JET AVIATION RECEIVES EASA APPROVAL FOR LEARJET 60 IN VIENNA

Jet Aviation’s maintenance facility in Vienna has recently received EASA Part-145 approval for the Bombardier Learjet 60 aircraft. The company began its first 120-month inspection on a Turkish-based Learjet 60 earlier in June.

With this approval, Jet Aviation’s maintenance facility in Vienna is authorized to support the Bombardier Learjet 60 with line and base maintenance services up to and including the 120-month inspection.

“We strive to meet the business aviation service requirements of our customers when and where they need them,” says Hakan Tin, managing director of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO facility in Vienna. “As a mid-size, medium-range business jet, the Learjet 60 is a popular model in Europe and this approval provides much-needed maintenance support to aircraft owners and operators throughout the region.”

Jet Aviation Vienna was founded in September 2014 when Jet Aviation entered agreements with GATE V and FAME, the previous MRO and FBO service providers at Vienna International airport. From a newly constructed 4,000 square meter hangar facility, the company operates a Cessna Authorized Service Center that provides scheduled and unscheduled maintenance to Cessna Citation aircraft, in addition to off-site AOG services. Jet Aviation Vienna also supports line and base maintenance and AOG services for Bombardier Learjet 60 and Challenger 300/350/604/605 aircraft, as well as line maintenance for Bombardier Learjet 45; Challenger 650; Global 5000/6000, Global Express and Global Express XRS series aircraft; and the Gulfstream GV-SP series. The MRO facility has 2,000 square meters of shops and office space. FBO amenities include an operations office, a crew lounge and access to a VIP passenger lounge.
