The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) has certified ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia to perform line and heavy maintenance on selected Dassault Falcon 2000 aircraft.
The certifying service now includes line and base maintenance to and including the maintenance of the C controls (many more extended checks) for Falcon's 2000EX, Falcon 2000EX EASy, and Falcon 2000LXS aircraft for 72 or 3,750 months, according to a statement released by ExecuJet MRO Services, the wholly-owned subsidiary of Dassault Aviation.
“The certification also covers maintenance on the landing gear and batteries for these aircraft,” it said.
The company also reported that the CAAV has accredited ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia as operating on Pratt & Whitney Canada PW300 engines, which include planned inspection, repairs, servicing, removal, and replacement of engine accessories.
“This certification means that a variety of work on Vietnam-registered Dassault Falcon 2000 aircraft and their Pratt and Whitney PW300 engines can be carried out at ExecuJet’s facility at Subang Airport,” it said.
Asia's regional vice president, ExecuJet, Ivan Lim, said that Vietnam's commercial aviation market is rapidly growing.
“There are now a small number of business aircraft based in Vietnam, which we can attribute to the country’s growing economy,” he said.
In addition to recruiting professional engineers from Europe, Lim added that ExecuJet made substantial investments in the tooling and plant training of its licensed engineers on Falcon aircraft.
