ExecuJet Haite Aviation Services China, based in Tianjin and part of the ExecuJet MRO Services network, has completed China's largest business jet inspection and first 96-month check on an Embraer Lineage 1000. The aircraft was delivered in eight weeks to meet its delivery schedule, which included defect rectification work and service bulletins.
Asian Sky Group, a business aviation consulting firm acting as the owner's representative overseeing and managing the delivery process, says: “We were very impressed by ExecuJet Haite's agility, efficiency and ability to adjust to a very demanding timeline under the complicated restrictions of the current times. The project was completed ahead of the estimated time, which enabled the client to conduct additional value-added activities before taking delivery, all supported and conducted by ExecuJet Haite's professional and dedicated team. The standard of work, level of commitment, reports and responsiveness of Paul and his team made a tremendous difference and gave the client the confidence they needed throughout the process. We commend and thank them for their execution of this significant project and congratulate them for the achievement.”
The M8 inspection, conducted at 96 months, 4,800 hours or 2,400 cycle, is the largest for the Lineage, encompassing more than 4,600 hours of maintenance and requiring specialised tooling, equipment and specific knowledge of the airframe and interior. Key elements include the removal and inspection of thirteen auxiliary fuel tanks, a full cabin interior removal and reinstallation, removal of the rudder and elevators, as well as the pulling of hundreds of panels for structural inspections.
Paul Desgrosseilliers, general manager, adds: “This achievement demonstrates our outstanding capability to complete complex maintenance projects with an unwavering commitment by our team to the highest standards in quality, service and safety.”
ExecuJet Haite holds CAAC, EASA, FAA, Cayman, Bermuda, Aruba, Hong Kong and Macau approvals and offers line and base maintenance support on multiple Embraer Executive Jets, Dassault, Bombardier and Gulfstream models, as well as line support for the Boeing business jet. It has been an Embraer authorised service centre since 2012 and will continue to make further investments in equipment and training to enhance its already strong support of the Embraer fleet.
