As announced end of March, AMAC Aerospace is currently doing a refurbishing of the full cabin interior and upgrading the avionic systems on a Bombardier Global XRS. The owner decided as well to renew all soft materials including the existing sofas. They will be completed by the in-house completion shops in Basel, Switzerland.

In May, AMAC Aerospace will welcome a Bombardier Global 6000. In the privately-owned aircraft an ‘ADSB-Out’ system (Automatic dependent surveillance – broadcast) will be installed.

Mr. Alexis Ott, Director Maintenance Sales & Key Account Management, comments: “We are proud to see a growing demand in ‘ADSB-Out’ installations since a couple of month coming from our customers. Due to our high expertise, our technician team could install the surveillance technology within a short ground time in parallel with a base maintenance inspection.”

New regulation in Europe

From 7th of June 2020, all aircraft that weigh more than 5 700 kg, or have a max cruise speed greater than 250 knots, will need to be equipped with ADS-B capabilities to be operated in European airspace. Find more about it on EASA’s website: https://www.easa.europa.eu/faq/104866

Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) is a system broadcasting, without the need for action from the pilot or any request from ATC (Air Traffic Control), that provides an enhanced set of aircraft surveillance data to Air Traffic Management and potentially to other aircraft.

The system significantly improves the accuracy of aircraft parameters (e.g. position, track, speed) compared with the data from existing land-based radars. That will allow Air Traffic Controllers to manage safer aircraft separations and to provide more efficient routings, resulting in a reduced environmental footprint.
