Jet Aviation has extended its capabilities in Singapore with recent 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 authorized to support 72-month inspections for the ACJ series and the BBJ series. Given the growing fleet of Gulfstream G650s registered in China, the company also took this opportunity to add the G650 and G650ER to its already comprehensive CAAC approvals for Gulfstream G450 and G550 aircraft.

“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,” said John Riggir, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO operation at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore.

Jet Aviation received repair station rating from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for ACJ series aircraft in Singapore last year, and is currently completing its first significant maintenance inspection on a regional customer’s ACJ318. 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 growing 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. The 3,850-square-meter tenant hangar will also feature a larger, upgraded Interior shop including a 300 square-meter extension for curing rooms, a soft goods area and a Wood shop.

The official opening ceremony will be held for the hangar during the Singapore Airshow in February 2018. As part of the project, a new 350-square-meter storage area and workshop space has already been handed over to the company. 

“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,” adds Riggir.
