KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 30 -- ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia (ExecuJet Malaysia), a full-service, business jet maintenance facility, has received approval from the Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands (CAACI) to provide light and heavy maintenance for Dassault 7X, 8X and 2000 aircraft.
In a statement today, its vice president Ivan Lim said the Cayman Islands is one of the world’s leading civil aviation regulators and registries for business aviation aircraft, where a significant number of business aviation aircraft operating in the Asia Pacific are registered.
"The approval means ExecuJet 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 well recognised internationally, " he added.
He said with the certification, the company is now also able to get some additional maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) business from Dassault operators in Southeast Asia.
According to Lim, there are also Cayman Islands registered Dassault aircraft in China, another market the Malaysian MRO company is targeting.
“Having this certification also provides a further boost to our Subang facility and reinforces Malaysia’s growing status as an international centre for MRO in the region,” he said.
