Posted 17 January 2017 · Add Comment

Bombardier Business Aircraft has announced its Service Centre Network has completed over 200 96-month heavy inspections on Challenger business jets.

"This milestone underscores our customers' trust and confidence in Bombardier Business Aircraft's industry-leading know-how," said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, vice president and general manager, customer experience. "As the aircraft manufacturer, our level of expertise is unrivalled on the 96-month inspection, one of the most comprehensive in the aircraft's lifetime."

The 96-month inspection on the Challenger business jet is one of the most in-depth maintenance events in the aircraft's lifecycle, which comes due during its eighth year of service and requires a thorough inspection of the airframe, structure and landing gear. Customers benefit from the Service Centre Network's comprehensive capabilities and flexibility, as well as on-site parts inventory and engineering support. They can also maximise their maintenance event to complete additional work during the downtime, such as paint, installation of in-flight connectivity, avionics upgrades or interior refurbishment.
