RUAG Aviation has renewed its aircraft sustainment contract with the Netherlands Coastguard, the company announced on 26 January.

Under the agreement, RUAG Aviation will provide full maintenance services for two Dornier 228-212 special mission aircraft from May 2018 for three years.

The maritime patrol aircraft are deployed for tasks including search and rescue, disaster and incident control, environmental supervision and border surveillance.

Volker Wallrodt, SVP, business jets, Dornier 228 and components, RUAG Aviation, said: ‘We are in a unique position to offer comprehensive and integrated support services to the Netherlands Coastguard, as well as to all Dornier 228 operators.

‘Our team of customer support, engineering and technical specialists apply their thorough Dornier 228 knowledge to provide mission-adaptable solutions, upgrades and full life cycle support services.’

RUAG Aviation will be supported by partner Jet Support BV, at Schiphol-Oost.
