Jet Aviation Singapore receives FAA approval for the Gulfstream G650April 21, 2015
Jet Aviation Singapore recently received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to provide line and base maintenance to Gulfstream G650 aircraft. The company also added repair station approval for Thailand DCA.
As a Factory Authorized Service Center and Warranty Repair Facility for the Gulfstream series, the FAA approval permits Jet Aviation Singapore to extend warranty line and base maintenance support to owners and operators of G650 aircraft registered in the U.S.
“We are consistently seeing more operational activity of long-range, large cabin aircraft across Asia, the Pacific and Australasia, and several new aircraft deliveries are expected in the region over the next few years,” said John Riggir, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Singapore. “With approximately two thirds of the aircraft we service in Singapore representing Gulfstream, I’ve no doubt that our extended support capabilities for the G650 will be well received by the market.”
Since opening its doors last year, Jet Aviation Singapore has performed a 96-month inspection on a Bombardier Challenger, two 4C inspections on Global Express and a 96-month inspection on a GIV, including painting and refurbishing the interior. The company is currently gearing up for multiple 8C inspections of Global Express aircraft later this year.
“We built our new hangar in direct response to growing demand for large, long-range business jets in the region,” says Stefan Benz, vice president of MRO and FBO Services in EMEA and Asia. “We are pleased to see our capabilities continue to grow along with our confidence in the investments we have made in this very important market.”
The 7,500 square-meter hangar at Jet Aviation Singapore permits up to eight Gulfstream G650, eight Bombardier Global Express 7000 aircraft or three Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) or Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ).
