Jet Aviation’s maintenance center in Geneva has recently completed its first 192-month, ultra-heavy maintenance check on a Gulfstream V.

The Geneva maintenance facility’s first 192-month inspection on a Gulfstream V was performed together with a number of service bulletins (SBs) and a Water Line Ribbon Heater Upgrade. Extensive overhauls of all major aircraft systems and structures were performed during the inspection, including complete removal of the cabin and cargo compartments, removal of both engines and the APU, opening of the floor for fuselage skin and floor structure inspection, testing of the landing gear and structural inspection of the wing panels.

“This kind of major inspection truly attests to our broad range of skills and competencies in Geneva,” says Cyril Martiniere, managing director of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO facility in Geneva. “It also serves to highlight our team’s flexibility, customer orientation and dedication to ensuring complex projects are successfully completed.”

To help reduce downtime, the MRO facility established a special team of sheet metal engineers to work three shifts throughout the day. Special arrangements were also made to reinforce the company’s normal weekend availability in order to meet the customer’s needs and expectations.
