Jet Aviation Singapore has completed its first 8C (120-month) inspection on a Bombardier Global Express. In parallel with the heavy inspection, the company completed a full interior refurbishment and exterior repaint.
The 10-year 8C inspection is the largest maintenance event for Bombardier’s Global Express aircraft, requiring extensive dismantling of the cabin for a thorough check of the airframe and structures. To take advantage of the disassembled aircraft, Jet Aviation Singapore simultaneously undertook a full interior refurbishment, including of the veneer, headliner, sidewalls and galley.
“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.”
Jet Aviation Singapore received FAA approval for its new interior shop earlier in 2015. In September 2015, it secured maintenance approval from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to support Chinese operators of Bombardier and Gulfstream aircraft. The company’s 7,500m² hangar can accommodate up to eight Gulfstream G650s, eight Bombardier Global Express 7000 aircraft or three BBJ or ACJ types.
