Jet Aviation Singapore gets FAA approval for Gulfstream G650s
Jet Aviation Singapore has received approval from the US Federal Aviation Administration to provide line and base maintenance to Gulfstream G650 aircraft. Separately, the company also recieved repair station approval from Thailand’s Department of Civil Aviation.
John Riggir, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Singapore said: “We are consistently seeing more operational activity of long-range, large cabin aircraft across Asia, the Pacific and Australasia, and several new aircraft deliveries are expected in the region over the next few years.”
“With approximately two thirds of the aircraft we service in Singapore representing Gulfstream, I’ve no doubt that our extended support capabilities for the G650 will be well received by the market,” added Riggir.

The Singapore facility opened last year. It has completed a 96-month inspection on a Challenger, two 4C inspections on Global Express aircraft and a 96-month inspection on a GIV, including painting and refurbishing the interior. The company is currently gearing up for several Global Express 8C inspections later this year.
Stefan Benz, vice president of MRO and FBO Services in EMEA and Asia said: “We built our new hangar in direct response to growing demand for large, long-range business jets in the region.”
“We are pleased to see our capabilities continue to grow along with our confidence in the investments we have made in this very important market,” Benz added.
The Singapore hangar is able to park and maintain up to eight Gulfstream G650s or Bombardier Global Express 7000 aircraft or three Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) or Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ).
