At Moscow Vnukovo airport, Jet Aviation has completed the steps to operate as an independent Russian legal entity. The company has operated since late 2007 as
a branch of Jet Aviation Dusseldorf. The facility now provides maintenance services under its own EASA Part 145 approval.

According to Ian Ludlow, managing director of Jet Aviation Moscow Vnukovo, “The EASA 145 maintenance approval gives us greater flexibility to tailor our portfolio of aircraft services to match our customer fleet profile and requirements.”

Jet Aviation Moscow Vnukovo at Vnukovo International Airport provides 24/7 technical maintenance services, including line maintenance, troubleshooting and AOG services, to Bombardier, Gulfstream, Embraer and Hawker operators.

In addition, the company’s Dubai facility has received Jordan CARC approval to work on Jordanian-registered Hawker Beechcraft aircraft and Gulfstream G450s.
The more than 45,000-sq-ft facility includes both line maintenance and an FBO operation. The MRO holds EASA, Bermuda DCA, Cayman CAA, Jordan CARC, Pakistan CAA, Saudi Arabia PCA and UAE GCAA approvals. It is also an authorized service center for maintenance and warranty support of the Boeing BBJ, Gulfstream IV/V, Dassault Falcon 900 and 2000 and Hawker Beechcraft 800 series.

In Brazil, Jet Aviation has begun offering maintenance services from its Sorocaba MRO facility. The company has been awarded a repair station certificate by the national civil aviation authority in Brazil, Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil (ANAC). The designation allows the MRO to provide line maintenance, engine and airframe inspections and repairs for the Gulfstream G200. Jet Aviation plans to add Gulfstream V, G450 and G550 certification in the future.
