During several months of ground time, DC Aviation’s Maintenance Center at Stuttgart Airport has overhauled the VVIP-version of an Airbus A320 Family aircraft, investing over 5,000 hours.
One feature of the comprehensive maintenance and refurbishing work was the modernization of the on-board entertainment system, including the installation of fully HD-capable cabling. Fitting the airplane with HD monitors, a new surround-sound system, and a WLAN with a media server brought the cabin technically up to date. The cabin was completely modernized, which included laying of modern durable non-textile (NTF) flooring.
In addition to the cabin work, a ten-year maintenance check and a landing gear overhaul were performed. The ground time was also used to perform sensible structural repair work.
In the past, DC Aviation has already performed complete cabin overhauls e.g. on the Legacy 650 and the Challenger 850 and has acquired comprehensive experience with changing landing gear. It has been offering line and base maintenance services for various types of aircraft since 1999.
