ST. LOUIS, 28 Oct. 2012.Business aviation specialist Jet Aviation St. Louis will induct its first Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) this April for scheduled maintenance and interior upgrades, company officials will announce this week at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) show in Orlando.
The Jet Aviation project includes the first installation of the Boeing enhanced vision system service bulletins for a general aviation aircraft in private use, company officials say.
Jet Aviation St. Louis has prepared to accommodate narrowbody aircraft, including expanding its facility and sending technicians to Boeing for training.
The BBJ 700 will undergo its 12-year inspection and gear overhaul. Additionally, some interior surfaces of the aircraft will be refinished and some headliner panels will be recovered.
An enhanced vision system will be installed in compliance with a series of Boeing service bulletins. This is the first time the bulletins have been applied to an aircraft in private service, Jet Aviation officials say.
