Citation AOG Maintenance Offered At New Zurich Service Center
Cessna has begun offering "aircraft on ground" (AOG) maintenance on Cessna 208 Caravan model aircraft at their Citation Service Center in Zurich, Switzerland. The company recently announced that United States based factory-owned Citation Service Centers would perform similar unscheduled AOG maintenance on Cessna's 208 model Caravan aircraft.
"The Caravan is a versatile aircraft, popular in many parts of the world. Offering AOG service Zurich is an important step in delivering the level of service our customers require," said Jodi Noah, Cessna senior vice president of single engine and turboprop aircraft, speaking at Aero Friedrichshafen this week. "There are more than 2,000 Cessna Caravan aircraft all over the world, and extending our service network capabilities into the heart of Europe provides a realistic solution for not only the European Caravan operator's maintenance needs, but also the needs of Caravan operators throughout the region."
Cessna also owns and operates three Mobile Service Units in Europe – vehicles equipped to perform in-the-field maintenance on aircraft up to and including engine replacements. The Mobile Service Unit based in Zurich will now be certified to perform AOG maintenance on Caravan aircraft, in addition to the family of Citation jets.
Employees at the Zurich service centers have already received the necessary training, and the tooling is in place. "We are excited to be able to provide AOG maintenance for the 208," said Paul Kempf, general manager of the Citation Service Center in Zurich. "When your aircraft is AOG, you need critical parts and work completed quickly. No one knows the Cessna product better than Cessnans."
