L to r: Joerg Bortoluzzi, senior manager of procurement and direct sales maintenance at Jet Aviation Basel; Stefan Benz, Jet Aviation v-p of MRO and FBO operations, EMEA & Asia; Rob Smith, president of Jet Aviation Group; Johannes Turzer, v-p and general manager of maintenance at Jet Aviation Basel; Andrew Robinson, Rolls-Royce senior v-p of services and customer support for civil small and medium engines; Carolyn Brand, Tay project executive at Rolls-Royce; and Jérn Lindstàdt, Rolls-Royce v-p of on-wing operations for civil small and medium engines, mark the induction of several Jet Aviation facilities to the Rolls-Royce network of service centers.

Building on an existing relationship, Jet Aviation’s facilities in Basel, Geneva, Moscow, Dubai and Singapore have been selected by Rolls-Royce to join its EMEA and Asia authorized service center network. The appointments extend service capabilities for the BR710, BR725 and Tay and allow those Jet Aviation facilities to provide line maintenance and warranty support. The facilities will also receive support from Rolls-Royce, including on-site training, specific engine training, technical support and publications.

Rolls-Royce appointed Jet Aviation St Louis an authorized service center for the BR710 in May 2012.

The BR710 powers the GV, GV-SP, G500 and G550 and Global Express and Global 5000. Tays power the G350 and G450 and Fokker regional aircraft, and BR725s power the G650.
