Service Basel recently assisted with the return to service of a stored Avro
RJ85 aircraft. The company was asked to perform some basic maintenance on the
aircraft so it would be granted a ferry flight permit.

Service Basel towed the aircraft into its hangar so that the work could be
undertaken. The aircraft had been in open storage at Euroairport Basel-Mulhouse
for more than a year.

A field team of qualified
specialists was dispatched from another approved maintenance organisation and
they restored the aircraft into an airworthy condition. Once re-positioned to
an appropriate base maintenance facility, the aircraft is intended to undergo a
comprehensive inspection in order to finally achieve its full airworthiness.

“Special projects like
providing ad-hoc hangar space and accommodating this Avro 146 special
maintenance project demonstrate Air Service Basel’s ability to meet extraordinary and unusual demands and
provide flexible support, even on short notice, to the full satisfaction of our
customers”, says Claudio Lasagni, chief executive officer of Air Service Basel.
