Notice to visitors
Our facility at Bournemouth includes a working repair and maintenance hangar, where the personal safety of our staff and authorised visitors and the safety and security of our clients’ assets are of paramount importance.
In order to maintain the standards of security we require and our clients expect, certain security-related restrictions are in place as regards proposed visits to the facility, as follows:
All proposed visitors to the site will be required to provide an original, internationally recognised form of ID when booking in at Reception; such as a Passport or National ID card. An employer company identification card or pass is useful in addition but is not acceptable ID by itself.
For third country nationals wishing to visit the site, at least 72 hours prior notice is likely to be required to visit the site, to enable us to complete such advance checks as we consider necessary.
We reserve the right in our sole discretion to restrict or deny access to the working hangar, or to areas within it.
The transit of firearms, explosives or other restricted items through the hangar facilities is strictly prohibited, except on prior notice and in compliance with such additional safety and security measures as we require. All necessary permits and/or other paperwork and border / security checks for such transits must be obtained prior to their arrival at the site and produced on arrival
Bombardier Challenger 604. Major input.
Our Bournemouth team are currently in work with a Bombardier Challenger 604 for the following base maintenance inputs. The aircraft, is the first of its type having a major maintenance input at our new facility at Bournemouth International Airport.
With many aircraft coming into another cycle of major checks, with 96 and 180 month major inspections (CL604) a common occurrence for owners, as well as landing gear overhauls at 60 and 120 months plus the requirements of new air traffic control mandates such as FANS-1/A, CPDLC and ADS-B Out, the planning and selection of base maintenance facilities to minimise downtime has become an art.
“Just a quick note to say thanks very much to all the guys for the input. A few sectors on, and all is working 100%.”
Our Bournemouth and Palm Beach International Challenger base maintenance facilities have a strong track record in delivering line and base maintenance services for the Challenger 600 series, delivering tasks such as:
300 hr, 24 month, 48 month and 96 month checks
Comms upgrades / installations
King Air maintenance centre
As a Beechcraft authorised service facility we provide comprehensive maintenance services covering base maintenance and phase checks, King Air modifications, King Air cold working and King Air ADS-B upgrades.
We offer King Air maintenance support through our Bournemouth, Aberdeen and Glasgow locations across a wide number of certificates including FAA, EASA, Cayman, Bermudan and Isle of Man. Typical tasks include:
ADS-B OUT (Automatic Dependant Surveillance – Broadcast) requires that the aircraft transmits its own GPS position via the Mode S transponder, regardless of whether the aircraft is being interrogated by a ground radar or by other aircraft’s TCAS. The GPS source must meet high accuracy and integrity requirements only available from a qualified WAAS GPS.
The European airspace mandate for ADS-B Out is effective from June 2020, and from January 2020 for US operations.
