2020 has been a particularly trying year amid the COVID-19 pandemic resulting in a worldwide shift in how we do business. This has encouraged a significant escalation in business aviation.
ExecuJet MRO Services, based at Lanseria International Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa has adapted and provides a service while adhering to the international COVID-19 protocols and safety standards.
ExecuJet has been able to complete a Scheduled Phase inspection on a Hawker 900XP with defect rectification during the most extreme levels of lock down with minimal added downtime for one of our essential service customers.
During lockdown levels 4 and 3, our Avionics engineers installed ADS-B on a Hawker HS125-800XP, Dassault Falcon 900EX, Bombardier Challenger 604 and a Hawker HS125-900XP. This brings the total to 23 ADS-B installations since the mandate was announced.
Our production team have been working hard to complete all maintenance events expeditiously without compromise to quality. A 96-Month inspection on an Embraer Legacy 650 is almost complete. This 2000 man hour inspection completed during these trying times, where delivery of parts was more than challenging with freight companies struggling to bring shipments into the country due to restriction, has been a great success.
ExecuJet has also successfully completed maintenance and refurbishment of the cabin interior on a Dassault Falcon 900EX. This included the ADS-B Out (DO260B) compliance upgrade with WAAS capability, 12/24 months, B1/B2 and CAMP due maintenance inspections.
Our borders remain closed for now but all indications are that they will be opened to foreign business soon and we will be able to welcome our international clients once again.
We pride ourselves in providing the owner / operator with the best possible service, including the best options and / or solutions in the shortest possible time. We consider our clients to be our partners and concentrate our efforts in supporting them in such a way while maintaining and strengthening our relationships.
