Hong Kong-based Metrojet Limited is the first MRO to have completed the installation of the Bizjet Mobile System on a Bombardier Global 5000 aircraft.  The Bizjet Mobile System provides a platform for the passengers and crew members to communicate via mobile devices while on board, without the need of setting up a broadband system and network for the aircraft.

On-site support from Bombardier was not possible due to CoVID-19 travel restrictions however the Metrojet team persevered on the first of its kind installation on a Global 5000.  The Metrojet Avionics team managed to complete the project from scratch in just two weeks, from coordinating draft and design with the design house online, wire routing, installation, through to obtaining final authority approval.

Mr. Dave Yip, Metrojet’s GM HK MRO, said, “It was a great achievement by the team! Though a few difficulties regarding wire routing and connector location were encountered during the project, our Avionics Supervisor, Perry Law and the team finished the job on schedule and fulfilled the client request.  At Metrojet, we continue to work hard to adhere to our company motto; ‘evolve with our clients in mind’.”

Established in 1997, Metrojet as part of the Kadoorie Group, pioneered business aviation services in Hong Kong and remains one of the foremost safety- and customer-focussed business jet operators and maintenance providers in the Asia Pacific region. The company provides all-inclusive aircraft management, maintenance and aviation consultancy services to our growing business aviation customer base.
