Jet Aviation Basel readies for Boeing 787 VVIP interior completions
Basel, Switzerland — Jet Aviation Basel readies for Boeing 787 VIP interior completions, designing solutions unique to the complex 787 airframe and completing training of licensed technicians to maintain and support the aircraft at its Basel facility.
Jet Aviation Basel has sent a team of Part 145 licensed engineers from its completions center to receive EASA Part 66 B1/B2 type training on the B787 at Boeing's facilities in Seattle. The company will now apply for approval from the authorities to add the B787 to its capability list.
"Our engineers are working closely with Boeing 787 training personnel to gain experience and proficiency with the new revolutionary Boeing 787 aircraft," said Ruedi Kraft, vice president, Market Development & Completions Sales for Jet Aviation Basel.
"The all-composite structures of the Boeing 787 present a unique set of requirements for interior completions," said Neil Boyle, Jet Aviation Basel's vice president and general manager of the Completions center. "A major priority for us is to further our employees' understanding of and training in advanced aviation technology to ensure we meet customer requirements and the highest business aviation standards. We have heavily invested in the new technologies of the Boeing 787 to master their impacts on the completions process for VVIP aircraft and will continue to devote resources to the ongoing professional development of our employees."
Jet Aviation engineers have already completed an advanced structural repairs training course provided by Boeing for B787 aircraft.
