AMAC Aerospace, the Swiss VIP completions and maintenance specialist based in Basel, recently welcomed a wide-body aircraft belonging to an esteemed client to its facility. The technicians of AMAC will install an onboard connectivity system on the aircraft. In addition, a Boeing BBJ 737 will be equipped with a Ka-band antenna and will undergo due maintenance.

AMAC’s Boeing team will also install a Gogo 2Ku inflight system on a wide body aircraft. The connectivity solution from Gogo delivers more bandwidth with significantly more high-speed internet in the entire cabin and superior performance connectivity in the sky. The system comprises two antennas, one for the forward link, which transmits data to the aircraft, and another antenna for the return link, which receives the data.

“We realise that perfect onboard connectivity is very important for our customers. With our existing STC capabilities, we are happy to offer our customers an incomparable and high-speed internet experience on their aircraft,” says Eric Hoegen, director of completion sales and key account management.

AMAC also welcomed a privately-owned Boeing BBJ 737 for a 12-year inspection in mid-October. The so-called D-check is by far the most comprehensive and demanding check for an aircraft as more or less the entire aircraft is taken apart for inspection and overhaul. A second privately-owned Boeing BBJ 737 is also expected for due maintenance when aircraft will be equipped with a Ka-band antenna. Alexis Ott, director maintenance sales and key account management, confirms the continuous demand: “More and more customers want to enjoy the same connectivity on board as they are used to their homes. We are happy to make it happen.”
