Approval for Jet Aviation Basel’s Honeywell APU overhaul facility


Jet Aviation Basel has received approval from EASA to operate its new Honeywell auxiliary power unit (APU) overhaul facility for the GTCP36 series. Jet Aviation Basel was appointed by Honeywell to establish an APU overhaul facility in 2015.

Honeywell Aerospace APUs are currently used in thousands of aircraft to start main engines and provide bleed air and electrical power capacity. APU overhaul maintenance requires total disassembly, inspection, repair, reassembly and functional testing, including individual as well as group balancing of compressors and turbines. It may also include the modification of the new-generation compressor carbon seal and related components where applicable.
