German MRO airplus Maintenance completed its first ADS-B upgrade on an Embraer Phenom 300. The upgrade was completed ahead of schedule, the company said.
“To deliver a reliable and cost-effective ADS-B solution and to keep the ground time low, is what we are focusing on,” added airplus COO Florian Kindzorra, stressing the need for other operators to book slots for the modification as soon as possible with the 2020 mandate looming.
The latest upgrade expands on the offerings for the maintenance provider that is based at Friedrichshafen Airport in Germany. The company, which has more than 20 years of experience in the business and general aviation market, provides a range of services, including maintenance, inspection, parts, repairs, avionics upgrades, equipment installation, modification, refurbishments, and other specialized services for piston, turboprop, and jet aircraft. The company has a hangar to accommodate midsize aircraft and another for aircraft up to the size of a Boeing 737.
