Moscow-based business aviation MRO Jet Flight (JF) Service has received EASA Part 145 approval for its location at Latvia’s Riga International Airport. The approval covers maintenance on several Gulfstream types, including the G450, G550, and G650. The facility, based at FBO Riga, was certified by Latvia’s Civil Aviation Agency.
The company already supports a number of European and Russian Gulfstream aircraft operators, and with the ability now to provide both line and base maintenance at its Riga facility Jet Flight expects to be able to expand its offerings. Despite considerations posed by the global Covid-19 pandemic, the Riga location recently completed a major 8C/192-month inspection on a G450. As an authorized Embraer service center as well, it just delivered a Legacy 600 at the conclusion of a 4C/192-month inspection, which also included an interior renovation.
“We are excited to see a growing number of business aviation operators choosing JF Service for scheduled aircraft maintenance,” said Kirill Trushkovsky, the company’s director, adding the Riga station can simultaneously service up to six midsize to large business aircraft. “With the convenient geographical location of Riga and the professionalism of the JF Service team, we are aimed at attracting new partners from Europe, Russia, and other regions.”
