SINGAPORE / April 12, 2016 – Jet Aviation Singapore recently received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to support the Gulfstream G280 aircraft. The company also obtained approval from the Thai civil aviation authority to add the G280 to its certificate.
Jet Aviation Singapore recently received the two approvals in quick succession. As a Factory Authorized Service Center and Warranty Repair Facility for the Gulfstream series, the company is now prepared and able to support G280 aircraft in the region. The scope of this authorization extends up to 8C (96 Month) inspections, including all avionics, interior maintenance and upgrades within the company’s approvals.
“Our goal is provide comprehensive, quality services within geographic proximity to demand so it will not be necessary for local aircraft owners and operators to fly their aircraft long distances in order to be serviced,” said John Riggir, vice president and general manager of the MRO and FBO facility. “We are confident that this certification capability here at Jet Aviation Singapore will significantly raise the profile of the G280 aircraft in the region and we fully intend to add more country approvals as demand for support of this aircraft develops.” In August 2015, Jet Aviation Singapore received full FAA approval for its new Interior Shop. One month later, it secured maintenance approval from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to support Chinese operators of Bombardier and Gulfstream aircraft. At the inaugural Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) 2015 Gala Awards held in Hong Kong that November, Jet Aviation Singapore was named the Best Operational Support Services Company. Established at Seletar Airport as an Authorized Service Center (ASC) for Gulfstream aircraft in 1996, Jet Aviation Singapore celebrated its 20th jubilee of exceptional service delivery in February at Singapore Airshow 2016.
