Jet Aviation adds CAAC approvals for ACJ, BBJ and Gulfstream G650 aircraft
Jet Aviation Singapore has extended its capabilities with approvals received from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) for the Airbus Corporate Jet (ACJ) series, the Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) series, and Gulfstream G650 and G650ER aircraft.
The company has also added the G650 and 650ER to its Malaysia DCA. Jet Aviation’s MRO facility in Singapore is now authorised to support 72-month inspections for the ACJ and BBJ.
With the growing fleet of Gulfstream G650s registered in China, the company took the opportunity to add the G650 and G650ER to its CAAC approvals for Gulfstream G450 and G550 aircraft.
John Riggir, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO operation at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore, said: “These service ratings in Singapore enable Jet Aviation to provide full support to ACJ, BBJ and G650 series aircraft across notable airworthiness authorities that now include Singapore, China, the United States, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands.”
To support the pending arrival of two Malaysian-registered G650s, it also added the Gulfstream G650 and G650ER aircraft to its Malaysian Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) approval.
Jet Aviation is building a new hangar in Singapore to meet demand for business aviation services in the region. The facility’s new third hangar will accommodate up to two BBJs or five Gulfstream G550 aircraft. It will be officially opened during the Singapore Airshow in February 2018.
“The third hangar facility will allow the company to better accommodate large business aviation aircraft, while providing a convenient and well-positioned full service option for corporate jets in the region, particularly these long-range aircraft,” added Riggir.
