Hongkong Jet Expands HKAR-145 Maintenance Capabilities

Hongkong Jet has upgraded and expanded its HKAR-145 maintenance capabilities to include approval to certify the Gulfstream G550 to 144MOS / 12C level.

 The G550 aircraft type first entered into service in around 2003-4 and as aircraft age, the checks required to keep them flying become more in-depth and complex, under the new approval upgrade, the entire Greater China fleet of 40 G550’s are now covered under the company’s Hong Kong 145 and Joint Maintenance Management (JMM) approvals.

Diarmuid O'Shea, Head of Maintenance, Hongkong Jet said, “The biggest saving for any aircraft owner is to protect the residual value of the aircraft, so we are working to ensure we can continue to provide our world class maintenance services for the entire fleet as it ages. Engineers are in limited supply in the industry, however, at Hongkong Jet we are actively expanding our maintenance capabilities. As part of this move, initially our goal is to extend this capability increase (G550 – 12C) to the rest of our NAA authorizations - Bermuda (VP-B), Cayman (VP-C), and USA (N-) - foremost. Once that is complete, we will roll-out the process on the other aircraft types within our scope, focusing on the Gulfstream G450, G650 and the Bombardier Global Express as first priorities.”
