Jet Aviation announced that its maintenance facility in Singapore has been awarded Aerospace Standards (AS/EN) EN 9110 certification in recognition of its quality management system. AS/EN certifications are based on ISO 9001 quality standards adapted for the aviation, space and defence (ASD) industry. Following Basel’s certification in January 2018, this is the company’s second MRO site to achieve this internationally recognised industry standard.
Developed by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG), AS/EN 9110 certification is the quality standard for repair stations, including criteria critical to the maintenance of commercial, private, and military aircraft. The only organisations eligible for this certification are those whose primary business focus is in supporting MRO (maintenance, repair, and overhaul) and CAMO (continuing airworthiness management organization) services for civil and military aviation products of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM).
“This certification is a significant testament to our ongoing commitment to the highest industry standards and best practices,” said Louis Leong, Jet Aviation’s vice president for Southeast Asia and general manager of Singapore. “As part of the certification process, we participated in a series of demanding, independent audits by Bureau Veritas to establish our focus on continuous improvement and service excellence — from our documentation processes that improve output consistencies and our quality monitoring procedures for early defect detection and rectification, to the regular review of practices to identify obsolete or inefficient processes and our general rigor regarding proper documentation and maintenance procedures. AS/EN 9110 certification is a great achievement for Singapore, and a great credit to our team.”
Located at Singapore’s Seletar Airport, Jet Aviation’s maintenance facility is a Factory Authorised Service Center and Warranty Repair Facility for a wide range of aircraft types and models, including Gulfstream, Embraer, Daher-Socata and Boeing Business Jets. It is also the designated Maintenance Response Team for Pratt & Whitney Canada 307 and 308 series engines and the Rolls-Royce AE3007 series engine for the Asia Pacific region.
