AMAC continues to receive Airbus and Boeing in Basel
It is very rare that a month will go by without a full maintenance workload for AMAC Aerospace. A pair of Challengers, two BBJ737s and two more ACJ's are currently occupying its Swiss facilities.
Purpose-built business jet airliners are the most luxurious way to experience business aviation.

AMAC Aerospace has been awarded a maintenance contract for a head of state Challenger 605, which will undergo at 12-month inspection in Basel, Switzerland.

AMAC has also been awarded further maintenance projects on two Boeing aircraft. A privately-owned Boeing BBJ737 arrived at the end of May in Basel for a 6A-check and due maintenance. In conjunction with the maintenance checks, AMAC will also carry out Service Bulletin tasks on the aircraft. On a second Boeing BBJ737, AMAC’s maintenance team will carry out one-, six- and 48-month checks on the privately-owned aircraft.

An ACJ320 also recently arrived at Basel, where AMAC will complete a base maintenance check and carry out a full galley heating system modification. Due to the extension of the project, the privately-owned aircraft has to remain six weeks longer than planned to be equipped with a new heating system. On a second Airbus ACJ318, AMAC will perform a maintenance check and an avionics upgrade.
