New Hangar meets high demand of MRO Services
EuroAirport – 7 May 2021 – The new hangar 5 at the headquarters of AMAC Aerospace in Basel, Switzerland, dedicated to mid-size jets, meets the high demand for MRO services. The Swiss MRO and Completion experts won several new maintenance projects.
In March, AMAC Aerospace opened its hangar doors to welcome a Boeing B737-NG. The long-term customer sent the narrow-body aircraft for a maintenance check to Basel, Switzerland. The maintenance contract on the privately-owned aircraft includes a 1A- and 2A- Check as well as ‘Out of Phase’ (‘OOP’) tasks. AMAC’s technicians will carry out Service Bulletins (SB’s) and Airworthiness directives (AD’s).
A privately-owned Airbus ACJ319 has entered AMAC’s hangar in Mid-March. AMAC’s Airbus Team will carry out a 72-month-check on the narrow-body twin-engine jet aircraft.
AMAC Aerospace signed two new maintenance contracts on Boeing Business Jets. A privately-owned Boeing B737-NG will arrive in June in Basel, Switzerland, to undergo a heavy C-Check including a 1A-, 2A-, 4A-, 6A- and 4C-Check. During the ground time, AMAC’s Boeing team will carry out a landing gear overhaul on the aircraft.
A second Boeing B737-NG entered AMAC’s hangar in April 2021. AMAC’s Boeing Team will perform a due 2C-Check on the privately-owned aircraft, followed by Service Bulletins (SB’s) and Airworthiness directives (AD’s).
End of March, AMAC Aerospace opened its hangar doors to welcome two Bombardier aircraft, a Global 6000 and a Challenger 300. On the Global 6000, a large business jet with a range of 6,000 nm, AMAC’s Bombardier team is going to carry out a due maintenance which includes a 750h- and a 2250h-Check. At the same time, a Bombardier Challenger 300 arrived for a 600h-Check and a due maintenance on short notice. The privately-owned aircraft is positioned in AMAC’s new hangar 5, which is dedicated to mid-size jets.
Two Pre-Purchase-Inspections on Gulfstream Aircraft
Flexibility is key for an excellent client service. AMAC Aerospace signed requests for a Pre-Purchase-Inspection on two privately-owned Gulfstream 450, on short notice. End of March, the two aircraft arrived in Basel, Switzerland. “With our new hangar 5, we have reduced substantially our lead-times, we are able to accept more requests from our clients for their mid-size jets on short notice. We are happy to offer a slot in this well-equipped hangar with the latest technologies,” said Mr. Alexis Ott, Director Maintenance Sales & Key Account Management.
Landing Gear Overhaul
AMAC Aerospace signed a new maintenance contract on a Boeing B737-NG. The privately-owned aircraft arrived in April for a landing gear overhaul on short notice.
New Hangar 5 Operational
After only 12 months of construction time, the latest hangar of AMAC Aerospace has opened its doors to welcome the first mid-size jets. “We are proud to have managed this project successfully in this demanding time,” commented Bernd Schramm, Group COO of AMAC Aerospace. “The Hangar will be dedicated to mid-size jets maintenance and can accommodate up to 7 midsize jets like Bombardier Global or Challenger series or Gulfstream series or a combination thereof. The maintenance services for these types of aircraft were always high in demand and is steadily increasing due to our highly recognized quality of work.” The new building adds 4’850m2 respectively 30’000m2 of new apron to the four existing hangars at EuroAirport in Basel, Switzerland.
