AAC Awarded Contract for 747-8i Completion Project
StandardAero subsidiary Associated Air Center (AAC) has been awarded a contract for the VVIP interior completion of a Boeing 747-8I for an undisclosed Middle-Eastern customer.
The Dallas, Texas-based aircraft maintenance center will take delivery of the aircraft during the fourth quarter of 2012. StandardAero said this represents the first Boeing 747-8I series completion project for AAC.
"Today’s announcement is a major win for the AAC team," said Chris Schechter, vice president and general manager at Associated Air Center. "It offers an excellent, long-term work scope and demonstrates that we are in the wide body business to stay, and in a big way, with two large interior completion projects in our hangars."
