AMAC Aerospace has gained several maintenance projects to its headquarters in Switzerland, and the company has received an award for its engineering skills.
A privately-owned Airbus A319 will enter the AMAC Aerospace facility in Basel, Switzerland by the end of February. AMAC will provide a 6, 12 and 24 month inspection with ADs and SBs on the Airbus A319 and an out of phase will be carried out simultaneously by AMAC’s maintenance team. In addition to maintenance work, AMAC will perform a partial cabin refurbishment.
Airbus A319 is to undergo maintenance and inspection work, while a Boeing B767 will have an engine change and receive a six month check on a Bombardier Challenger 350.
Pierre Wilhelm, account manager of EMEIA B&GA sales operations at Honeywell, said: “AMAC has been a key partner for Honeywell since we launched our Jetwave flagship product. They have put their cutting-edge engineering skills at the service of our mutual customers to install Jetwave on almost every VVIP aircraft enabling an unparalleled connectivity experience on board.”
On an Airbus A319, AMAC Aerospace Basel, had to carry out an AOG onsite maintenance support. AMAC dispatched a team to the AOG support outside of Basel in less than two hours. The Airbus A319 could then go back to its normal service on the same day.
A head of state Airbus A319 has been redelivered after a 12 month inspection with ADs and SBs, completed by AMAC teams in Basel. A minor cabin refurbishment was also made.
A privately-owned Boeing B767 will enter AMAC’s facilities in Basel by the end of the month. AMAC Aerospace will carry out an engine change on the Boeing B767 within a reduced ground time. For this project a special shift plan must be created to meet customer schedule expectations, redelivering the aircraft on time.
AMAC Aerospace will also carry out 6 month checks, for a new customer, to perform on a privately-owned Bombardier Challenger 350. AMAC will do service bulletins on the Challenger 350 on the six month check and the aircraft will enter AMAC’s facilities in Basel.
The commany was awarded the Channel Partner Award on January 29 2019, where Tracey Hawthorne-Kurz received it during the Honeywell Channel Partner and Operators Conference in Vienna.
Bernd Schramm, Group chief operating officer for AMAC Aerospace, said: “AMAC Aerospace are delighted with this award as we have progressed beyond our expectations in developing such connectivity solutions with Honeywell. The partnership and long-standing collaboration that resides between both companies is a testament to the success we can both share equally.”
Schramm said it strives to be at the forefront of modifiable projects and they have been extremely successful in delivering unparalleled solutions to new and existing clients.
