Book a slot now to minimize the wait

As the industry recovers from the long recession, sales of used and new aircraft are accelerating. Largely as a result, more and more independent completion and refurbishment shops are building a backlog of orders.

Another reason: the first Global Express XRS business jets from Bombardier are coming in for required major inspections, and a lot of owners are choosing to do cabin refurbishment at the same time. Meanwhile, owners of larger bizliners—Airbus ACJs and Boeing Business Jets—are jostling for refurbishment slots timed to coincide with required 10-year maintenance and inspection checks. At centers approved by Airbus Corporate Jets and Boeing Business Jets to do interior outfitting of their new airplanes, backlogs began growing last year.

A word to the wise: peruse this directory now and, to minimize delays, schedule your job as soon as possible.

“"How many leaders actively seek out and encourage views alien and at odds with their own? All too few...Who in your organization serves as your Challenger In Chief? Interrogating the choices you are considering making? Making you consider the uncontemplated, the unimaginable and that which contradicts or refutes your position? And also challenging you?"”
