Jet Aviation is pleased to announce that its third hangar project at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore is now in operation. The official opening ceremony will be held during the Singapore Airshow in February 2018.

Bringing much needed aircraft service capacity to the region, the 3,850-square-meter hangar began operation in early December. The MRO facility is currently providing scheduled base maintenance to an ACJ, a BBJ and a Gulfstream G550 from the new hangar.

“We built this new hangar to help meet strong demand for local business aviation services, especially for more mature long-range aircraft” says John Riggir, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO facility in Singapore. ”Our investment in the future with this new hangar clearly demonstrates our commitment to meeting the needs of our customers.”

Jet Aviation’s third new hangar in Singapore features a larger, upgraded Interior Shop, including a 300-square-meter extension for drying rooms, a new soft goods area and Wood Shop. The facility has also recently been approved as an Upholsterer of Rockwell Collins (formerly B/E Areospace) 16G seating. As the first and only approved 16G seating center in Asia, Jet Aviation is now authorized to re-foam and re-style 16G seats, including that of China-registered aircraft.

The new hangar can accommodate up to two BBJs or Airbus ACJs or five Gulfstream G550 aircraft.
