Gulfstream Beijing awarded new approvals
The Beijing service centre was awarded approvals to carry out maintenance on Gulfstream jets registered in Hong Kong and Macau.
The approval was granted through a Joint Maintenance Management (JMM) agreement among the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), the Civil Aviation Department of Hong Kong and the Civil Aviation Authority of Macau SAR.
Under the agreement, Gulfstream Beijing can perform maintenance and upgrades on airframes, avionics, powerplants and interiors on Gulfstream G550, G450 and G200 aircraft registered in Hong Kong and Macau.
“The JMM approval is welcome news for many of our Hong Kong and Macau operators who travel frequently to Beijing and nearby cities,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “As Gulfstream Beijing grows, our goal is to add authorizations to give our customers more options for maintenance.”
Well over 200 Gulfstream aircraft are based in the Asia-Pacific region, including more than 45 in Hong Kong and Macau.
