ExecuJet MRO Services Opens Maintenance Facility in Brisbane
ExecuJet MRO Services, a Dassault Aviation company, has opened a line maintenance facility in Brisbane, Australia.
The new maintenance facility at Queensland’s Brisbane Airport is ExecuJet MRO Services’ fourth maintenance facility in Australia after Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
Vice President MRO Services Australasia at ExecuJet MRO Services, Grant Ingall, says: “We are opening the new station in Brisbane to increase our reach in the northeast of Australia and broaden our line maintenance capabilities. For instance, Brisbane will allow us to meet demand for mobile repair party (MRP) and aircraft-on-ground (AOG) support.”
“We have already begun dispatching a rapid response team to places in Queensland where operators need support, such as Cairns and the Gold Coast. The Brisbane station has definitely helped us respond faster,” he adds.
He also says: “The decision to establish a maintenance facility at Brisbane Airport, doing line maintenance, was in response to market demand.”
“We are already supporting a Falcon 7X operator, based in Brisbane, with line maintenance,” he says.
ExecuJet MRO Services Australia recently added 7X maintenance capability to its Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) certification in Australia, which means all of the MRO company’s maintenance facilities in Australia are certified to do line maintenance on this aircraft type.
As for heavy maintenance checks on 7X aircraft, Ingall says this work will be done at its facility at Sydney Airport.
Ingall says: “The Falcon 7X is the first aircraft type we are supporting in Brisbane. We have invested in tooling and are looking to also support in Brisbane other business jet models and manufacturers in the near future.”
Dassault Aviation acquired ExecuJet MRO Services in January and since then the MRO company has been expanding its MRO capability on Dassault aircraft types.
ExecuJet MRO Services Australia is also a Bombardier Authorized Service Facility, Embraer Authorised Service Centre and Gulfstream Authorised Warranty Facility.
The business also holds General Electric Authorised Service Centre, Rolls Royce Authorised Service Centre for BR725, BR710 Series, Honeywell Avionics and Mechanical Authorised Service Centre and a Collins Aerospace Dealership.
