RUAG repaints Gulfstream G650 aircraft

RUAG MRO International has achieved the full repainting of its first Gulfstream G650 at their aircraft painting facilities at Munich-Oberpfaffenhofen. RUAG completed the project on behalf of a third party maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider and delivered the aircraft on time and to full customer satisfaction. ...

RUAG is continuing to grow its aircraft painting portfolio. The completion of this Gulfstream G650 marks the first aircraft of its type at the aircraft support provider’s painting facilities near Munich.
