Recently our Widebody Engine Change shelter has been put to good use by one of our clients for an Engine Change procedure in challenging arctic conditions at Iqaluit in North Eastern Canada. The engine change was performed on a leading European airline’s B777 Aircraft which required the emergency work at short notice. The flight, en route from Zurich to Los Angeles, successfully made an emergency landing at Iqaluit airport after experiencing engine failure.
The portable inflatable hangar has allowed for the work to be carried out in a heated, sheltered environment. The use of our IglooMX® Tents meant that the work could be carried out in the absence of a nearby Hangar.
