NetJets China obtains certificate to operate repair station
NetJets Business Aviation Limited, a joint venture among NetJets and a consortium of Chinese investors, has obtained its Part 145 Repair Station Certification from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). This approval allows NetJets China to commence operation as a repair and service station, and is separate from the Part 135 certification which allows NetJets China to begin full scale operation providing private jet services for customers in China. While working through the certification process, NetJets China has continued preparing for the start of flight operations. NetJets China has hired its principal staff, established the necessary internal structures and processes for safe flight operations, and begun forming relationships with key vendors. Additionally, the company has purchased and imported two aircraft into China to offer charter services as soon as the government grants its approval.
