TAG Aviation completes first 120-month inspection on Global Express
TAG Aviation Maintenance Services Europe has completed its first 120-month inspection on a Global Express.
The 120-month inspection project was completed in August and has been carried out at TAG Farnborough’s Maintenance Services Centre. The project included a full strip and repaint of the aircraft’s livery, a SwiftBroadband upgrade and a cabin refurbishment which was undertaken at TAG’s Maintenance Services Centre in Geneva.
As the largest maintenance event to be undertaken on a Global Express, the 120-month inspection ensures a thorough examination of the airframe – the cabin interior has to be completely removed for access to facilitate the inspection which makes it an ideal time to perform any avionics upgrades such as SATCOM that requires such access.
“Completion of this first 120-month inspection is a significant milestone for TAG Aviation Farnborough Maintenance Services and has enabled us to develop similar capabilities for future inspections of this scale on a variety of aircraft types.”
