ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia has received certification from the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) to perform line and heavy maintenance on certain Dassault Falcon 2000s registered in the Southeast Asian country. Under the certification, line and base maintenance up to and including C checks (72 months or 3,750 flight cycles) is covered on the Falcon 2000EX, 2000EX EASy, and 2000XLS. Maintenance of batteries and landing gear are also covered.
Further, the Dassault Aviation-owned maintenance provider has received CAAV certification for work on Pratt & Whitney PW300-series engines. That includes scheduled inspection, repairs, non-routine maintenance, and removal and replacement of engine accessories.
“The team at ExecuJet MRO Services is demonstrating initiative and capability, in expanding their offerings for the Dassault Falcon fleet,” said Jean Kayanakis, Dassault senior v-p of worldwide Falcon customer service and service center network. “These developments allow us to continuously improve the Falcon customer experience in the region.”
According to ExecuJet MRO Services regional v-p of Asia Ivan Lim, a small number of business aircraft is based in Vietnam, which is rapidly growing as a market for business aviation with average GDP growth of between 5 and 7 percent annually. Additionally, ExecuJet Malaysia’s facility at Subang Airport in Kuala Lumpur is in proximity to Vietnam, he noted.
