ExecuJet expands maintenance services at Cape Town facility
ExecuJet Aviation Group is expanding heavy maintenance support at the company’s Cape Town International Airport MRO facility to include Bombardier Dash 8 Q100, Q400 as well as the CRJ100 and CRJ200 aircraft. ExecuJet has also received South Africa Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) approval to maintain these aircraft.
Graeme Duckworth, President MRO Services says: “The market share for Bombardier’s regional fleet is increasing and there is a growing need to provide operators with a facility capable of performing heavy maintenance on these aircraft types. We can now provide extended support as an independent third-party AMO/MRO facility. Our goal is to allow regional airlines to concentrate on their line operations, while we focus on deep-level maintenance matters, such as C-checks.”
ExecuJet’s maintenance capabilities at the company’s Cape Town MRO vary from minor inspections and checks to heavy maintenance checks such as C, D, and cycle/hour checks, structural repairs, modifications and interior refurbishment, as well as avionics installations and modifications. The facility was already approved to carry out maintenance on Bombardier Dash 8 Q300 aircraft.
