The Gulfstream Beijing Service Center recently received authorization to service Gulfstream aircraft registered in Hong Kong and Macau. The approval was granted through a joint maintenance management (JMM) agreement among the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), the Civil Aviation Department of Hong Kong and the Civil Aviation Authority of Macau SAR.
Under the agreement, Gulfstream Beijing can perform maintenance and upgrades on airframes, avionics, powerplants and interiors on Gulfstream G550s, G450s and G200s registered in Hong Kong and Macau. Gulfstream Beijing earned CAAC approval last year to work on those models registered in China.
“The JMM approval is welcome news for many of our Hong Kong and Macau operators who travel frequently to Beijing and nearby cities,” said Mark Burns, president of Gulfstream Product Support. “As Gulfstream Beijing grows, our goal is to add authorizations to give our customers more options for maintenance.”
According to the company there are more than 200 Gulfstream aircraft based in the Asia-Pacific region, including more than 45 in Hong Kong and Macau.
