The Engineering Department is being kept busy. Some of the most recent projects include:
Far East Dauphin’s
As an approved maintenance facility for CHC Helicopters, two AS365N2 Dauphin helicopters, being operated in Sudan, were sent to us for maintenance and conversion on to the Dutch register in preparation for re–sale. Both aircraft underwent extensive maintenance in order for them to be released back to service.
Multiflight engineers completed all the work within the stipulated contract time, and the aircraft successfully completed the required flight testing programme. Both helicopters have now been dismantled and shipped out to Malaysia and Singapore on 747 freighters to their new owners: Eurocopter South East Asia.
G–DBOK (ex N620LH ) has been put on the GB register and has been sold to a new owner. All the work necessary to convert the aircraft and obtain its C of A was carried out in–house by Multiflight.
New AS355F2 added to our Charter Fleet. Following various maintenance inspections and avionic upgrades at Multiflight we are pleased to retain the use and the maintenance contract for this aircraft. G–ECOU has had a complete internal and external re trim.
As an authorised Cirrus service centre, the first annual inspection has been carried out on a Cirrus SR22 aircraft. Multiflight technicians completed the task on time but did require support from Cirrus regards some undercarriage related defects found during the inspection. These problems were rectified and the aircraft returned to service.
