As part of the Luxaviation Group, Starspeed will benefit from access to the Luxaviation Group’s global portfolio of partners and clients, 25 world-class FBO facilities, 15 maintenance centres and the Group’s global fleet of more than 250 aircraft.
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.
