Singapore based MRO provider Jet Aviation Singapore has completed the delivery of the first 8C (120-month) inspection undertaken in Asia on a Bombardier Global Express. A full interior refurbishment and exterior repaint was also performed alongside the heavy inspection, the company said. Jet Aviation obtained full FAA approval for its new interior shop, earlier this year. It also received maintenance approval to support Chinese Bombardier and Gulfstream aircraft operators from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) in September.
“This has been a milestone project for Jet Aviation Singapore, demonstrating our high standards of workmanship and expertise,” said John Riggir, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Singapore. “We built our new hangar at Seletar Aerospace Park precisely for projects of this scope and scale. This particular project was delivered on time and budget to a very satisfied customer, and I am pleased to add that we will commence our second 8C inspection for an undisclosed client in January 2016.”
The 10-year 8C inspection for Bombardier’s Global Express aircraft, requires a thorough check of the airframe and structures requiring extensive dismantling of the cabin. Taking advantage of the disassembled aircraft, Jet Aviation simultaneously completed a full interior refurbishment and performed the first full exterior strip and repaint on this type of aircraft in the region.
