Third VVIP BBJ 777 completed by AMAC Aerospace

AMAC Aerospace has redelivered a VVIP BBJ 777-200LR following a 20-month downtime during which the facility performed a nose-to-tail cabin completion.

Highlights include custom furniture, monuments and exotic materials, customized artwork, large IFE monitors, the latest generation of soundproofing, and RGB mood lighting. There are large lounge areas and dedicated entertainment spaces.

“We are all proud to have our third VVIP BBJ 777 completion project returned to service since the establishment of AMAC 10 years ago,” said Bernd Schramm, group chief operating officer, AMAC Aerospace. “We are thankful that our esteemed customer recognizes the level of details, the commitment, the efforts and the highest quality standards coming from our skilled teams.”

AMAC also recently completed its heaviest-ever maintenance check – a 12-year base maintenance inspection on a head-of-state ACJ340-200.

The project involved more than 22,000 man-hours of maintenance work. A full cabin refurbishment – that entailed more than 10,000 hours of production shop work – was performed in parallel to the maintenance check, implementation of airworthiness directives and service bulletins, and a landing gear overhaul.

Other recent redeliveries by AMAC include a head-of-state BBJ747-8i that underwent a 24-month inspection involving maintenance checks and service bulletins – including heavy modifications to fully remove all flaps for a center bearing rework, and various cabin items to update the interior appearance.

Meanwhile, two BBJs were returned to service – one that underwent base maintenance work commissioned by a private owner from Asia, and an N-registered BBJ owned by a private individual from Southern Asia.

The latter aircraft was in for base maintenance and cabin repairs. AMAC Aerospace also performed base maintenance on an A330 for a Middle East head-of-state, and annual base maintenance – including major structural repairs – on a Gulfstream GIV for a client in the Middle East.
