The one-stop shop at RUAG Aviation in Munich optimised the downtime required for a Bombardier Challenger CL604 heavy maintenance event. Responding to the request of the aircraft owner, the 192-month maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) inspection included a full cabin refurbishment for the older aircraft. The Challenger CL604 aircraft, registered in the Middle East, was delivered on time and to complete customer satisfaction.

“Our customer relied on our one-stop shop solutions to fulfil all the requirements of the 192-month inspection, as well as a complete cabin restyling, simultaneously. Their decision definitely allowed them to realise significant cost savings. Most importantly, they also saved valuable time,”  states Mark-André Mann, Head of Sales Business Jets, RUAG Aviation. He continues, “Our Bombardier Challenger CL604 technical expertise and our specialists for cabin interior refurbishment combined their efforts, achieving the entirety of the project within just 10 weeks.” RUAG Aviation in-house aircraft painting and mechanics shops supported the resolution of all findings related to the heavy maintenance check. The cabin refurbishment included all soft goods, leathers, fabrics, and carpeting. “The owner was looking to effectively update and refresh a dated interior,” explains Robin Freigang, Director Cabin Interior Services & Design, RUAG Aviation. “The existing cabin interior was actually in excellent condition. Yet, the more modern color scheme lightened the interior dramatically,” he affirms.

The aircraft was able to resume scheduled operations according to plan. “We have complete confidence in RUAG Aviation’s performance on our behalf. They continue to prove reliable and  responsive to our needs and provide us with excellent service and support,” confirms the Bombardier Challenger CL604 customer. “They ensured we enjoyed complete project transparency and ongoing communications throughout the heavy maintenance check.  This allowed us to plan our operations with accuracy.”
