FAA awards G200 approval to Jet Aviation Dubai


Company will seek to gain EASA 145 approval for both G150 and G200 at their next scheduled review at the end of November

Jet Aviation Dubai has gained
Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) approval to perform base and line maintenance
on Gulfstream G200 aircraft. The company also expects to receive approval for
G150 aircraft in the fourth quarter 2011. With these approvals, the company
will be authorised to perform base and line maintenance on the entire fleet of
Gulfstream business aircraft in January 2012.

Jet Aviation Dubai recently
added the Gulfstream 200 to its FAA approval schedule and will add approval for
the Gulfstream 150 by year’s end. These approvals will authorise the company to
provide base and line maintenance support to the entire Gulfstream family.

“With these additional
approvals, we will extend our support capabilities to the complete Gulfstream
series,” says Michael Rücker, vice president and general manager of Jet
Aviation Dubai. “The ability to provide comprehensive support under one roof
demonstrates our commitment to safety, quality and security and directly
benefits our Gulfstream customers in the region.”

The company will seek EASA
145 approval for the newly added Gulfstream G200 and G150 type aircraft
following their scheduled EASA review at the end of this month. EASA 145
approval is expected in the first quarter 2012.
