Cleveland MRO Notches Second Legacy 500 Check

Cleveland, Ohio-based MRO provider Constant Aviation has completed its second 750-hour inspection on an Embraer Legacy 500, with the third set to follow later this month. There are now nearly 40 of the midsize business jets in operation and, two years after entering service, the fleet has now reached its first round of mandated inspections.

That recent initial check, consisting of 35 items, as well as a routine engine inspection, was led by Jim Rady, the company’s Legacy program manager. As an Embraer authorized service center, Constant has performed more than one million hours of work on the Legacy 600/650.

“Over the years, we have continued to expand on our Embraer offerings by systematically expanding additional airframe capabilities as it became necessary,” said Dave Bowman, the company’s vice president of operations. “We are truly committed to our partnership with Embraer, and the measures we have taken to nurture and preserve that commitment, such as airframe-specific training for our technicians [and] securing more than $500,000 in specialized tooling, are a testament to that.”
