AMAC Aerospace is pleased to announce it has been awarded several new maintenance projects. A privately-owned Bombardier Global XRS will undergo a partial cabin interior refurbishment, an ADSB-Out installation and an avionics upgrade to Primus Elite while a privately-owned Airbus ACJ319 will benefit from a Ka-band system installation. AMAC is also currently receiving many requests for aircraft disinfection.

The privately-owned Bombardier Global XRS arrived at the end of February at AMAC Aerospace's facility in Basel, Switzerland. AMAC will conduct a 120 month inspection and carry out a partial cabin interior refurbishment as well as an avionics upgrade to Primus Elite and an ADSB-Out installation. The refurbishment will comprise the re-work of the seats, divans and carpet according to the customer's requirements.

“We are very proud to have received this project and are eager to prove once more our dedication to detail in our workshops. We look forward to bringing to life the concept of our customer by using fine materials and installing the latest technologies,” says Christian Hackhausen, senior supervisor aircraft maintenance and supervisor of the project.

AMAC has also been able to sign a new contract with an Airbus ACJ318. The Middle East customer will bring the aircraft by the end of this summer. “Despite the challenging times we are all going through, be it the logistical or manpower issues, we are working hard to implement all our customers' requests and to deliver the running projects with as short a ground time as possible. Currently, we are receiving many requests for aircraft disinfection, mostly on short notice, which we are happy to carry out for our customers and partners,” explains Alexis Ott, director maintenance sales and key account management.

Additionally AMAC Aerospace has been awarded new maintenance projects on two Airbus ACJ319 aircraft. A privately-owned Airbus ACJ319 will enter AMAC's hangar in April to undergo 6, 12 and 24 month checks. A second privately-owned Airbus ACJ319 will undergo 6 and 12 month checks including an ADSB-Out installation in April as well. In addition, a Ka-band system for incomparable onboard connectivity will be installed by AMAC's skilled technicians.

A Bombardier Global 6000 will also arrive in Basel in April for 15 and 30 month checks. Within a 1,000 hour check AMAC will carry out Service Bulletins tasks on the privately-owned aircraft of the new client.
