Ruag's new paint and drying shop at Munich-Oberpfaffenhofen International Airport is now operational. The MRO’s German facility is big enough to paint larger aircraft components such as elevators and rudders, flaps, and cabin components. The proximity of the paint and drying booths expedites workflow and eliminates contamination risk, according to paint shop team leader Stefan Schulz.
The company's shop in Oberpfaffenhofen provides line, base, and heavy maintenance checks, cabin interior restyling and refurbishment, avionics and system upgrades, component services, aircraft painting, modifications, pre-purchase inspections, AOG, and support and consulting. It is an authorized service center for Embraer and a service center for Bombardier, and it is approved for the Gulfstream G550. The company recently performed an Embraer-patented paint technique on a Legacy 500 that prevents cracking along structural joints, and it added the Bombardier Global 7500 to its Part 145 repair station certificate.
Ruag also is an independent supplier, support provider, and integrator of systems and components for civil and military aviation worldwide. It develops and supports simulation and training systems for international security forces and manufactures the Dornier 228 turboprop. Ruag International employs 6,500 people in 14 countries.
