Corporate Bits | Hong Kong jet announces upgraded maintenance for g550s

Hongkong Jet has announced the upgrade and expansion of its HKAR-145 maintenance capabilities to include the ability to certify the Gulfstream G550 to 144MOS/12C level.

The G550 aircraft type first entered into service in around 2003 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 G550s are now covered under the company’s Hong Kong 145 and Joint Maintenance Management approvals.

Diarmuid O’Shea, head of maintenance at 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.”
