Cayman Islands CAA Awards ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia Approval For Dassault Aircraft.
ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia, an extension of ExecuJet MRO Services (which was recently acquired by Dassault Aviation in early 2019), has achieved yet another milestone as they have just been certified by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of the Cayman Island to provide light and heavy maintenance for Dassault 7X, 8X and 2000 aircraft.
According to Ivan Lim, Vice President of ExecuJet MRO Services Asia, the Cayman Islands is one of the world’s leading civil aviation regulators as well as registries for business aviation aircraft. A significant number of business aviation aircraft operating in Asia Pacific are in fact Cayman Islands registered aircraft.
The approval permits ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia to work on any Dassault 7X, 8X and 2000 aircraft on the Cayman Islands registry. The Cayman Island registry is sought after by many business jet owners around the world because it is a regulator that is very in tune with the specific needs of business aircraft operators and it is well recognised internationally. Currently, ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia has already been able to get some additional MRO business from Dassault operators in Southeast Asia because of the Cayman Islands CAA certification. There are also Cayman Islands registered Dassault aircraft in Greater China, another market the Malaysian MRO company is targeting.
“Having this certification provides a further boost to our Subang facility and reinforces Malaysia’s growing status as an international centre for MRO in the region.” says Lim.
ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia is a full-service, business jet maintenance facility. It is an Authorised Service Facility for Bombardier and a limited Authorised Warranty Facility for Gulfstream. It also represents some other major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) as Authorised Service Centre or Dealer such as: General Electric and Rolls-Royce, on multiple engine types; Honeywell engines, auxiliary power units and avionics; and Collins Aerospace on avionics.
