Six of ExecuJet Aviation Group’s MROs have been designated Hawker Beechcraft (HBC) authorized service centers.

ExecuJet Dubai recently obtained extension to its EASA and GCAA line and base approvals in support of the Hawker 400XP, 125 Series and 4000. The Dubai maintenance facility tripled capacity with the addition of a new hangar and has more than 135 personnel on its maintenance staff. In addition to supporting the Hawker Beechcraft fleet, ExecuJet works on Gulfstream; Bombardier’s Learjet, Challenger and Global Express; the Embraer Legacy; and the Dassault Falcon series.
