Jet Aviation Singapore has recently secured aircraft maintenance approval from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has granted Part 145 maintenance facility approval to Jet Aviation Singapore, expanding the company’s maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) capabilities to support Chinese operators of Bombardier and Gulfstream aircraft.

For Gulfstream aircraft, the scope of permissible work is to the largest possible checks on the GV (192-months) and GIV (144-months) aircraft. This renders Jet Aviation Singapore one of just two Gulfstream Aerospace Service Centers (GACs) in the world (the other in Savannah, Georgia) to hold this extent of CAACapproval. The authorization also extends to Bombardier Global Express BD700 series up to 20 year inspections and Challenger 604/605 series up to 24 year inspections. In addition, interior services and approved out-sourcing for paint are allowed, making Singapore an attractive location to feed major projects from this significant market.

“I am extremely proud of my team for their collective efforts and dedication towards obtaining this Certificate,” said John Riggir, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Singapore. “This approval marks the start of a new era of Gulfstream support solutions for operators in the region from China and we look forward to working closely with them as we develop synergies with other authorized GACs to provide the highest service levels possible.”
