Jet Aviation Basel reorganises


Basel creates individual completions and maintenance organisations

Jet Aviation has
reorganised into two independently managed organisations for completions and
maintenance at its Basel
location. Neil Boyle has been appointed vice president completions and Johannes
Turzer as vice president maintenance at Jet Aviation Basel.
“Each organization will be streamlined for maximum effectiveness,
establishing accountability and operational control by line of business, which
will help us to further improve our processes and reduce costs,” said Dan
Clare, president of the Jet Aviation Group. “This initiative helps keep us
competitive now and as we look to our future.”
Neil Boyle, who joined Jet Aviation Basel from Gulfstream Aerospace
in July 2011 to lead the company’s production business, was appointed vice
president of the newly formed completions organization. Neil holds an FAA
Airframe and Power Plant Certificate (A&P), a certificate in
aerospace/aviation safety, and a Bachelor’s degree in Professional Aeronautics
from Embry-Riddle
Aeronautical University.
He is also Lean Six Sigma-certified. 
Johannes Turzer, who joined Jet Aviation in 2000 as vice president and general
manager of the company’s MRO and FBO operation in Dusseldorf,
took over the Basel
maintenance operation in July 2011. With his appointment as vice president of
the newly established MRO organization, he is responsible for all
maintenance-related activities at the Basel
site. Both, Boyle and Turzer report directly to Dan Clare.
“We are currently in negotiations with a number of prospects for new
completions business and are optimistic that we will sign a project agreement
in the coming months,” Clare said.
