Textron Aviation has expanded jet and turboprop service at its Singapore Service Center, with additional authorizations from authorities across Asia-Pacific and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
The new authorizations enable the Singapore facility to deliver full service and support to select Citation, King Air and Caravan aircraft registered in Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Papua New Guinea and the USA.
Don Alvord, president, Asia-Pacific operations at Textron, said, “Featuring nearly 1,500 aircraft in operation throughout Asia-Pacific, our Citation, King Air and Hawker products anchor the business aviation fleet throughout the region. Nothing is more critical to the successful operation of our customers’ aircraft than best-in-class service and support.
“As the OEM, our technical expertise and direct access to the factory uniquely position us to propel our customers forward and maximize their operational availability.
“As we expand our regional presence, customers are benefitting from local, factory-direct service and support. We are wholly committed to this region and, in the coming months, we anticipate additional service authorizations — which advances our dedication to delivering comprehensive service and support to this customer base.”
In addition to these most recent approvals, the Singapore facility holds authorizations for select aircraft registered in Singapore, Thailand, Canada, Australia, Malaysia and India. With approvals from 11 countries that span Textron Aviation’s product line, the Singapore Service Center has expertise to support the Citation, King Air and Caravan fleet throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
