RUAG Munich completes heavy maintenance on G550
RUAG Aviation in Munich has completed a 15-month and 30-month heavy maintenance inspection on a Gulfstream G550.
Sky-Tech Maintenance Service SL was awarded the contract, which included a full aircraft painting and engine maintenance. The heavy maintenance inspection took five weeks to complete.
“The full selection of one-stop shop solutions available at RUAG allowed us to cater to our Gulfstream G550 customer’s individual needs.”
Victor Soria Sainz, manager, Sky-Tech Maintenance Service SL, said: “The full selection of one-stop shop solutions available at RUAG allowed us to cater to our Gulfstream G550 customer’s individual needs. Over the years, on previous aircraft projects, RUAG has consistently proven to be a reliable partner for heavy maintenance events and on-schedule aircraft availability. So we are very pleased they include the Gulfstream G550 in their service portfolio.”
In addition to MRO and aircraft painting, RUAG technicians fulfilled line maintenance services on the Rolls-Royce engines. RUAG also supported partner Sky-Tech with specific Gulfstream G550 knowledge sharing, enabling training for their own engineering technicians.
Volker Wallrodt, senior vice president Business Jets, Dornier 228 & Components, RUAG Aviation, said: “Our organisation remains responsive to meeting individual customer needs. Aircraft services providers appreciate this and regularly approach us for the complementary solutions we bring to their projects.”
