ExecuJet Haite completes the first 96-month Inspection of a Legacy 650 in China
27 January 2021 – ExecuJet Haite Aviation Services China completed the first 96-month check on a Chinese registered Embraer Legacy 650. The 96-month inspection is the most extensive on this airframe and entails over 3,000 labour man-hours. The aircraft was delivered on schedule to the customer in only 8 weeks with very limited obstacles along the way mainly related to the impact of Covid-19 upon logistics.
The 96-month inspection consists of the full removal of interior down to the fuselage frames for structural inspection. Both the forward and ventral fuel tanks are also removed for thorough inspection as well as the wing leading edges, flaps, landing gear and flight controls.
“We continue to demonstrate our proficiency in performing complex heavy base maintenance projects and provide our customers with both cost effective and high-quality services unparallel in China,” says Paul Desgrosseilliers, General Manager at ExecuJet Haite.
ExecuJet Haite holds CAAC, EASA, FAA, Cayman, Bermuda, Aruba, Hong Kong, and Macau approvals and offers line and base maintenance support on multiple Embraer Executive Jets, Dassault, Bombardier, and Gulfstream models, as well as line support for the Boeing business jet. ExecuJet Haite has been a proud Embraer Authorised Service Centre since 2012.
