The Malaysia Department of Civil Aviation has given repair station approval to the Bombardier Aircraft Service Center in Singapore. The facility is Bombardier’s tenth factory-owned service center and, with the Amsterdam, Netherlands facility, the second outside North America.
The Singapore facility, which entered service at the end of last year, will be inaugurated during the Singapore Airshow.
It is also certified by Singapore’s Civil Aviation Authority, the EASA and the civil aviation authorities of the Philippines, Cayman Islands and Bermuda. “We have FAA certified technicians on hand to support our U.S. customers,” a Bombardier spokesman told AIN. Approvals from Hong Kong, China, India and others are in the works.
Elsewhere in the Bombardier network, Tucson received China’s CCAR Part 145 repair station authority; the Hartford facility has added a 20,000-gallon fuel farm; and the Wichita facility recently received certification to work on Saudi Arabian-registered Learjet 60XRs.
