20 years ago, Jet Aviation established its regional aircraft management and charter business in Hong Kong. Then all it had was an AOC, a single aircraft and a few employees. Today, the wholly-owned subsidiary of General Dynamics has a 40-member strong regional aircraft management and charter team. The team manages a fleet of 35 aircraft. Jet Aviation has 80 flight crews in 10 countries across Asia Pacific.
Over the years, Jet Aviation expanded its line maintenance capabilities over the years in Hong Kong. This facility holds Hong Kong civil aviation department approval maintenance repair station approval, an FAA repair station certificate #6JAY388B, and a mainland China JMM approval for PRC-registered aircraft. Its sister facility in Singapore which was established in 1992 has another 12 other country approvals.
Jet Aviation has some 4,000 employees in 50 locations worldwide. Its services include aircraft management, aircraft sales, charter, completions, defense, FBO, maintenance and staffing.
“We are so proud and grateful to celebrate twenty years of hard work, successful relationship-building and trusted partnership with our dedicated employees and loyal customers in Hong Kong. In September 2001, against all odds, we applied for and received an AOC to support the needs of a local business jet owner in Hong Kong. Twenty years later, it gives us great pleasure to continue enhancing our service offerings to make aircraft ownership simple for our business jet customers. From technical expertise, regulatory knowledge, and maintenance support, to flight planning and staffing, we offer a comprehensive range of customized programs —with safety at the heart of everything we do.”Carlos Gomez, Senior Director of Aircraft Management for APAC, Jet Aviation
