CAAP caps strong year for ExecuJet in Malaysia
The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines has approved ExecuJet Malaysia to perform maintenance work on the Falcon 2000EX and 900EX, Challenger 300s and 350s and the Gulfstream G200 and GIV.
ExecuJet is now authorised to work on a range of Philippines-registered aircraft.

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) has certified ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia to perform line and heavy maintenance on Dassault Aviation, Bombardier and Gulfstream business jets.

This certification covers Dassault Falcon 2000EX and Falcon 900EX aircraft, Bombardier Challenger 300/350 series and Bombardier Learjet 45 aircraft, and Gulfstream G200 and Gulfstream GIV aircraft.

Having CAAP certification means ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia is permitted to carry out maintenance work for operators that have these aircraft on the Philippine aircraft registry.

VP of MRO services for Asia Ivan Lim says: “The impetus for getting CAAP certification was the increased number of queries from operators in the Philippines. We realised that many of them are looking for a wider range of maintenance options, especially those who usually send their jets to the US for MRO work.”

He says the other reason it applied for CAAP certification is because the Philippines is a substantial market for business aviation. “The Philippines is the third largest market in southeast Asia for business aviation after Malaysia and Singapore.” At the moment there are around 50 business jets in the Philippines, and that number is likely to increase.

“We think our Kuala Lumpur facility brings unique value because of its geographic location, quality and range of MRO capabilities. For instance, our mobile response teams can easily support Philippine business jets with emergencies and AOG situations,” Lim concludes.
