Monday, 18 November 2013
The ExecuJet Aviation Group manages 165 business jets worldwide. Its commercial fleet is operated under the regulatory umbrella of seven regional civil aviation issued air operating certificates (AOCs).
ExecuJet Middle East, part of the ExecuJet Aviation Group announced it will extend the company’s line maintenance capabilities to provide additional support during Dubai International Airport’s runway closures in 2014. 

ExecuJet established a line station at Dubai Al Maktoum International Airport, approved by the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) to carry out scheduled maintenance on Bombardier, Embraer and Hawker aircraft. According to the Dubai based facility, line station is expected to receive European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approval by mid-December.

Nick Weber, maintenance director/accountable manager, ExecuJet Middle East Maintenance, said: “The runway closure period at Dubai International Airport will allow us to focus on major maintenance events at our Dubai MRO facility, where aircraft may be grounded for extended periods of time. We are reviewing alternative locations for further line stations to ensure we continue to provide a high level of service to our customers in Dubai.”

ExecuJet Middle East has received Turkish SHY-145 approval, along with the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan MoTCA AMO Certificate. These approvals enable the company’s MRO to support Embraer Legacy and Bombardier CRJ 200 aircraft respectively. 

Wayne Dooley, general manager – maintenance, ExecuJet Middle East, adds: “We are delighted to have secured these approvals, which bring our total number of national aviation approvals to 18. We already provide extensive support to our customers and look forward to expanding our capabilities even further. We are now pursuing Turkish SHY-145 approval for Hawker 700, 800 and 900 aircraft.” 

ExecuJet Middle East is an authorized service facility (ASF) for Bombardier; an authorised service centre (ASC) for Embraer, Hawker, Rolls-Royce and General Electric; and an authorized dealer for Rockwell Collins and Honeywell.
