RUAG MRO International has fulfilled avionics and cabin interior upgrades on a Bombardier Challenger 604 at its aircraft maintenance facilities at Munich-Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. The project ensured compliance with the ADS-B Out 2020 mandate and included the installation of cabin interior LED lighting.
The owner of the Challenger 604 opted to integrate an ADS-B Out avionics upgrade in order to comply with EASA's 2020 mandate, which is set to go into effect on 7 June. The team also fulfilled cabin modifications on the aircraft during the same downtime, saving the owner time and costs.
RUAG’s in-house engineering and cabin interior shops ensured the project was completed on time and according to customer specifications. In addition to the integration of ADS-B Out avionics on the flight deck, the engineering team developed a minor modification for the upgrade and replacement of ageing LED lighting. The owner also used the downtime to refresh the cabin interior.
“Aircraft availability for continuous and profitable operations is a priority for our customers. We’re keen to ensure their aircraft are equipped and ready for a smooth transition on the EASA 2020 mandate target date,” states Christian Karl, head of sales, business jets. “Our one-stop shop approach to aircraft services combines with our team’s expertise in Bombardier business aircraft to provide our business jet community with reliable support and the benefits of optimised downtimes.”
