The Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands has certified ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia to provide light and heavy maintenance for Dassault 7X, 8X and 2000 aircraft. Vice President of ExecuJet MRO Services Asia Ivan Lim said because the Cayman Islands is one of the world’s leading civil aviation regulators and registries for business aviation aircraft, a significant number of business aviation aircraft operating in the Asia-Pacific region are Cayman Islands-registered aircraft.
“The approval we have gained means ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia is permitted to work on any Dassault 7X, 8X and 2000 aircraft on the Cayman Islands registry. Many business jet owners around the world like to have their aircraft on [the] Cayman Islands registry, because it is a regulator that is very in tune with the specific needs of business aircraft operators, and it is well recognised internationally,” Lim added.
Lim said ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia has already been able to get some additional MRO business from Dassault operators in Southeast Asia as a result of the certification from the Cayman Islands CAA.
There are also Cayman Islands-registered Dassault aircraft in Greater China, another market the Malaysian MRO company is targeting. Lim said, “Having this certification provides a further boost to our Subang facility, and reinforces Malaysia’s growing status as an international centre for MRO in the region.”
ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia is a full-service, business jet maintenance facility, an authorised service facility for Bombardier and a limited authorised warranty facility for Gulfstream.
