Since February 2014, Bombardier’s Singapore service center at Seletar Airport has provided maintenance support for more than 800 customer visits. It has received 14 certifications from international authorities, five authorizations from engine and avionics OEMs, and also inaugurated an interior shop. The facility has more than doubled its engineer and technician workforce since opening.
In December 2015, the Singapore service center received additional approvals to service Learjet aircraft. The facility received the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) of Australia’s new Part 145 approval to service Australia-registered Learjet 45 and Learjet 60 jets, in addition to Challenger and Global aircraft, for which it received CASA approval in August 2015. Additionally, the center received Philippine approval to work on Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft, in addition to Learjet 30 series, Learjet 40 series and Learjet 60 series aircraft. Learjet aircraft approvals were also added to the facility’s Bermuda and Cayman Island certifications following its May 2015 FAA approval.
In 2015, the Singapore service center received six full certifications from the UAE, CASA, FAA, Qatar, India and Taiwan, adding to its full certifications from Hong Kong, Malaysia, Isle of Man, EASA, Philippines, Bermuda, Cayman Islands and Singapore. Bombardier expects the service center to receive certification from China in 2016. The facility is also a Rockwell Collins, Honeywell, Rolls-Royce and General Electric authorized service center.
The center features 32,000ft² of hangar space, 38,000ft² of dedicated ramp space and 38,000ft² of workshop, warehouse and office space. With its dedicated staff of more than 90 people, the facility is equipped to perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, modifications (including interior refurbishment and modifications), avionics installations and AOG support for Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft. The integrated Flying Colours Corp interior shop is equipped to support all Bombardier business aircraft customers with warranty, repair, line service and full refurbishment services.
