ExecuJet MRO Services Middle East has successfully performed an airframe heavy maintenance check on a Global 6000.
Due once every 120 months, this particular airframe maintenance check is one of the heaviest that can be conducted on a Global 6000, and also includes a full landing gear overhaul.
The aircraft’s inboard flaps were also subject to a service bulletin, from the aircraft manufacturer, requiring upper skin removal and rib replacement.
ExecuJet MRO Services Middle East has performed more than 38 such flap repairs and owns the specialised tooling required to perform this service bulletin.
Work also included an extensive cabin interior refurbishment and installation of a new satcom system.
Nick Weber, regional vice president of Middle East at ExecuJet MRO Services, said: “A few years ago, clients in the Middle East would send these projects – a very heavy maintenance check coupled with a major cabin refurbishment – to MRO companies in Europe, but these projects are now coming here to Dubai.
“Clients recognise that we have the capacity – including available slots – allowing us to be flexible in meeting client needs. And we have the manpower and expertise to deliver to the highest quality.”
Weber continued: “Our highly trained engineering teams enjoy a wealth of experience on the Global and Challenger family of business jets.”
ExecuJet MRO Services Middle East has been active in Dubai serving Challenger and Global operators, from around the region, for more than 20 years and is also a MRO of choice because it is certified by the US FAA, EASA, and other international regulators.
These certifications include approval on Global aircraft for line and heavy maintenance up to and inclusive of the 180-month/5,000-hour/7,500-landing inspection.
Weber added: “ExecuJet is performing, on a regular basis, major scheduled maintenance checks on Global aircraft, along with major avionics upgrades and interior refurbishments.
“ExecuJet has 20 Global B1 rated engineers and five Global rated B2 engineers on permanent staff in Dubai.”
ExecuJet MRO Services Middle East recently opened its new 15,344m2 (165,160ft2 ) purpose-built MRO facility at Dubai’s Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC).
