ExecuJet Africa Extends Cape Town Facility Maintenance
ExecuJet Aviation Group’s ExecuJet Africa is expanding its Cape Town International Airport facility’s support capability to include the Bombardier Dash 8/Q300. The MRO currently has one Dash 8/Q300 undergoing C-check base maintenance in its 64,500-sq-ft Cape Town hangar and is preparing for an influx of Dash 8/Q300s to undergo maintenance at the facility by the end of April.
ExecuJet had previously carried out C-check base maintenance on Dash 8s at its Lanseria International Airport facility.
ExecuJet Africa’s maintenance capabilities vary from minor inspections and checks to heavy maintenance checks such as C, D and cycle/hour checks, structural repairs, modifications and interior refurbishment, in addition to avionics installations and modifications. Backshops include wheels, brakes, batteries, composite repairs, paint repairs and interior, and full exterior refurbishment.
The MRO is an authorized Bombardier Aerospace, Hawker Beechcraft, Dassault Falcon and Gulfstream maintenance facility as well as a Honeywell engine service center. It is also a dealership for Honeywell, Universal, Rockwell Collins, Avidyne and Garmin. It holds South African Civil Aviation Authority and European Aviation Safety Agency Part 145 approvals.
