A new company FL Technics JETS established by Avia Solutions Group will provide private aircraft maintenance and repair services.
Initially, the newly established FL Technics JETS will serve aircraft in the Raytheon BAe-125/ Hawker 800/800XP/850XP family. In the future company plans to provide services for Bombardier Challenger 600 family aircraft, Embraer Legacy 450/500/600 and other popular models of private planes. A total of 4 million U.S. dollars will be invested in the company in 2011-2015.
The new company will take over professional knowledge and skills of more than 20 years of experience with FL Technics company and will operate on the FL Technics technical base. FL Technics hangar will be equipped with two special berths for private jet service. It is planned to build a separate hangar in 2013-2015.
FL Technics JETS professionals will provide private jet maintenance and repair services, as well as aircraft cabin maintenance and repair services.
Darius Saluga, head of FL Technics JETS company, says that the move to the private jet service market was led by market demand. Despite the economic downturn, the number of private jets in the region is growing: in Russia alone there is about 300 of such aircraft and in 2025 this figure is expected to increase to 550-590.
”We have noted the lack of private aircraft maintenance and repair sites in the region. The majority of jets are currently served in Germany, Switzerland, and Great Britain. Therefore, we decided to offer a good price/quality ratio to the markets located within a radius of 1,500 km from our facility. The repair centre in Lithuania will help to reduce the distance required to travel to such centre and experience of our professionals, their work at FL Technics base will ensure that the work will be done professionally”, said FL Technics JETS director Darius Šalūga.
FL Technics JETS is the fifth company owned by Avia Solutions Group. Avia Solutions Group also owns FL Technics, Baltic Aviation Academy, Baltic Ground Services and Small Planet Airines.
