Jet Aviation Dusseldorf Named FAA Repair Station
Jet Aviation this week said its Dusseldorf facility was recently named an FAA certified repair station, allowing it to perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, airframe and engine repairs, avionics modifications, inspections and defect rectifications on U.S. registered aircraft. With the approval for Dusseldorf, Jet Aviation now has two FAA-certified repair stations in Germany, including Hannover. The newly certified facility offers complete maintenance, repair and overhaul, avionics, refurbishment, FBO and 24-hour AOG services. It is an authorized service center for the Cessna Citation series and the Raytheon Aircraft Beech series, including the Premier I, as well as for the Embraer Legacy ERJ 135CJ and Avanti Piaggio. Maintenance work can also be performed on the Hawker 400 XP and 800.
The facility has three hangars totaling 66,100 square feet, including various workshops, a spare-parts stock and a comprehensive technical library, and offers ample space to accommodate aircraft of all sizes on its ramp. Jet Aviation said Dusseldorf International Airport is a popular destination for U.S.-registered aircraft, and the status of a FAA repair station will open up a new market segment. "We can now support aircraft operators from the U.S. and are able to cater to their various maintenance needs. This is especially true for U.S. registered Citation and Embraer aircraft since we are an authorized service center for the Cessna Citation series and the Embraer Legacy ERJ 135CJ," said Johannes Turzer, senior vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation's facilities in Germany.
