RUAG MRO International has completed the first inspection of an NH90 transport helicopter for the German Bundeswehr in Oberpfaffenhofen.

Before commencing work on the NH90 in 2018, RUAG obtained the related type rating from the German Military Aviation Authority. This involved meeting all necessary requirements, such as personnel certifications, process instructions, technical documentation and infrastructure. Fully equipped aircraft docking facilities and on-site special tooling were also required.

Information technology services also needed to be prepared for the NH90 inspections. This required the Oberpfaffenhofen site to implement the requisite SASPF software, covering project management, logistics and operations management, and all dock workstations.

Volker Wallrodt, senior vice president business jets, Dornier 228, military, RUAG MRO International, said: ‘Our helicopter specialists prove many years of experience in the maintenance of military helicopters. This successful NH90 inspection confirms our ability to apply our experience to include the Bundeswehr’s most advanced helicopter type as well.’
