ExecuJet Haite has been certified by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to perform heavy maintenance checks on Gulfstream G650 and G650ER aircraft.
Based at Tianjin Binhai International Airport, ExecuJet Haite is now permitted to perform base maintenance checks, up to and including 72-month checks, on these aircraft registered in China.
With the G650’s large cabin and long range, the aircraft is a very popular model in China.
ExecuJet Haite was already approved by the CAAC, US FAA, the Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands, and the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority, to carry out line maintenance and AOG support on G650s.
Paul Desgrosseilliers, ExecuJet Haite general manager, said: “Performing AOGs to the satisfaction of the customer is immensely rewarding and generates enormous goodwill between the aircraft-maker, MRO company and customer.
“We perform AOGs very well because we have an attention to detail, communicate well with customers and vendors throughout the process, and have the established relationship networks within China that makes it all work in the end.”
ExecuJet Haite’s AOG support was recently tested when the company imported a spare part on the afternoon of a public holiday and was still able to clear customs within an hour.
It meant ExecuJet Haite’s engineering team could install the spare part overnight in time for the foreign-registered aircraft to depart in the morning as scheduled.
