Gama Support Services FZE gains UAE Part 145
Gama has announced that the United Arab Emirates
General Civil Aviation Authority (‘UAE GCAA’) has awarded Gama Support Services
CAR 145 Approval, permitting it to undertake Line Maintenance on Challenger 604
and 605 business jets and King Air B300 turboprop aircraft.
This builds on the recent achievement of GSS FZE’s sister company, Gama Aviation FZE, becoming one of the first UAE
based business jet operators to achieve CAR Part M Maintenance Management
Approval and the creation of a new and exclusive VIP FBO (Fixed Base Operation) at Sharjah International Airport
earlier this year.
Future investment by Gama at
Sharjah International Airport includes the further development hangar
facilities, additional maintenance approvals and an increase in the number of
locally employed engineers, all headed by Oliver Walters, Gama’s engineering manager.
“We are delighted that the
UAE GCAA has recognised Gama’s commitment to investing, supporting and growing
business aviation services in the region,” said Dave Edwards, managing director,
Gama Aviation FZE. “Our Sharjah FBO has established itself as a ‘stress-free’
gateway for business and private visitors to Sharjah, Dubai
and the Northern Emirates and the first choice technical stop for business jet
operators through the Middle East. I know our
customers will appreciate the additional maintenance and management services we
have been approved to provide.”
