RUAG Aviation has completed a 10-year inspection on an African based Dornier 328-300 business jet, finishing the project on schedule, within budget, and to full customer satisfaction according to the Swiss MRO provider.



The major check was carried out at Ruag Aviation’s Dornier 328 Service Centre in Berne for Nigeria’s Air Peace.
“We are confident in RUAG as an MRO partner, as it is absolutely crucial for us to have a maintenance provider we can rely on: one that understands how we do business and treats our timing and availability requirements with dedication,” says Alex Iheuwa, director of maintenance and engineering for Air Peace.
When the Nigerian airline’s Dornier 328-300 was approaching its 10-year inspection, it turned to the proven Dornier 328 expertise of the Swiss specialist. s
“Our Dornier 328-300 serves as the private business aircraft of our airline’s owner,” Iheuwa said. “It was important it be completed as quickly as possible. “
A landing gear overhaul for the Dornier 328, in December 2015, had opened the door for Ruag when it succeeded in troubleshooting and repairing an issue with the gear that had confounded other providers. Specialists followed-up the project with a full overhaul of the landing gear, supplying the aircraft with a loaner-set while the work was carried out.
