RUAG expands Dornier 228 ASC capabilities


MRO / EUROPE | 12/01/2017

RUAG Aviation has expanded its Dornier 228 service capabilities, through the authorization of its company-owned Bern-Belp location in Switzerland as an official MRO service center.

As OEM of the Dornier 228, RUAG is currently taking an active role in determining the quality of reliable MRO support, refurbishments, system upgrades and accurate spare parts sourcing available to its Dornier 228 customers.

“Our commitment to supporting owners and operators of Dornier 228 aircraft is strong,” explains RUAG Aviation Senior VP Business Jets, Dornier 228 & Components Volker Wallrodt. “The expansion of our ASC network to include the Bern site as the second RUAG-owned service facility confirms this dedication and is one more step in fulfilling the pressing needs of the Dornier 228 community.”

Regarded as the first step towards an extended service center network, the selection of another ASC recognizes the necessity for providing state-of-the-art customer service to all Dornier 228 operators independent of geography. “Our decision to establish this new ASC for Dornier 228 in Bern is deliberate,” confirms Wallrodt. “RUAG Aviation in Bern has developed an outstanding international reputation for complete life-cycle support, MRO services, system upgrades, and refurbishments for turboprop aircraft. As well, the Central European location provides easy and convenient accessibility for our customers.”
