S7 Technics has dismantled the keel of a cargo Boeing 737 aircraft in the framework of a C-check. Until 2012, the aircraft had been flown as a passenger aircraft and was then converted into a cargo aircraft and transferred to Atran Airline.
During the C-check maintenance of the cargo Boeing 737, part of the elements of the power structure of the aircraft was replaced – the longitudinal and transverse floor beams of the main cargo deck. Four specialists of the engineering center, 18 aircraft technicians, two lifts and a special crane were involved in the process.
After work was completed, pilots from Atran Airline performed a test flight from Domodedovo airport to Vnukovo.
“Maintaining the airworthiness of the Atran fleet is the key to providing high – quality services to our customers,” said Vitaly Andreev, CEO of Atran Airline. “In 2020, the serviceability and availability of cargo aircraft is particularly important, since it is cargo carriers that have made a huge contribution to the fight against the spread of COVID-19, delivering medical equipment, personal protective equipment and essential goods. We are very happy that S7 Technics, which we have been working with for many years, always provides a high-level service.”
