ExecuJet MRO Services Middle East, a Dassault Aviation subsidiary, has completed work on a Global 6000 that included an extensive cabin interior refurbishment, installation of a new satcom system and an airframe heavy maintenance check.

This particular airframe maintenance check – which falls due once every 120 months – is one of the heaviest which can be performed on a Global 6000, as it also includes a full landing gear overhaul.

Recently completing the comprehensive overhaul on a Global 6000, the Middle East-based MRO facility carried out an extensive cabin interior refurbishment, installation of a cutting-edge satcom system, as well as the airframe heavy maintenance check.

A Shift in Project Dynamics

Nick Weber, Regional VP Middle East at ExecuJet MRO Services, sheds light on a significant shift in project dynamics.

He notes that a few years ago, projects involving heavy maintenance checks and major cabin refurbishments were outsourced to European MRO companies.

However, there has been a noteworthy transition, with these projects now finding their way to Dubai.

The driving force behind this shift lies in ExecuJet’s capacity, flexibility, and its commitment to delivering quality service.

Weber emphasizes the crucial role played by ExecuJet’s highly trained engineering teams, boasting extensive experience with the Global and Challenger family of business jets.

The airframe heavy maintenance check, occurring every 120 months, becomes even more intricate when it involves a full landing gear overhaul.

Airframe-Specific Innovations

The Global 6000 in focus required specific airframe work, addressing a service bulletin from the aircraft manufacturer.

ExecuJet’s track record of over 38 successful flap repairs and ownership of specialized tooling highlight their prowess.

With a focus on sheet-metal and composite structural repairs, the MRO facility navigates the nuances of airframe-specific challenges with finesse.

With a formidable presence in Dubai for over two decades, the operator has become the MRO of choice for Challenger and Global operators across the region.

Awarded for service excellence, the company’s new 15,344m2 purpose-built MRO facility at Dubai’s Al Maktoum International Airport solidifies its commitment to unmatched service quality.

Certifications Held

ExecuJet’s distinction as a Dassault-owned company and an authorized service centre for leading OEMs such as Embraer, Rolls-Royce, Honeywell, and Collins Aerospace underscores its commitment to industry standards.

Holding certifications from the US FAA, EASA, and other international regulators, including approval for line and heavy maintenance up to the 180-month/5,000-hour/7,500-landing inspection on Global aircraft, ExecuJet stands as a paragon of reliability.

Cabin Refurbishments

Collaborating with European interior aircraft specialist F/List, ExecuJet showcases its commitment to excellence in cabin refurbishments.

The Global 6000 project involved a partnership with F/List Dubai, resulting in a rejuvenated interior with new leather upholstery, carpet, and dado panel material.

The dado panel, covering the lower cabin wall, adds a touch of sophistication to the aircraft’s interior.

Satcom Installation

In a strategic move, the client opted for a Plane Simple high-speed Ku system from Satcom Direct during the downtime.

Offering data speeds of up to 15 Mbps, this upgrade positions the aircraft at the forefront of connectivity.

Nick Weber affirms that the refurbished interior and new satcom system are not just upgrades but savvy investments, contributing to an increase in the aircraft’s overall value.
