Also in 2015, Bombardier Business Aircraft’s Service Centre network supported more than 8,000 maintenance events, a 17 per cent increase over 2014.
Bombardier Business Aircraft’s five wholly-owned Service Centres in the U.S. have been awarded 2015 Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Diamond Award Certificates of Excellence – the industry’s highest honour for aviation maintenance.
