Atlantic Aviation, an FBO at Birmingham International Airport in Alabama, has been chosen by Cessna Aircraft to be the base of operations for a new mobile service unit (MSU). Cessna MSUs provide on-site technical expertise and immediate support for Citation operators. The specially outfitted trucks carry most of the same tools and equipment found in Cessna Citation factory service centers and can perform a variety of procedures up to and including engine exchanges. This latest MSU joins 17 others already in service in the U.S. for a total of 22 throughout North America and Europe.
Last year Cessna’s MSUs handled more than 2,300 service events at off-site locations, performing scheduled maintenance that included phase inspections and inspections called for by the Maintenance Steering Group (MSG). MSG is a collaborative effort among Cessna, its customers and the FAA to develop a safe and economical maintenance program.
