CAAC certifies ExecuJet Haite for G650 heavy checks
ExecuJet Haite is now permitted to perform base maintenance checks, up to and including 72 month checks, on Gulfstream G650 and G650ER aircraft registered in China at its Tianjin Binhai airport base.
China is Gulfstream's largest market in Asia and the G650, being a large cabin, long-range aircraft, is a very popular model there.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has certified ExecuJet Haite to perform heavy maintenance checks on Gulfstream G650 and G650ER aircraft. The certification means ExecuJet Haite, which is based at Tianjin Binhai International airport, is now permitted to perform base maintenance checks up to and including 72 month checks on G650 and G650ER aircraft registered in China.

Having the CAAC approval for heavy maintenance checks on G650s is significant as China is Gulfstream's largest market in Asia and the G650, being a large cabin, long-range aircraft, is a very popular model in China. ExecuJet Haite was already approved by the CAAC, US FAA, the Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands and the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority to do line maintenance and AOG support on G650s.

Its AOG support was recently tested on 1 January, when the company imported a spare part on the afternoon of a public holiday and was still able to clear customs within an hour. It meant ExecuJet Haite's engineering team could install the spare part overnight in time for the foreign-registered aircraft to depart in the morning as scheduled.

"Performing AOGs to the satisfaction of the customer is immensely rewarding and generates enormous goodwill between the aircraft-maker, MRO company and customer," says general manager Paul Desgrosseilliers. "We perform AOGs very well because we have an attention to detail, communicate well with customers and vendors throughout the process and have the established relationship networks within China that make it all work in the end."

ExecuJet Haite is a Gulfstream authorised warranty facility.
