Jet Aviation Dubai receives FAA approval for testing shop
Jet Aviation Dubai has received FAA approval for its recently added a non-destructive testing (NDT) shop.
With this approval, Jet Aviation Dubai expands its maintenance capabilities to include florescent penetrant testing (FT), ultrasonic testing (UT) and eddy current testing (ET). The company is also working to secure General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) approval for the United Arab Emirates as well as EASA approval.
“We are firmly committed to the ongoing improvement of our services for which we regularly seek the input of our customers.”
Hardy Butschi, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Dubai said: “We are firmly committed to the ongoing improvement of our services for which we regularly seek the input of our customers.”
“The decision to expand our capabilities to offer a seamless end-to-end NDT service was made in direct response to customer feedback. We believe our on-site NDT Shop will also help us to improve efficiencies in our Wheel Shop services, while further enhancing our structural inspection and repair capabilities under one roof,” added Butschi.
