RUAG adds Gulfstream G550 to its MRO service portfolio

September 9, 2016

Owners and operators of Gulfstream G550 are now set to benefit from a comprehensive range of aircraft services and expertise in maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO). RUAG Aviation announces the extension of the EASA Part 145 Maintenance Organisation approvals to include line and base maintenance for the Gulfstream G550 at its facilities in Munich. This is the latest addition to RUAG Aviation’s expanded portfolio of business aviation MRO capabilities.

Gulfstream G550 customers are now afforded the opportunity of choosing a tested and proven partner for full aircraft services. RUAG Aviation confirms thorough expertise and an excellent reputation in business aviation MRO extending over 30 years. A full range of aircraft solutions and one-stop shop capabilities are now available for Gulfstream G550 aircraft at the company’s Munich location, providing optimized downtimes and reliable performance.

“The approval for the Gulfstream G550 is especially meaningful as it directly addresses feedback we received from our customers - many of whom were so pleased with our services on the other aircraft in their fleets, that they wanted us to take care of their Gulfstream G550s as well,” states André Ebach, General Manager Business Jets, RUAG Aviation. He continues, “Our customers rely on us to respond to their individual requirements. This expansion of our service portfolio allows us to provide for their growing aircraft needs while also ensuring that a new set of business aviation customers will also benefit from the complete range of services available at RUAG.”

RUAG Aviation cites the continuous dedication of resources as essential for meeting an OEM’s specific requirements, and now, specifically, Gulfstream’s. “With customer demand increasing in the large jet sector, the Gulfstream G550 is also a strategic addition to our capabilities,” explains André Ebach. “It is the aim of RUAG Aviation to continuously expand the portfolio of services available to our customers, as well as to build further on the long-term relationships we enjoy.”
