Austria's International Jet Management (IJM) has become the first operator to have the engines and auxiliary power unit of a Bombardier Challenger 650 covered by the maintenance programs provided by Jet Support Services (JSSI). The independent maintenance provider charges a fixed hourly rate for the aircraft's two General Electric CF34-3B engines under its comprehensive Term Engine Program. For the APU, a fixed annual fee covers expenses for life-limited components and both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance events.
“We are pleased to enroll another one of our managed CF34-powered aircraft with JSSI,” said IJM managing director Robert Schmölzer. “The JSSI programs provide us with the maintenance budget stability we need, and their exceptional independent service and technical support enable us to serve our clients in the most efficient manner possible.”
JSSI provides fixed-rate maintenance programs for engines, airframes and APUs for 350 different turbine-powered aircraft models, including business and commercial jets, turboprops and helicopters. Other JSSI services include purchasing necessary aircraft parts, jet engine leasing for aircraft rental and an asset-management platform.
