RUAG International completes pre-purchase inspection on a Bombardier Global Express


The Bombardier Global Express can fly intercontinental journeys without the need for stops.

Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany – 8 July 2020 – RUAG MRO International has fulfilled a level three Pre-Purchase Inspection (PPI) on a Bombardier Global Express business aircraft to full customer satisfaction. The detailed aircraft evaluation progressed according to schedule, even allowing for the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Securing the health and safety of employees and customers remains a priority at RUAG MRO International’s business aircraft facilities at Munich-Oberpfaffenhofen. Planning for the level three PPI at RUAG MRO International’s one-stop shop at Munich-Oberpfaffenhofen was straightforward and transparent. The buyer’s representative determined the scope of the inspection directly using RUAG’s proprietary PPI decision-making tool. The clear selection of requirements enabled the project to proceed promptly while accurately generating the details relevant to the purchase criteria.

In addition, the RUAG team enabled a seamless registration process for the new ownership, ensuring full documentation readiness for a prompt on-site acceptance by the FAA-DAR (Designated Airworthiness Representative).

“It was an absolute pleasure working with the RUAG team. From start to finish it was a quality process and job. Communication, know how, and responsiveness were excellent,” states Samuel G. Lechtner, L&L International, Buyer’s Representative, in his project feedback. He continues on to confirm, “Thanks to the team for their assistance, especially during these uncertain times. We will be back in the future with more EU projects.”

The aircraft arrived at the RUAG MRO International location during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, adding a layer of complexity to the PPI process. “We are proud of the quality and performance we are able to deliver while still safeguarding the health of all involved,” states Christian Karl, Head of Sales Business Jets, RUAG MRO International.

“Precise planning of this PPI project allowed our teams to proceed both reliably and safely. We can confirm that we continue to follow the recommended guidelines for protecting our customers, our employees, and our business jet community,” Karl concludes.
