April 29, 2015 – Jet Aviation Singapore has received full FAA approval for its new Interior Shop, which will allow the company to certify refurbished interior components or entire cabin interiors of aircraft rated by the facility.
“We’re developing a reputation as a one-stop-shop with our combined maintenance inspection and refurbishment offering, including upholstery and avionics or cabin management system upgrades,” stated John Riggir, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Singapore. “Owners of business jets take great pride in the pristine condition of their aircraft, particularly in this region, and this extends to cabin interiors. We have experienced increased demand from the maturing fleet of long-range, large cabin aircraft that are based in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. We also expect to receive certification from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) later this year, which will further support our customers.”
The company has also doubled the size of its team of interior craftsmen to meet increased demand for cabin interior refurbishment services, as well as equipping the Interior Shop with a new 60 square meter eco-friendly spray-painting and buffing shop.
This is major step in an effort to further expand the company’s refurbishment capabilities. Jet Aviation Singapore is currently working on a Bombardier Challenger 605 and a Gulfstream GIV to complete a full cabinetry and veneer refurbishment and a cabin interior upgrade, respectively. In 2014, Jet Aviation Singapore performed a range of retrofit, modification and upgrade services on various aircraft, including full interior refurbishment of a GIV and retrofitting interior components on two 747 VIP aircraft. The company also collaborates with Hawker Pacific to offer a full repaint and interior package on aircraft up to the size of the Gulfstream 650 and the Bombardier Global series.
