SR Technics redelivers VVIP aircraft in record time of 41 days

Posted 25 January 2017 · Add Comment

SR Technics, a MRO service provider that has offices in Dubai, has announced the redelivery of an Airbus wide-body aircraft with a full VVIP cabin


The aircraft underwent a maintenance check, which required the removal and re-installation of the VVIP cabin, in addition to some minor repairs to cabin monuments. 

Gregor Müller, head of the interior competence center at SR Technics, explained: “The challenge was to get the cabin removed and then reinstalled in record time. We were able to assemble a team of cabin experts and came up with a unique process to minimize the time required for the removal and reinstallation, taking into consideration the individual cabin parts, which have fragile surfaces. In the end, we removed the cabin in five days and reinstalled in fifteen days, completing the job in even less time than planned, and because of the special setup, left the cabin in perfect condition.”                                        

Michael Sattler, head of Aircraft Services at SR Technics added:  “The similar work is often expected to take 90 days of downtime, the standard market time for a job of this sort. Since we can run 2-3 daily shifts here at SR Technics in Zurich, we were able to offer the job in a timeframe that is unique to this industry. For anyone considered our proposal unrealistic, we proved that we can deliver fast, as we completed the work two days ahead of schedule, in just 41 days.”
