Despite ongoing international flight restrictions, the maintenance division of German business aviation company Aero-Dienst has remained continuously available for customers via its mobile repair team (MRT). Just recently a Learjet 45XR, the aircraft of long-standing customer Luxembourg Air Ambulance (LAA) was readied for worldwide air ambulance repatriation services after Aero-Dienst MRT completed an engine change.
Following remote troubleshooting, the team of three technicians was able to identify the TFE731 engine's problem together with Honeywell and LAA technicians and decided to send it to Aero-Dienst's in-house engine shop in Nuremberg for repair. Thanks to cooperation with Honeywell, Aero-Dienst was able to quickly organise a rental engine for the time of the repair and ship it to the customer base. The MRT sent to Luxembourg took over the complete engine change on-site in a short timeframe, to the satisfaction of the ambulance fleet operator.
“We are grateful to the entire Aero-Dienst team for the smooth and efficient AOG support,” says Horst Lenhard, LAA technical director. “We have been working with Aero-Dienst in airframe, engine and avionics maintenance for many years. In such special moments it is good to know that we have such a reliable partner by our side.”
