This year EBACE started with the announcement and presentation of several news from AMAC.

First one - Innovative cabin concept in cooperation with Italian Design studio Pininfarina. Ment for Airbus A350-900 to innovate the onboard experience. The inspiration comes from the electric Pininfarina design expertise with the goal to create a comfortable and enjoyable space able to make you forget being on a jet.

Next one - High speed connectivity in the air. The Ka Band System delivers broadband internet service to the business jet market and ensures animpressive connectivity experience.

AMAC’s office of airworthiness in collaboration with all involvedteams from engineering are taking care of the STC development. The team has developed a variety of multiple and single STCs which are now available to the market. AMAC has established more than10 Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs), including the installation of Honeywell’s JetWave KaBand Antenna system. AMAC installed 12 Ka-band systems last year, and did the first in 2017.

AMAC was recognized by Honeywell as its strongest distribution partner. AMAC Aerospace receivedthe ‘Channel Partner Awards’ during the Honeywell Channel Partner and Operators Conference inVienna, Austria, end of January 2019.

And finally - Hangar Number Five of AMAC Aerospace is coming in Basel!

The new hangar floor will be 4850mand mainly dedicated to maintenance work for Bombardier and mid-size aircrafts.

More than 10 years ago, AMAC started building the first hangar in Basel, Switzerland and the business commenced with the first completion project, when the hangar was completed in 2008. The company started an unparalleled growth story for the last 11 years and expanded the headquarters in Basel by building two further hangars in 2010 and 2012. Since 2015, AMAC’s facility comprises four hangars with a total facility size of 91’000m2.

And growth resumes. Construction work for hangar number 5 has started and will be finished in Q2 2020.

The property of AMAC Aerospace at the Euro Airport will be extended by approximately 22’000m2.This fifth hangar will be dedicated mostly to Bombardier’s products and other mid-size aircrafts, as AMAC is the Authorized Service Facility (ASF) of Bombardier, and the request for maintenance support is constantly growing.

The design of hangar 5 will be completely different than the other hangars. Due to safety margins of the Euroairport, the new hangar will not have the round roof, as the position will be next to the runway 26. Wood will be the dominating material inside the hangar, resembling the other four hangars.

Hangar 5 will be the longest hangar AMAC has ever built. It will be 120-meter-long; the largest made by today is 90 meters. The new hangar floor will be 4850m2. The space allows AMAC to position 3- 4 Bombardier, Global 7500 or 6-7 Bombardier, Challenger 350.
