TAG Aviation is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its maintenance operation at the UK’s Farnborough Airport, with the completion of its first 48-month check on a Bombardier Challenger 350. The procedure at the Bombardier authorized service facility (ASF) involved a cabin removal and refit. Over the last few years, TAG Aviation Farnborough Maintenance Services, part of the TAG Aviation Maintenance Services brand (the company’s Pan-European network), has performed more than 60 heavy maintenance checks, ranging from 48-month to 120-month on Bombardier Challenges and Globals.
This past year the location, which is also a Dassault-approved service center, delivered more than 100,000 hours of maintenance work. It has a dedicated line operation facility, which provides maintenance support to more than 1,600 aircraft each year.
“Our aim is to be the most flexible and customer-focused European line and base station support services center, not necessarily the biggest,” noted Cyrille Pillet, the facility’s managing director and vice president of maintenance operations for TAG Aviation Europe. “We pride ourselves on developing lasting relationships based on mutual trust and flexibility and [on making] maintenance program deliveries on time for each one of our valued customers.”
