AMAC Aerospace Switzerland AG has been awarded EASA Approval to perform line and base maintenance as well as interior refurbishments and modifications on Global Express, Global Express XRS and Global 5000 aircraft. This marks another step forward in AMAC Aerospace’s successful development.

In operation since November 2008, AMAC is already certified for base and line maintenance on the Gulfstream Large Cabin series, Airbus A318/A319/A320/A321 series, Boeing BBJ series and line maintenance for the McDonnell Douglas MD-80 series.

By November 2009, full EASA Part 21 Design and Production Organization Approval (DOA/POA) is expected to be granted with the completion of AMAC’s first outfitting project.

In May 2010, AMAC’s new wide-body hangar completion will add 8,400m² floor space (90,416 sq ft) and additional workshops and offices. AMAC’s hangars will accommodate multiple wide-body aircraft such as Boeing B747s, B787s, Airbus A350s, A340s, small business jets of every type, and one hangar is extendable to house the Airbus A380.
