Marshall Civil Aerospace, part of the Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, has been contracted by luxury charter aviation firm Acropolis Aviation as its prime maintenance contractor for Airbus Corporate Jet (ACJ) MRO work.
This is Marshall Civil Aerospace’s first ACJ contract, and the firm will also work on Acropolis’ new ACJ320neo which is scheduled to enter service in late 2019.
Acropolis Technical Director Aidan Leitner-Murphy confirmed. Marshall’s “superb team approach and excellent work,” performed on a major six-year check on G-NOAH, Acropolis’ flagship Airbus ACJ319 at Marshall Cambridge HQ was attributed as the reason by Acropolis Aviation for its selection as its ACJ MRO provider.
Marshall performed significant airframe inspections for the project, removing the entire interior for inspection and overhaul. Refitting was then completed in just five weeks and also extended to an upgrade of cabin furnishings.
The ACJ319 (G-NOAH), features an open-plan forward lounge, intimate rear lounge, separated by a mid-cabin conference and dining room.
A king-size bed, en suite bathroom and a large, rectangular shower (the first to be installed in an ACJ) are part of the private master bedroom features. The aircraft has seating for 19 passengers and can accommodate up to 13 on fully lie-flat beds.
Acropolis Aviation is based at TAG Farnborough Airport, and its flagship Airbus ACJ319 entered service in March 2010.
