Brabus Private Aviation, which was revealed at EBACE in May as a new luxury design, completion and management venture, was “launched” at MEBA 2012 yesterday, at 12:12 p.m. local time on 12/12/12. The new venture brings together four respected names from the automotive and aviation worlds: Brabus, PrivatAir, Ruag Aviation and Happy Design Studio. Brabus has 35 years’ experience in the luxury outfitting and customization of automobiles, particularly those of Mercedes-Benz.
MRO Premier Turbines has invested more than $1 million in a realignment of its Neosho, Mo. Rolls-Royce M250 repair and overhaul area. The goal was to facilitate production efficiency and reduce turn time with improvements touching on all aspects of the program, including test-cell upgrades, additional tooling and shop aids, and a reflow of the production floor layout.
