Jet Aviation Singapore has received U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval to support the Gulfstream G280 jet, while Thailand’s civil aviation authority has also awarded similar clearance for the maintenance facility to add the G280 to its certificate.
As a factory-authorized service center and warranty repair facility for Gulfstream, Jet Aviation’s base at Singapore Seletar Airport is now authorized to handle G280 inspections up to the 8C (96 months). It also covers all avionics, interior maintenance and upgrades.
In August 2015, Jet Aviation Singapore (Booth P312) was granted full FAA approval for its cabin interior shop. The following month, the company received approval from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to support Bombardier and Gulfstream jets registered in China.
“Our goal is to provide comprehensive, quality services within geographic proximity to demand [for product support] so it will not be necessary for local aircraft owners and operators to fly their aircraft long distances to be serviced,” said John Riggir, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Singapore. The company, which this year marks its 20th anniversary in Singapore, intends to add approvals from other national civil aviation authorities in the Asia Pacific region.
