Metrojet welcomes quality assurance expert
With maintenance organisation approvals from authorities in Qatar, Philippines, US and Cayman Islands, a Philippines-based MRO has brought in an expert to ensure compliance with regulatory standards.
Newly-appointed Metrojet Engineering Clark quality assurance manager John Criss.

Metrojet, a business aviation service provider based in Hong Kong, has welcomed experienced quality assurance professional John Criss to Metrojet Engineering Clark, its MRO facility in the Philippines. Criss is tasked with ensuring that its aircraft maintenance services comply with regulatory standards.

Criss comes to Metrojet with over 40 years of aviation experience. He worked as senior management in quality and engineering at a number of FAA Part 145 repair stations in the United States after his aviation maintenance career began with the US Air Force, and later obtained the FAA A&P certificate and inspection authorisation. He was also an FAA designated airworthiness representative and an FAA designated manufacturing inspection representative involved in heavy aircraft modification projects and type certification projects. He gained several years of experience accomplishing conformity inspections on prototype and new aircraft parts prior to joining Metrojet.

“I am glad my international maintenance exposure helps leverage the existing efforts at Metrojet Clark MRO,” says the newly-appointed quality assurance manager. “Our team and I will always work to ensure the maintenance work performed complies with regulatory standards, and we strive to provide our customers with the highest quality of services, paving the way to becoming the MRO of choice in the Asia Pacific region.”

Established in 1995 and awarded an AOC in 1997, Metrojet provides comprehensive aircraft management, charter, maintenance and consultancy services, and pioneered business aviation services for 20 years in Hong Kong.
