Constant Aviation has completed their 30th 96-month inspection on the Embraer Legacy 600.

“The 96-month inspection is one of the two most in-depth inspections on the Legacy 600. It averages approximately 3,300 man-hours and requires specialised tooling, equipment and knowledge of the airframe to complete successfully.”

Jim Rady, Embraer program manager said: “The 96-month inspection is one of the two most in-depth inspections on the Legacy 600. It averages approximately 3,300 man-hours and requires specialised tooling, equipment and knowledge of the airframe to complete successfully. A few key elements of the 96-month includes the removal of over 400 panels and external items, ailerons, flaps and rudder, inspection of interior structures, corrosion inspections, aft tank functionality checks and the replacement of the aft tank bladder along with replacing the flight control cables.”

“We have been bringing our Legacy 600’s to Constant Aviation for years. Their experience is second to none and I am confident that whatever may come up during our inspections, they have a resolution.”

Vincent Menichino, quality control manager for Aircraft Services Group said: “We have been bringing our Legacy 600’s to Constant Aviation for years. Their experience is second to none and I am confident that whatever may come up during our inspections, they have a resolution. Our relationship with Constant goes beyond the service on our aircraft, they truly are family. If you spend any amount of time within their facilities you will immediately see that they treat their customers more than just another aircraft. Jim Rady, Constant’s Embraer program manager, knows the aircraft inside and out. We have called Jim from the field and he is able to walk us through solutions over the phone. Having that level of technical support is one of the many reasons why Constant is our maintenance provider of choice.”

“Constant Aviation is the only Embraer authorised service centre to have completed this many 96-month inspections on the Legacy 600. Constant currently has its 31st 96-month in-house and will have that completed within the next two weeks. We have been a partner of Embraer since 1998 and have accomplished many firsts on their product line. We were the first service centre, outside of Embraer, to complete a 41,000 foot modification on the airframe. We have also completed two wing changes and four nose changes. One of our goals when we started Constant Aviation was to become industry experts in specific airframes, like we have done with the Embraer Legacy 600. There are many maintenance options, but when a customer is able to trust the level of experience and expertise during a maintenance event, a certain level of comfort is created and fostered,” added Rady.

Constant Aviation has facilities at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, Birmingham International Airport and Las Vegas International Airport.
