Magnetic MRO, global total technical care and asset management organisation, successfully completed a VVIP Business Jet repaint project for an undisclosed customer, once again proving itself in the VIP arena by painting a Bombardier Global 5000.

“We approach every single paint project as a distinctive artwork as they all need a special attention and require customized solutions. However, painting a business jet, regardless of how exciting it is, refers to a totally different category due to excessive quality demands and required meticulous attention.” stated Rihards Priedkalns, Magnetic MRO Aircraft Paintshop Manager.

The project involved 20 painters who dedicated 3450 man-hours and used 550 liters of primers, paints and clearcoats to provide a distinctive result. Priedkalns underlined that the preparation period is the key to deliver a quality result for every project. Following the completion, Painting Department polished every square meter not only to increase the aircraft’s lifetime but also to sustain the quality of the painting. “I must say that it has been an absolute pleasure spending time at Magnetic MRO, who certainly has a very professional team and excellent aircraft painting hangar.” stated Roman Beckmann, client’s on site representative. “They certainly have raised the bar for painting a VIP aircraft.”

Following the new purpose-built Paint Hangar opening in 2017, Magnetic MRO Painting Team is provided with an all in facility where painters can show their true potential and provide ultimate results. “The new facility is equipped with a custom docking system which can be tailored to serve different types of aircraft, making the facility one of a kind in the whole region.” added Kaspars Podins, Operations Manager at Magnetic MRO. “Consequently, working on a business jet was greatly convenient for our team and highly reassuring for our client.”
