AMAC has welcomed an Airbus A319 aircraft to its headquarters in Basel, Switzerland, for a heavy base maintenance check and a KA band installation, and a head-of-state Airbus A330 has entered AMAC Aerospace's hangar doors in Basel.

A C-check in conjunction with a full IFE upgrade to large 4K monitors, new switch panels and further enhancements for the passengers' comfort during operations will be performed on the A330 by AMAC Aerospace's experienced Airbus team. AMAC's in-house developed STC (supplemental type certificate) for KA band installations on A330-200 aircraft will be re-used when installing a KA band system on the head-of-state aircraft. In addition, AMAC will refurbish the seats and the aircraft is undergoing an 'obsolesce program', where all the obsolete parts and components of the aircraft are to be removed and replaced with current state-of-the-art parts and equipment.

For the Airbus A319, a six-year inspection will be carried out by AMAC Aerospace in conjunction with the installation of a KA band system. The supplemental type certificate (STC) will be developed in-house by AMAC's engineering department and is expected to be made available to the market to all ACJ operators by the middle of March, 2018.
