June 6, 2019

RUAG MRO International has completed a 96-month inspection on an Embraer Legacy 650. The customer chose to optimize the heavy maintenance inspection’s downtime to ensure ADS-B Out compliance and resolve Service Bulletins. RUAG’s Embraer Authorized Service Center at Munich-Oberpfaffenhofen provided one-stop shop support and project management. The project was completed on schedule and to full customer satisfaction.

RUAG’s one-stop shop approach to aircraft support enables aircraft owners to optimize downtimes, in order to save time and costs. This 96-month inspection downtime on the Embraer Legacy 650 allowed the owners to equip their aircraft with the necessary ADS-B Out upgrade for compliance with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) mandates, taking effect 7 June 2020. “Our Embraer team is keen to ensure reliable aircraft performance. Advising our Legacy and Lineage customers to ensure compliance with Mandate 2020 now, is part of how we support their continued profitable operations,” states Christian Karl, Head of Sales Business Jets, RUAG MRO


The aircraft support provider’s status as an Embraer Authorized Service Center extends over 16 years. “Our performance as a service provider for Embraer business aircraft, like this Legacy 650, is confirmed at our Munich and Geneva sites on a daily basis. Streamlined downtimes, overall savings and reliable consulting are what our customers have come to expect,” states Volker Wallrodt, Senior Vice President Business Jets, RUAG MRO International.
