AMAC Aerospace announces new maintenance contracts and the successful return to service of five aircrafts

July 29, 2016

AMAC Aerospace announces the return to service of four aircrafts after maintenance work and the return delivery of an A320 after a VIP completion project. In addition two new maintenance contracts on two Boeing B737 were signed.

A privately owned A319 was delivered after a heavy base maintenance input. The aircraft, which was outfitted and delivered by AMAC in 2012, underwent a maintenance programme that included a C-Check. The VIP cabin was partially removed and accessed by AMAC’s highly specialized engineers. The VIP aircraft was delivered on time within a challenging ground time in order to fulfill the operational requirements of the customer.

Two G450 aircraft successfully released to service
After a registration change to a new owner and operator two G450 aircraft have been released to service. AMAC’s Design Organization covered new cabin placards and an engineering order for a new exterior paint livery. AMAC’s Maintenance and Logistics Organization fulfilled all the registration change requirements within a short downtime in order to minimize the customer’s operational costs. During this registration change and defect rectification process the highly specialized Gulfstream team of AMAC performed all due maintenance activities. AMAC sent the two aircraft to its selected partner for exterior painting, which is working under AMAC’s quality handbook according to AMAC’s standards. AMAC Aerospace is auditing all selected paint facilities and is monitoring the paint work and is further providing Part 145 Maintenance activities along through the paint work (i.e. balancing of flight controls, aircraft weighing and release to service).

New maintenance contracts on two Boeing B737
AMAC Aerospace has also signed two maintenance contracts on two Boeing B737 aircraft and has delivered one B737 NG after a maintenance input. Two B737 aircraft will undergo an annual check, whereas the first aircraft will already enter the facility in the end of July, the second will be inducted in August this year at AMAC’s facility in Basel, Switzerland.

Another B737 NG from a Middle East customer has been delivered on time and within budget after a C-Check in conjunction with a partial cabin removal and various aesthetical repairs. “We are pleased that our customers appreciate our high standards and our long-term business relationships that we have at AMAC Aerospace” said Mr. Alexis Ott, Senior Manager Sales & Key Account, AMAC Aerospace.

Exquisite interiors and highest standards of technical equipment
AMAC Aerospace is proud to announce the return delivery of its A320 VIP Completion project to a new customer. The aircraft was used as an airliner and was brought to AMAC Aerospace after it was sold to a new, private owner. The cabin was completely removed by AMAC’s experts and is now decorated with the highest levels of custom furniture, decorative inlays, handmade VIP carpet, a master bedroom associated with master lavatory including two VIP lavatories and high end technical support systems. Ten new single VIP seats and four new VIP divans convertible into bed have been installed inside the cabin whereas the remaining economy class seats have been refurbished. All three VIP lavatories include a foot washer which was developed and installed by AMAC’s highly skilled engineers and craftsmen. A new SATCOM system, a CMS (cabin management system) associated to a digital type IFE system including zoom and quad cameras have been installed in order to enable the highest standard of technical support on board of the VIP A320. Various service bulletins as for example the installation of two additional fuel tanks have been carried out within a very challenging ground time.

“This is another great success story in the history of AMAC which we reached with the efforts, continuing support, professional work and the team spirit of our highly skilled experts at AMAC. The VIP A320 Completion Project was delivered on time and within budget. We are extremely happy with the end result and we relish the opportunity to take on our next completion project and to further strengthen our excellent position within the market” said Mr. Bernd Schramm, Group Chief Operating Officer, AMAC Aerospace.
