Jet Aviation expands maintenance capabilities in Houston
Jet Aviation recently expanded its maintenance capability at its newly acquired FBO at Houston’s Hobby Airport. In addition, Jet Aviation expanded its ramp at the FBO in Dallas at Love Field by 48,000 ft², bringing the total facility size to more than 250,000 ft². The company hired technicians with large-cabin experience, added tooling and purchased equipment to support Gulfstream, Bombardier and Falcon aircraft operators. In addition to providing line support including AOG and due items, Houston is expanding into small to medium inspections for base and transient clients. Maintenance is performed in a 30,000 ft² dedicated hangar, and seven A&P technicians – with a combined total of 176 years of experience – are on staff.
