Jet Aviation Singapore completed the Asia-Pacific region’s first 96-month inspection on an Embraer Lineage 1000, the business aviation services unit of General Dynamics announced on Tuesday. The work also included major pylon modification and installation of a controller pilot data link communications (CPDLC) system, which both were regional firsts.
“We continuously strive to improve our capabilities by investing in new technologies and the ongoing training of our employees,” said Louis Leong, Jet Aviation's v-p of regional operations Asia and general manager of the Singapore MRO and FBO. “Our team of engineers in Singapore worked closely with Embraer to support this heavy maintenance project on behalf of our mutual customer’s operational requirements. We have a long and trusted working relationship with Embraer, which this inaugural accomplishment highlights.”
An Embraer-authorized service center since 2007, Jet Aviation’s Singapore MRO also supports a range of the Brazilian airframer’s business jets, including the Phenom 100 and 300 and Legacy 450 and 500.
