RUAG International repaints Embraer Legacy 500 aircraft

RUAG MRO International has completed the full repainting of an Embraer Legacy 500 aircraft at their aircraft painting facilities at Munich-Oberpfaffenhofen. An Embraer Authorized Service Center since 2013, RUAG delivered the aircraft on time and to full customer satisfaction. ...

RUAG's in-house painting specialists worked together with the customer to update and restyle the aircraft’s livery. The repainting process began by stripping the aircraft of its previous paint layers to achieve optimal coating quality and durable skin protection. The owner’s personalized design featured multiple dynamic stripes on the fuselage and tail in bold-to-fading shades of black and gray.  

Supporting customers with precision aircraft painting is a core capability within RUAG’s one-stop shop approach to aircraft MRO services. “This is our first Legacy 500 exterior,” states Reinhard Imhoff, Sales Manager Exterior Services, RUAG MRO International. “Our highly experienced team has developed a well-deserved reputation for reliability and excellence in aircraft painting and we welcome all aircraft types.”
