General Atomics AeroTec Systems presents its own One-Stop-Shop Concept at EBACE aerospace exhibition in Geneva

OBERPFAFFENHOFEN/GENEVA - May 18, 2022 -  Business Aviation is one of three core competencies that General Atomics AeroTec Systems (GA-ATS) has been offering at Oberpfaffenhofen Airport since last March. From May 23 - 25, 2022, the business unit will present itself at the EBACE air show at booth number W58 in Geneva (GA-ATS BA). The Part 145 maintenance facility's range of services includes complex structural repairs, complete aircraft painting, upgrades and modifications, aircraft retrofits and component maintenance, including life rafts.

The operational capability of business aircraft is crucial for the realization of individual requirements in international business. This becomes particularly evident when scheduled maintenance measures are due. The Business Aviation business unit offers a combination of maintenance, service bulletin (SB) resolutions, avionics and system upgrades, cabin refurbishment and outfitting, aircraft painting and color schemes. It focuses on safety, short turnaround times and high service quality, which is also ensured quickly, precisely and reliably via the inhouse MRO components store.


Short processing times and a wealth of experience 
"The decades of experience of our staff and our short turnaround times make us the preferred provider of MRO services," explains Christian Karl, Head of Sales Business Aviation. He adds: "Industry leaders and OEMs alike turn to our MRO shop for maintenance, repair, overhaul, modification, readout, evaluation, recoding, capacity testing and battery service, as well as rental services."

One-Stop-Shop in Oberpfaffenhofen 
The specialists from Oberpfaffenhofen summarize their concept as a one-stop shop. Custom-ers receive maximum service with minimum turnaround time at a single location. In addition, the business unit offers expert support and advice for AOG events or pre-purchase inspections ("PPI"). Furthermore, General Atomics AeroTec Systems specialists are recognized market leaders in aircraft component MRO and certification.
