The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has authorised Jet Aviation to support inspections of Dassault Falcon 7X/8X and Falcon 900 series aircraft at its MRO facility in Hong Kong.
Serving as a fully authorised Dassault Falcon Line Service Center, the recent FAA approval enables Jet aviation to support 48- and 36-month inspections on N-registered Dassault Falcon 7X/8X and Falcon 900 series aircraft, respectively.
The company’s aircraft management and charter operation in Hong Kong currently oversee 29 aircraft, which includes a Dassault Falcon 7x.
John Riggir, GM of Jet Aviation's MRO and FBO facility in Singapore and VP of the company's operations in Asia, said: “Jet Aviation has a long-standing relationship with Dassault Falcon and we are very pleased to extend our support to Falcon owners and operators of N-registered aircraft flying in the region.”
“There has been an increase in demand for local, more accessible services and these approvals improve our ability to meet the needs of the Dassault Falcon customer base in Asia.”
From its facility in Hong Kong, which includes a 9,200 square meter (99,027 square feet) hangar, Jet Aviation is able to offer its clients line maintenance, inspections and defect rectifications, as well as AOG support.
Additionally, Jet Aviation holds a number key approvals for the local market including Hong Kong CAD maintenance repair station approval, an FAA repair station certificate #6JAY388B, as well as mainland China JMM approval for PRC-registered aircraft.
