Hawker Beechcraft (HBC) has appointed Metrojet Hong Kong to its network of authorized service centers to support its Hawker 900/800/700 series. Metrojet, located on Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok International Airport, is the first HBC-authorized service facility in Hong Kong. “It is well positioned to support both the growing regional market and the HBC demonstration fleet serving China and the Pacific Rim,” Christi Tannahill, HBC vice president for global customer support, told AIN. “We currently have about 500 aircraft in the Asia-Pacific region. Metrojet joins eight other authorized service centers in the region.” The MRO provides engine and airframe service, avionics line maintenance, routine inspections, interior and exterior cleaning and detailing, and scheduled base inspections. Its maintenance department is a certified repair station with approvals from the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department and the FAA. It is also authorized to do maintenance on aircraft registered in China, Macau, Malaysia, Bermuda, Cayman Islands and Isle of Man. “Training for Metrojet maintenance personnel is being conducted by FlightSafety International,” Tannahill said.
