Monarch Aircraft Engineering (MAEL) has seconded a specialist team of structural aircraft engineers to Basel to complete a Strut Improvement Program (SIP) for Jet Aviation.
The company, who gained its Bermuda Department Civil Aviation approval in October 2013, has sent a team of licensed engineers from its headquarters at London Luton airport to Jet Aviation’s facility in Basel to carry out the SIP modification on a Boeing 767 VIP aircraft.
The SIP modification is a very extensive rebuild of the engine pylons to restore damage tolerance capability.
Derek Gibson, Compliance and Service Delivery Director for MAEL, said: “Our flexible maintenance solutions prove to be a great asset to our customers. This an excellent example of how MAEL’s reputation in Europe, together with our capability to second a highly skilled work force to a location away from our main UK locations at the customer’s request, has resulted in a very worthwhile opportunity for the company and the team involved.”
