ASG provides daily line maintenance and defect rectification support under a contract with Blue Islands to their ATR 72 aircraft operating to and from Guernsey.  This week, ASG was able to respond to an additional requirement for a propeller bulkhead replacement.  This involved removing the propeller, installing a new bulkhead, refitting the propeller and conducting engine set-up at ASG’s premises in Guernsey.

Gary Philips, ASG’s Engineering Manager, said:  “This was an interesting operation on a larger aircraft than we normally see in our hangarage facilities.  I was pleased that our professional team of engineers responded so positively to meet the Blue Islands request.  We look forward to conducting more work of this nature in the future.”
