Private Aircraft Maintenance Team: 40,000+ Hours Accident-Free

The Sun Air Jets private aircraft maintenance team has reached a new milestone in 2020. The department worked over 12,000 hours without incident last year, which brings the team to a total of over 40,000 hours accident-free.

As the most credentialed and highest rated safety operator in the country, this new achievement demonstrates our dedication to risk-averse safety and operational processes that permeates our company culture throughout each of our departments.

“We’re very proud of our hardworking team for this impressive accomplishment. With our exemplary flight operations safety management standards, our team has been dedicated to creating an environment that prioritizes safety for our employees and guests,” says Rob Cox, Executive Vice President and Director of Maintenance at Sun Air Jets.

Sun Air Jets’ maintenance technicians are all trained by either aircraft manufacturers, or through Flight Safety International. In addition, our technicians receive additional training at least semi-annually when practicable, as well as participating in Sun Air Jets’ internal recurring safety training.

Congratulations to our private aircraft maintenance team on this achievement!

Sun Air Jets Completes 144-Month Inspection on Gulfstream G550 (G500)

Sun Air Jets recently completed a large-scale maintenance inspection on a client’s Gulfstream G550 (G500). The project included 12/24/36/48/72 and 144-month inspections, which involves disassembling portions of the aircraft including the landing gear, fuselage, interior and tail section, a detailed inspection of all applicable parts and structure, operational checks, and then reassembling the aircraft for return to service.

As the industry faces a decreased demand for private jet charter flights due to the coronavirus outbreak, the maintenance department seized the opportunity to perform this intensive maintenance event. Completion of this significant project is a testament to Sun Air Jets’ world-class maintenance capabilities, flexibility and in-house experience.

The team is also in the midst of performing similar maintenance projects on other aircraft during this downtime to ensure clients’ assets are properly maintained, up-to-date on aircraft inspections and ready to fly when requested.

“Aircraft owners are looking at their schedules for the rest of the year and are choosing to utilize the current slowdown to conduct large scale maintenance events, helping free up the plane for the rest of the year. We schedule all other minor maintenance events around the owners’ normal schedule, minimizing the required downtime for scheduled maintenance” said Rob Cox, EVP of Maintenance for Sun Air Jets.

Sun Air Jets’ aircraft owners receive exclusive access to the maintenance department, which includes trained Gulfstream technicians. As a Part 145 repair station, the department is also fully integrated with their safety management system, having achieved all four major industry safety standards, and provides unmatched rates to aircraft owners.
