Gama Aviation Asia delivers first Gulfstream G650/650ER engineering course in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong, 27th February 2018 – Gama Aviation Plc, the global business aviation services company, is pleased to announce the completion of the first of its theory and practical training courses run in-conjunction with Global Jet Services and China Aircraft Services Limited (“CASL”) for the Gulfstream G650/G650ER.

Eleven engineers from four local MRO’s attended the course for seven weeks receiving B1 / B2 training with formal approvals from Hong Kong CAD, EASA, GCAA and the FAA.

J D McHenry, President, CEO, Global Jet Services, Inc. commented: “This most recent class was an excellent example of how the continued partnership of Gama Aviation Asia and GJS will successfully support a global business aviation maintenance market. The class concluded with awarding a large group of students from multiple geographic regions with their respective certificates required by Hong Kong CAD, EASA, GCAA or FAA. They were all served at this central site provided by Gama Aviation. The combined talents, expertise, and flexibility demonstrated by this alignment of quality training providers are proof of a highly effective maintenance training solution, available to a diverse audience with specific requirements.”

Sergio Oliveira e Silva, General Manager, Asia commented: “This G650/650ER engineering course is the first of its kind in Hong Kong that combines the skills of our team, CASL’s comprehensive business jet maintenance approvals and the talents of Global Jet Service’s instructors. Running this very well attended course in Hong Kong saved local companies thousands of dollars in travel and accommodation costs, removed the inconvenience of having valuable resources in different time zones and allowed the engineers to return home to their families at the end of the day. Based on the success of this G650/650ER engineering course we will be running further Gulfstream and Bombardier courses in 2018.”
