It's been a busy month for AMAC Aerospace, which is taking on two Airbus ACJ projects and has a third in the pipeline, as well as work on a pair of Bombardier Global twins, the Switzerland-based MRO provider announced this week. “Despite the challenging times we are all going through, be it the logistical or manpower issues, we are working hard to implement all our customers’ requests,” said AMAC director of maintenance sales and key account management Alexis Ott.

The company has accepted two ACJ319s in Basel, one of which is undergoing a six-, 12-, and 24-month check, while the other also has a six- and 12-month check and ADS-B Out and Ka-Band system installations. By the end of summer, AMAC also will take on a Middle East customer’s ACJ319 project, though it didn’t detail the type of work it would be performing on that airplane.

Those projects are in addition to a Global XRS that AMAC received in February. The XRS’s work includes a 120-month inspection and a refurbishment of its cabin seats, divans, and carpet. Also, AMAC will upgrade the XRS’s avionics to Primus Elite and install ADS-B Out. Simultaneously, it is performing a 15- and 30-month check on a Global 6000.
