ExecuJet Haite Aviation Services China, ExecuJet MRO Services' facility at Binhai International airport in Tianjin, has completed the first 96-month check on a Chinese-registered Embraer Legacy 650. The 96-month inspection is the most extensive on this airframe and entails over 3,000 labour man-hours. The aircraft was delivered on schedule to the customer in only eight weeks with very limited obstacles along the way mainly related to the impact of COVID-19 upon logistics.

The 96-month inspection consists of the full removal of interior down to the fuselage frames for structural inspection. Both the forward and ventral fuel tanks are also removed for thorough inspection as well as the wing leading edges, flaps, landing gear and flight controls.

“We continue to demonstrate our proficiency in performing complex heavy base maintenance projects and provide our customers with both cost effective and high-quality services unparalleled in China,” says general manager Paul Desgrosseilliers.

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. ExecuJet Haite has been a proud Embraer authorised service centre since 2012.
