AMAC demonstrates unscheduled request flexibility
AMAC has a number of projects on the go at the moment, among them are short notice, urgent support requests as well as maintenance checks for a head of state client.
AMAC Aerospace is chalking up plenty of new Gulfstream business in Basel.
Read this story in our December 2019 printed issue.

Basel, Switzerland-based AMAC Aerospace has been awarded three new maintenance projects on Gulfstream aircraft: it will welcome a head of state Gulfstream G550 in December 2019 for an annual check; a new customer has signed a contract for a privately-owned aircraft to undergo a 6- and 12-month inspection, arriving in the next couple of weeks; and it is carrying out a 72-month inspection on a privately owned G550.

A head of state Airbus A319 had some troubles during its flight missions and AMAC has been contracted for AOG support on short notice. Additionally an Airbus ACJ 318 will shortly enter AMAC’s hangar for a 1A and an Out Of Phase task.

In response to a call for urgent replacement of a windshield on a Gulfstream G550, AMAC was able to accept the aircraft into its hangar just a few hours later and technicians underwent a double windshield replacement during a night shift so as to release it back into operation the next day.

A head of state Gulfstream G550 will undergo a heavy base maintenance by mid November, while a second Gulfstream G550 is undergoing a base maintenance check.

A contract for a C-Check on a Boeing BBJ 737 has also been signed for the beginning of January. Besides base maintenance, it will undergo a cabin refurbishment with replacement of a carpet, a side panel recovery and several cabin touch-ups.

A privately-owned Boeing BBJ 737 entered the hangar last week to undergo a 1A, 2A, 4A Check, during which time AMAC will install an ADS-B Out and a CPDLC (Controller-Pilot Data Link Communication) FANS system.
