Jet Aviation, a subsidiary of American aerospace and defense multinational General Dynamics, announced that it has completed the integration of Hawker Pacific operations at Seletar Airport in Singapore.
Hawker Pacific was an integrated aviation solutions provider with more than thirty years’ experience serving corporate, government and private customers across the Asia Pacific and the Middle East. Jet Aviation and Hawker Pacific were both operating MRO (Maintenance, Repair, Overhaul) and FBO (Fixed-base operator) facilities in Singapore, with physically adjacent locations. Jet Aviation acquired Hawker Pacific in May 2018. .
The combined MRO and FBO facility in Singapore now operates under the Jet Aviation logo. As a single unified company, Jet Aviation’s expanded Singapore operation gains Authorized Service Center status for Embraer and Dassault aircraft, increases its available hangar space to nearly 20,000 square meters, and more than doubles its headcount, now at 299 employees. It also significantly broadens the range of OEMs and aircraft types it supports, while increasing its national aviation approvals to 19.
Following the acquisition of Hawker Pacific by Jet Aviation in 2018, the company formed a new region in Asia-Pacific (APAC). The new APAC region has more than 20 locations, including a regional MRO hub in Singapore, regional headquarters in Sydney, and some 1,100 employees.
