtli. “The 7 June, 2020 deadline is approaching fast. We want to make sure our customers have what they need, when they need it.”
