Continuous demand for onboard connectivity

Euroairport, November 13, 2020 – AMAC Aerospace is pleased to announce that a wide-body aircraft of an esteemed client has recently entered AMAC’s facility. The technicians of AMAC will install an onboard connectivity system on the aircraft. In addition, a Boeing BBJ737 will be equipped with a Ka-band antenna and will undergo a due maintenance.

Welcome at AMAC Aerospace’s headquarters in Basel, Switzerland: The Swiss experts for onboard connectivity will upgrade a Boeing wide-body aircraft with the Gogo 2Ku Inflight System

AMAC Aerospace recently opened its hangar doors for a wide-body aircraft of an esteemed client in Basel, Switzerland. AMAC’s Boeing team will install a Gogo 2Ku Inflight System on the aircraft. The connectivity solution from Gogo delivers more bandwidth with significantly more high-speed internet in the entire cabin and superior performance connectivity in the sky. The system comprises two antennas, one for the forward link, which transmits data to the aircraft, and another antenna for the return link, which receives the data.

“We realize that a perfect onboard connectivity is very important for our customers. With our existing STC capabilities, we are happy to offer our customers an incomparable and high-speed internet experience on their aircraft”, said Eric Hoegen, Director Completion Sales & Key Account Management.

AMAC also welcomed a privately-owned Boeing BBJ737 for a 12-year inspection in mid-October. The so-called D-check is by far the most comprehensive and demanding check for an aircraft – more or less the entire aircraft is taken apart for inspection and overhaul. A second privately-owned Boeing BBJ737 is expected for a due maintenance. The aircraft will be equipped with a Ka-band antenna. Alexis Ott, Director Maintenance Sales & Key Account Management, confirms the continuous demand: “More and more customers want to enjoy the same connectivity on board as they are used to their homes. We are happy to make it happen.”

Approximately every 3000 flight hours, a C-check is due; it includes the A- and B- check plus detailed inspection of airframe, engines and accessories, heavy lubrication, and a portion of the corrosion prevention program

Two additional new awarded maintenance projects

AMAC was awarded a new maintenance project on an Airbus aircraft. An Airbus ACJ319 recently arrived in Basel to undergo a 4C-check including a detailed inspection of the aircraft structure and a thorough test of the systems. A privately-owned Gulfstream 550 arrived early November for a C-check.
