Metrojet’s MRO operation has increased its Gulfstream G650/650ER capabilities to include an 8C check following approvals from the FAA, Bermuda BCAA, Cayman Island CAACI, Isle of Man IoMAR, Qatar QCAA, and San Marino SMAR. Done every 10 years, the 8C check includes removal of the cabin interior for structural inspection, as well as landing gear overhaul and hydraulic and electrical systems inspections.
In addition, the Hong Kong-based business aviation services provider has received approval from the Vietnam CAAV for G450 8C checks, as well as B3 inspections for the Boeing BBJ737-700.
“Metrojet is dedicated to elevating our capacity continuously, to provide safe, international quality and cost-competitive options for customers to choose from,” said Metrojet MRO Hong Kong general manager Dave Yip. “The newly added Vietnam CAAV maintenance approval also assists Metrojet to support the growth of VN-registered business jets in the region.”
