When your business jet goes AOG, call our AOG assistance team and we’ll help you get your aircraft back into the air just as soon as we can evening if it’s late Friday evening in Georgia. In fact we are so good at it, we’ve reduced one client’s charter fleet downtime by approximately 10% (to the great pleasure of the CFO). So next time why not give us a call first?
“Thank you Sergio and Rommy for supporting this AOG event, it is an extraordinary effort and we really appreciate it.” Regional Support, North Asia, Bombardier
A Friday afternoon call from the largest world wide corporate jet operator for a Citation XLS AOG in Dublin. Parts ordered, engineers despatched, less than 24hrs later and the aircraft is back in service. “Thank you very much for your prompt support , we will come back again soon.”
“On behalf of AirX Charter we would like to thank Gama Aviation for an exceptional AOG service. We contacted Gama Aviation regarding our Boeing Business Jet which had gone AOG on arrival at Farnborough. Gama Aviation spent the best part of a day contacting 145’s trying to help us. By the following day Gama Aviation had not only found engineers, but had arranged access to the plane, security passes and assisted engineers through the whole process – whilst keeping our CAMO team updated on the progress.
The aircraft was fixed, all paperwork signed off with three hours spare before the crew and passengers were due to arrive. I would not hesitate to recommend Gama Aviation’s AOG Service”.

Our US team and their mobile maintenance units are always available for any ‘go now’ situation. On Tuesday this week our AOG assistance crew in Dallas changed 2 main wheel assemblies during a maintenance event on a Falcon 2000 looking on as it was returned to service later that day.
If you have an AOG situation please contact our AOG Service teams.
Learn more about how we respond to scenarios such as a defect grounding a Bombardier Global with no immediate ground support available from their own MRO team. After the ‘hail Mary’ call was received, our team was rescheduled to come in at midnight (when the spares where due) and work through the night to ensure the aircraft was available the next morning. The aircraft was released on time at 0500L for a 0900L flight.
A third party customer’s Global XRS flew into our Sharjah base with a defect. The aircraft was on the ground for only one day, during which an investigation was carried out, defect MELd, parts ordered and the aircraft departed to Bahrain. The next day we flew an engineer with the parts to Bahrain, met the aircraft on arrival, and replaced the parts and returned the aircraft to service that same day.

“Another aircraft AOG sorted – thank you. The pilot called in at mid-day to report the fault. The engineer arrived on-site a few hours later and the aircraft was returned to service in Palma, Majorca by 19:30 that day. Amazing service.”
