AMAC Aerospace announced that the company has been awarded several new maintenance projects. The demand for Automatic Dependent Surveillance (‘ADSB-Out’) Systems is growing. In addition, AMAC secured two new Boeing contracts for 2021.
A Boeing BBJ recently arrived in Basel, Switzerland, to undergo an annual check. AMAC’s technicians will install an ADSB-Out System on the privately-owned aircraft. Two further Boeing aircraft will arrive at AMAC for an installation of the ADSB-Out System as well. A Boeing 737-NG will arrive in January 2021. In parallel, a 24-, 36- and 72-month check will be performed on the privately-owned aircraft. The second Boeing, a privately-owned BBJ 747, will arrive in March 2021 and a 6-, 12- and 24-month check will be additionally carried out.
The ‘ADS-B’-System is primarily used by air traffic control to locate and monitor aircraft, in order to increase safety by providing pilots with improved information about the aircraft environment. Compared to conventional radars, the ADS-B System improves the tracking-quality substantially. “In these exceptional times for the aviation industry, AMAC are glad to have a stable order-book outlook, for the immediate future. We regularly carry out work on site and sign new contracts for maintenance projects,” comments Alexis Ott, Director Maintenance Sales & Key Account Management.
Several maintenance projects on Bombardier aircraft
AMAC Aerospace were also awarded several new maintenance projects on Bombardier aircraft. A Bombardier Challenger 605 will undergo a 500 hours APU inspection and 6-, 12-, 24- and 48-month check at Bombardier’s Authorized Service Facility. AMAC will also perform a 400-, 600- and 1,200-hours check on the privately-owned aircraft in parallel. As announced few weeks ago, AMAC will install a Ka-band system on a privately-owned Bombardier Global 6000. The owner of the aircraft decided to have a 60-month inspection carried out after the completed installation of a Ka-band antenna. AMAC recently welcomed a Bombardier Challenger 300 in Basel. AMAC’s Bombardier team will carry out an annual maintenance on short notice on the privately-owned aircraft. A privately-owned Airbus ACJ319 will arrive mid-December to undergo a 6-month inspection. In conclusion, AMAC will carry out an ‘Out of Phase’ (OOP) task.
ISO certification for health and safety management
AMAC Aerospace has successfully passed the surveillance audit of the ISO 45001 certification. ISO 45001 is an international standard that sets out requirements for occupational health and safety management systems. “This is the result of a day-to-day engagement by all AMAC employees in all relevant health and safety at work matters. We thank all our teams for the support and active participation,” said Philippe Schurrer, Director Safety & Security and Facility Management.
