VIP Paint+ job for newly manufactured Global 7500



The German aircraft manufacturer General Atomics AeroTec Systems (GA-ATS) has carried out a completely new paint job for a Global 7500 Business Jet at the VIP Paint+ Shop on its factory premises in Oberpfaffenhofen.

The G7500, which was newly built by Bombardier, received a completely new livery at the EDMO Munich-Oberpfaffenhofen airport. It was delivered as a "Green" aircraft with a bare aluminum surface and only one protective primer layer to receive a brand-new initial paint by General Atomics AeroTec Systems.

The paint process included the application of the functional corrosion protection, a sanding primer and the manual filling of all rivets in the fuselage area. This was followed by the multi-coat metallic paint. The final step was the clear paint finish with two coats.

The jet was given an impressive design with a 25-meter stripe design from the tail to the cockpit. A total of 8 color shades were mixed from 3 different orange and red colors to create an even, homogeneous color flow from light to dark over the length of the design strip. The Eagle logo and all labelling was applied using stencils created on the computer.

Impressive work by the team of experts

Up to 8 painters were working on the aircraft at the same time which, in addition to the painters' outstanding skills, also requires perfect coordination within the team.

Finally, the last cosmetic finishing touches were added, and minimal color adjustments were made in the final work step, the so-called detailing. Representatives of the customer and Bombardier were present at the final acceptance. They were very pleased with the work, mentioning that the execution of the paint was very well done for such a complex color scheme.

The painting of the Global 7500 thus joins the long list of highlight projects from the VIP Paint+ Shop of General Atomics AeroTec Systems. The company operates a One-Stop-Shop for aircraft in the heart of Europe. In addition to MRO, Upgrades and Modifications for the Do228 and Embraer and Bombardier Business Jets, the VIP Paint+ Shop at the Oberpfaffenhofen site can paint almost all aircraft sizes with the highest quality.
