Bombardier Business Aircraft completes 75 120-month inspections on Global business jets

Posted 2 September 2016 · Add Comment

Bombardier Business Aircraft has announced its Service Centre Network has now completed over 75 120-month heavy inspections on Global business jets.

Relied on by governments, fractional operators and individual operators, Bombardier Business Aircraft's installed base of more than 700 Global aircraft worldwide continues to demonstrate proven reliability.

The in-service fleet has performed nearly 700,000 landings and has logged nearly 2,000,000 flight hours.

The 120-month inspection on the Global business jet is one of the largest maintenance events in the aircraft's lifecycle, which comes due during its tenth year of service and requires disassembly for a detailed inspection of the airframe, structure and landing gear.

"This milestone demonstrates our experience, our expertise, and most importantly, our ability to offer our customers peace of mind, particularly when faced with one of the most critical inspections in the product's lifecycle," said Stan Younger, vice president, Aircraft Service Centres. "As the aircraft manufacturer, no other maintenance provider comes close to the level of expertise we have on this aircraft or this inspection."
