Metrojet completes first G650ER 4C on time and budget
‘Evolving with you in mind’ is Metrojet's company service tagline, and the team certainly managed to keep the customer in mind by performing scheduled maintenance tasks on a Gulfstream with an 11-day window.

Hong Kong-based Metrojet Limited, part of the Kadoorie Group, says that its MRO facility in Hong Kong has supported its first 4C maintenance check on a Gulfstream G650ER. By working closely with the flight crew, the Metrojet team completed all scheduled maintenance within the approved 11-day downtime and budget.

During the maintenance period, the aircraft was called out for three ad hoc flying missions and the Metrojet team provided efficient support to the client by ensuring the aircraft was flight-ready within 24 hours.

“This inspection was an amazing experience for both our team and the flight crew as we were able to complete the job while not disrupting any of the flying trips in between. Giving our clients peace of mind is always one of Metrojet's goals,” says ops manager Phil Roberts.

Established in 1995, Metrojet provides all-inclusive aircraft management, maintenance and aviation consultancy services.
