Ruag completes Winslow 500th life raft milestone

Posted 19 October 2016 · Add Comment

Ruag Aviation has completed its 500th life raft maintenance event on Winslow equipment. The milestone for the industry leader in aircraft component MRO was achieved at its Munich location, which features the industry's only dedicated, in-house component service centre.

The centre guarantees a turnaround time of just three days for any single component.
Industry averages show completion on a single Winslow life raft can require up to three weeks. RUAG Aviation requires as little as one day to fulfil the same requirements, proving highest standards of quality, and ensuring guaranteed OEM compliance and full certification. Rafts are delivered aircraft-ready and are packed according to individual specifications.
This extends to all six Winslow model variations; each one of which comes equipped with ten pieces of mandatory equipment, including a beacon, flares, water-filter, hand pumps, survival rations, knives, batteries and torches. Additional supplies and fillers are individually chosen and specified by each aircraft owner, resulting in tailored maintenance and supply services.
