RUAG MRO International has received the renewal of its approval status for the Pilatus PC-12. The Authorised Pilatus PC-12 Service Center agreement, issued by Pilatus Aircraft Ltd, ensures the continuity of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for the PC-12 at the RUAG site at Geneva-Meyrin.
RUAG first achieved the Pilatus PC-12 type rating status in 2008.
The dedicated PC-12 team manages an average of 150 aircraft maintenance and support events annually. These include line, base and heavy maintenance checks and AOG events, as well as multi-service visits that feature component and subsystem MRO, avionics upgrades, in-flight entertainment system (IFE) and connectivity integrations and cabin modifications.
“Our Pilatus PC-12 team is highly specialized and knows the aircraft inside and out,” stated Pio Ming, general manager site Geneva, RUAG MRO International. “Over the years, Pilatus PC-12 customers have come to understand that this expertise translates into the prompt and reliable resolution of routine maintenance events and optimised downtimes, all of which means improved aircraft availability and more time in the air,” he added.
