ExecuJet complete SAAF King Air refurb
ExecuJet Aviation has completed the refurbishment of a South African Air Force (SAAF) Beechcraft King Air B200.
The King Air was officially handed over on 30 June to the Chief of Air Staff Operations, Maj Gen W. S. Mbambo, at a ceremony held at 28 Squadron, AFB Waterkloof.
ExecuJet was awarded the contract to refurbish the entire SAAF King Air fleet in August 2014, with the first aircraft undergoing maintenance work in November 2014.
Ettore Poggi, VP Africa, ExecuJet Aviation says: “The King Air B200 aircraft has been out of operational service for almost three years and has undergone extensive work by our expert refurbishment team. This included the installation of a new digital Garmin 1000 avionics system, interior and exterior refurbishment as well as a major maintenance inspection. Following extensive testing, we are delighted to hand the aircraft to the SAAF today and look forward to working on the rest of the fleet.”
