ExecuJet MRO Services Australia has completed the
first 120-Month (8C) heavy maintenance check performed in
Australia on a Bombardier Global Express.
The 8C heavy maintenance check involves a large
scope of work, including many structural inspections. To inspect
the airframe and other structures, the interior cabin needs to be
dismantled and removed. The external panels, to enclosed
structural areas, also need to be removed.
In addition, the 8C check includes performing
functional checks on all the operating systems, such as the flight
controls, and overhauling the landing gear.
During the project ExecuJet also completed many
recommended service bulletins and upgrades offered by Bombardier.
All the work was carried out at ExecuJet’s
maintenance, repair and overhaul facility at Sydney Airport.
“Our capabilities to perform the 10-year inspection have been
built up over many years of performing heavy maintenance. ExecuJet
MRO Services Australasia is a Bombardier Authorised Service
Centre and we have made significant investments in Bombardier
tooling and factory training our licensed engineers on the Global
series of aircraft,” said Grant Ingall, Vice President Australasia.
“In previous years, there was a tendency for operators to perform
these checks in Europe and the US, but local operators do value
our service … they have confidence in our technical capabilities
to deliver on-time and cost effectively.”
The Global Express aircraft which ExecuJet
serviced is operated by Walker Air Services.
