 TAG Aviation Maintenance Services Europe has completed its first 120-month inspection on a Global Express aircraft. The 120-month inspection project - which was completed in August and has been carried out at TAG Farnborough’s Maintenance Services Centre - 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 120month inspection ensures a thorough examination of the aircraft 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.  The 120-month inspection also included a major overhaul of the landing gear and the aircraft’s in-cabin connectivity has received an upgrade to SwiftBroadband with a new Satcom Direct Router - which includes Global VT, Aero XR and Sky Ticket - all supplied by Satcom Direct. 
 “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”, said Cyrille Pillet, Vice President Maintenance Operations, TAG Aviation Europe. “In addition to Base Maintenance Services, we offer Line Maintenance support, avionics upgrades and aircraft cabin interior refurbishments which all form part of our strategy to better serve our customers through an extended suite of services available at Farnborough Airport. We are delighted to reinforce our competencies as a Bombardier Centre of Excellence which is part of the TAG Aviation unique network of repair stations across the EMEA region.” 
TAG Aviation has heavy maintenance centres in Geneva and Farnborough and also offers comprehensive maintenance services in Sion, Paris, Clermont-Ferrand, Madrid, Lisbon (network), Hong Kong and Lomé in Togo. TAG Aviation Maintenance Services has certification to work on over fifty types of aircraft.
