Jet Aviation receives EASA Part-145 approval for Bombardier Learjet 60 in Vienna
Jet Aviation’s maintenance facility in Vienna has recently received EASA Part-145 approval for the Bombardier Learjet 60 aircraft.
The company began its first 120-month inspection on a Turkish-based Learjet 60 earlier this month. With this approval, Jet Aviation’s maintenance facility in Vienna is authorised to support the Bombardier Learjet 60 with line and base maintenance services up to and including the 120-month inspection.
“We strive to meet the business aviation service requirements of our customers when and where they need them,” says Hakan Tin, managing director of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO facility in Vienna. “As a mid-size, medium-range business jet, the Learjet 60 is a popular model in Europe and this approval provides much-needed maintenance support to aircraft owners and operators throughout the region.”
Jet Aviation Vienna was founded in September 2014 when Jet Aviation entered agreements with GATE V and FAME, the previous MRO and FBO service providers at Vienna International airport. From a newly constructed 4,000 square meter hangar facility, the company operates a Cessna Authorised Service Centre that provides scheduled and unscheduled maintenance to Cessna Citation aircraft, in addition to off-site AOG services. Jet Aviation Vienna also supports line and base maintenance and AOG services for Bombardier Learjet 60 and Challenger 300/350/604/605 aircraft, as well as line maintenance for Bombardier Learjet 45; Challenger 650; Global 5000/6000, Global Express and Global Express XRS series aircraft; and the Gulfstream GV-SP series. The MRO facility has 2,000 square metres of shops and office space. FBO amenities include an operations office, a crew lounge and access to a VIP passenger lounge.
Jet Aviation, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics, was founded in Switzerland in 1967 and is one of the leading business aviation services companies in the world. The company provides maintenance, completions and refurbishment, engineering, FBO and fuel services, along with aircraft management, charter services and personnel services. Jet Aviation’s European and U.S. aircraft management and charter divisions jointly operate a fleet of some 300 aircraft.
