Cessna Adds Mobile Service Units In U.S., Europe

Colorado, Indiana, And Lyon, France Get Mobile Maintenance

Cessna says it is adding three new maintenance trucks to its international ground-based Mobile Service Unit (MSU) fleet serving Citations across North America and Europe.

The latest mobile additions to the Citation Service Center support network become active this month. They are positioned in Colorado and Indiana in the U.S. and in Lyon, France. These MSUs will be joined soon by more MSUs in North America, including five in the United States and one in Canada, and another unit in Europe.

The units commissioned this December include one positioned at Centennial Airport's TAC Air facility near Denver, one at Montgomery Aviation at Indianapolis Executive Airport to serve Indiana and parts of Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and Kentucky, and the third, the first European MSU, will be positioned at Aéroport de Lyon-Bron to cover southern France, northern Spain, northern Italy and Geneva, Switzerland.

Operating remotely from fixed maintenance facilities, Cessna's mobile units provide scheduled and unscheduled maintenance in customer hangars. The specially outfitted trucks carry most of the tools and equipment found in Cessna Citation Service Centers and can handle procedures up to and including Citation X engine exchanges.

MSUs perform scheduled maintenance events including phase inspections and Maintenance Steering Group tasked-based inspection documents. MSG is a collaborative effort between Cessna, its customers and the Federal Aviation Administration to develop a safe and economical maintenance program. MSU scheduled and unscheduled services generally are more convenient and less expensive than flying to fixed maintenance locations.

MSUs are currently positioned in Texas, California, Arizona, Florida, Ohio and North Carolina in addition to Colorado and Indiana. Existing units have made more than 900 customer visits in the past year. Cessna MSUs are a key component of the Citation Service Center's ServiceDirect initiative, which also includes AOG Go Teams, the Air Response Team, HomeService, and Temporary Personnel Support.
