Nomad travels to Malaga to fix AOG Challenger
An aircraft going AOG is far from ideal for both operator and owner. When Nomad got the call from Bombardier that a CL650 was down in Malaga, the team responded quickly and efficiently to source and install spares.
The Nomad Technics team returned from Malaga to Basel onboard the dedicated Bombardier Response Team Challenger 300.

Nomad Technics recently provided AOG support to an operator of a Bombardier Challenger 650 at the International airport of Malaga, Spain.

The company received an AOG call from Bombardier that a customer's Challenger 650 was in a non-flyable condition at Malaga. The aircraft manufacturer dispatched a dedicated ‘Bombardier Mobile Response Team’ Challenger 300 to Basel to fly a technician and tools to Malaga the same evening. Repair work started immediately after landing with the hydraulic leak on the landing gear located. Spare parts were ordered the following morning. A second mechanic arrived in Malaga from Switzerland with special tools and test equipment that afternoon to further proceed with the repair. After successful tests the aircraft could return to service and was handed over to the satisfied customer by theevening.

“We are proud that we have completed the AOG event on the Challenger 650 with an extremely short reaction time during one weekend,” says VP and general manager Roman Hug.

“Thanks to the flexibility of the engineers and the short communication channels we could rectify the defect to the full satisfaction of the customer,” adds executive chairman Heinz Koehli.

Nomad Technics AG, the maintenance division of Nomad Aviation AG, is an EASA Part 145 approved organisation and provides maintenance inspection and non-routine repair work on Bombardier Challenger 600, 850 series, Bombardier Global XRS, Global 5000, Global 6000 and Embraer Legacy 600 and 650 business jets.

The company occupies its own 7,400 sqm hangar together with 7,000 sqm of additional ramp space at the International EuroAirport in Basel / Switzerland, where it offers also hangarage services for aircraft up to the size of the Boeing 737 series and the Airbus A320 family.
