ExecuJet Haite Aviation Services China has marked a milestone by completing the first 96-month inspection of an Embraer Legacy 650 in China. The inspection, which lasted eight weeks and encompassed 3,000 man-hours of labor, was completed on time and with limited effect from Covid-19 logistical challenges, the Embraer-authorized service center announced yesterday.
Included in the inspection was the removal of the aircraft’s interior for an examination of the super-midsize jet’s structure, as well as detachment of the forward and ventral fuel tanks, wing leading edges, flaps, landing gear, and flight controls. “We continue to demonstrate our proficiency in performing complex heavy base maintenance projects and provide our customers with both cost-effective and high-quality services unparalleled in China,” said ExecuJet Haite general manager Paul Desgrosseilliers.
A unit of Dassault Aviation, ExecuJet Haite also provides line and base maintenance support on Bombardier and Gulfstream aircraft and line support on Boeing BBJs. It holds repair station certifications from China’s CAAC, the FAA, EASA, and regulators in Cayman, Bermuda, Aruba, Hong Kong, and Macau.
