This shows a positive impact in our business segment”, said Alexis Ott, Director Maintenance Sales & Key Account Management.

AMAC has also been awarded to carry out a Pre-Purchase Inspection (‘PPI’) on two privately-owned Bombardier Global 6000s. Both aircraft have already arrived in Basel. A third Bombardier Global 6000 is expected in the next few weeks. The privately-owned aircraft will undergo a 500h-/1,000h-check and a 15-/30-month check. AMAC won a project for a 24-month inspection on a Bombardier Challenger 300 in September. The customer now commissioned AMAC to perform multiple cabin interior work on the privately-owned aircraft. Finally, AMAC has been awarded an annual inspection on a Bombardier Challenger 605.

AMAC also welcomed two Boeing BBJ737 in Basel. The owner of the two aircraft assigned AMAC`s Boeing team to carry out two Ka-Band installations.
