of presidential plane
Maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) firm PT GMF AeroAsia, a subsidiary of flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, will handle the maintenance of the recently arrived presidential aircraft Boeing Business Jet 2 (BBJ-2).
"We are ready to take care of the presidential aircraft. This is a historical milestone for GMF as the biggest MRO firm in Indonesia," president director Richard Budihadianto said on Monday as quoted by Antara news agency. He said the firm would conduct maintenance up to C-check, or heavy maintenance.
In addition, it would provide spare parts, maintenance components, engineering, cabin maintenance, training and repainting and logo design if necessary.
GMF was previously in charge of the maintenance and repair of the Yemeni presidential plane, a Boeing B747 Special Performance (SP), in 2009.
The plane underwent C-checks and interior modification at GMF facilities in Cengkareng, Banten, west of Jakarta. The company also trained five technicians for the Yemeni presidential plane in Jakarta.
"Apart from [our existing] capability, we have the experience to handle the maintenance of presidential aircraft," he added.
The firm has obtained approval certificates from the Transportation Ministry, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). (nfo)
I apologize in advance for returning to the old topic, but I have to clarify one thing. These photos are not pictures of the interior of the Indonesian Presidential Aircraft, but they come from the presentation of the first Boeing BBJ during the Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition in Shanghai.
