JetCorp Technical Services begins work on 35th Challenger 300
JetCorp Technical Services Inc., the US-based operation of Canada’s Flying Colours Corp., has begun maintenance work on its 35th Challenger 300 aircraft. Maintenance work on the aircraft began in September and will include a full 96 month inspection, interior refurbishment, and new exterior paint.
Uniquely JetCorp’s MRO business stays open 24 hours seven days a week running three shifts on the maintenance, repair and overhaul activity. This has been integral in supporting the reputation it has gained for expertise in working on the Challenger 300 fleet with over 1300 workorders opened over the last 5 years on the Challenger 300 aircraft.
During this time JetCorp has completed four of the intensive 96 month inspections which entail an exhaustive and comprehensive review of the entire aircraft. These in- depth types of inspection are carried out by Jetcorp’s factory trained technicans and have helped make it one of the most respected and experienced global service providers for the Challenger 300. In conjunction with these major inspections Jetcorp has also positioned itself as a Bombardier authorized airframe and interior Warranty provider for the Challenger 300 ensuring all customer requests can be carried out at one convenient location.
In 2011 JetCorp completed a Supplemental Type Certificate to install and implement WiFi on the Challenger 300 so complementing similar STCs it holds for Wi-Fi implementations across a range of Bombardier aircraft types including the Challenger 604, Challenger 605, Challenger 300 and Learjet 60. This makes it one of the North America’s leading Wi-Fi installation facilities for business aircraft.
Troy Funk, Vice President, Jetcorp Technical Services., said: “We are delighted to reach this milestone as it reinforces our reputation as a first class maintenance, repair and overhaul facility. Backed by our team of highly qualified technicians and full spectrum maintenance facilities, we look forward to further developing this sector of our business.”
Flying Colours Corp. offers the full range of maintenance services for the entire Bombardier Challenger fleet at its Peterborough, Ontario Canada facility and JetCorp boasts full maintenance, services for all types of Bombardier Challenger aircraft as well as the entire Learjet line at its St Louis, Missouri, MRO facility. Demonstrating its continued commitment to the Challenger family it was announced at NBAA this year that Flying Colours Corp. and JetCorp have been given Authorized Service Facility status by Bombardier Aerospace across its Learjet and Challenger family.
