TAG Aviation celebrates milestones at Farnborugh

TAG Aviation has celebrated the 15th anniversary of maintenance services ops at TAG Farnborough Airport and has delivered its first 48-month check on a Bombardier Challenger 350.

This month TAG Aviation Farnborough Maintenance Services (TFMS) has marked the 15th year of maintenance services operations from its base at the UK business airport.

The significant milestone coincides with TFMS’s release of one of the World’s first 48-month base checks on a Bombardier CL350 aircraft. The comprehensive maintenance check, undertaken at TAG Aviation’s Bombardier approved (ASF) Farnborough included a complete cabin removal and refit.

Over recent years TAG Engineering Ltd (which now operates under the unified brand TAG Aviation Maintenance Services as part of the unique Pan-European maintenance services network of TAG Aviation) has gone from strength to strength delivering 100,000 hours of maintenance works in 2018, all within a very competitive environment.

“Our aim is to be the most flexible and customer-focused European line and base station support services centre, not necessarily the biggest,” said TFMS managing director and VP maintenance operations, TAG Aviation Europe, Cyrille Pillet. “We pride ourselves on developing lasting relationships which are based on mutual trust and flexibility and to meeting maintenance programme deliveries on time for each one of our valued customers – their perception is our reality!”

All line and base maintenance stations operated by TAG Aviation Maintenance Service Centres are Bombardier Approved Service Facilities (ASF) and Dassault Approved Service Centres (ASC). The TAG Farnborough location boasts a dedicated line operation facility which annually provides maintenance support to over 1600 aircraft.

In the past few years TFMS has performed over 60 heavy maintenance checks ranging from 48-month to 120-month inputs on Bombardier Challenger and Global Express aircraft.
