Jet Aviation Singapore recently delivered the first 8C (120-month) inspection undertaken in Asia on a Bombardier Global Express. In parallel with the heavy inspection, the company further completed a full interior refurbishment and exterior repaint.

The 10-year 8C inspection is the largest maintenance event for Bombardier’s Global Express aircraft, requiring extensive dismantling of the cabin for a thorough check of the airframe and structures. To take advantage of the disassembled aircraft and thereby reduce downtime, Jet Aviation Singapore simultaneously undertook a full interior refurbishment, including interior veneer, headliner, sidewalls and galley refurbishment. In addition, the company accomplished with this delivery the first full exterior strip and repaint on this type of aircraft in the region.

“This has been a milestone project for Jet Aviation Singapore, demonstrating our high standards of workmanship and expertise,” said John Riggir, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Singapore. “We built our new hangar at Seletar Aerospace Park precisely for projects of this scope and scale. This particular project was delivered on time and budget to a very satisfied customer, and I am pleased to add that we will commence our second 8C inspection for an undisclosed client in January 2016.”

Earlier this year, Jet Aviation Singapore received full FAA approval for its new Interior Shop. In September, it secured maintenance approval from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to support Chinese operators of Bombardier and Gulfstream aircraft. The company’s 7,500 square-meter hangar can accommodate up to eight Gulfstream G650, eight Bombardier Global Express 7000 aircraft or three Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) or Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ).
