Hong Kong’s Metrojet has been given the title of recognized maintenance facility and mobile repair team for Pratt & Whitney Canada engines. The appointment allows the MRO to provide additional service on P&WC engines, including components, engine changes, troubleshooting and various engine inspections.

Chris Buchholz, CEO of Metrojet, said the company operates a 24/7 maintenance and AOG hotline to support corporate aircraft throughout Asia with a team of more than 70 maintenance professionals. Metrojet manages a $15 million inventory of Gulfstream and other on-site spares at its airside facility, thereby providing regional AOG support for business aircraft.

“Our maintenance department is a fully certified repair station with approvals from both the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department and the FAA and is fully authorized to carry out maintenance on aircraft registered in various countries, including China, Macau, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands,” he said.

Metrojet is already an authorized Gulfstream warranty repair facility as well as an authorized Bombardier service facility for Globals, Challengers and Learjets. The MRO has extensive experience with Pratt & Whitney Canada, Rolls-Royce, GE, Honeywell and Turbomeca engines and APUs.
