Etihad Engineering, the largest commercial aircraft MRO provider in the Middle East, has several BDI deflectors used for full power ground run-ups. While BDI has delivered multiple reconfigurations to accommodate new aircraft, the original BDI deflectors were installed in 1990 for GAMCO, as it was known at the time. Those deflectors are still in use today, along with various new deflectors and upgrade “kits” BDI has installed over the years.
