PhilJets successfully obtained an aircraft maintenance organization license in early July, allowing the company to service aircraft directly in-house and provide a complete range of services an aviation firm can offer.
It’s the first year that PhilJets obtained the AMO certificate. The official license, issued and certified by the Civil Aviation Authorities of the Philippines, authorizes the company to engage and perform maintenance work and modification on commercially or privately operated aircrafts.
“This new license represents another step forward for PhilJets in its goal to develop a nose-to-tail approach to Aviation services in the Philippines and for all its customers,” said PhilJets managing director Thierry Tea.
In parallel of this certification, PhilJets also renewed this year its aircraft material distributor certificate. The company wants to further expand its spare parts activities around Asia and especially in the Asean region, by importing aircraft spare parts and consumables, and thus service the Asian market needs for replacement components, both for commercial aviation and business aviation clients.
PhilJets said by strengthening aircraft management services as its core business, it takes part in all stages of the business aviation cycle, throughout the life of an aircraft from consulting, sales and importation, to operations, maintenance, spare parts procurement and servicing.
The company can now provide expert aircraft maintenance and repairs, efficient services, spare parts sales for aircrafts to its customers and other aviation industry’ actors.
The company said it illustrates the wish for PhilJets to better understand, help and accompany its customers, both current partners and future prospects.
It said by providing an independent yet professional range of services, PhilJets favors long-term relationships and a commitment to both excellence and better customer service.
The acquisition of aircraft AMO license and the AMDC renewal of PhilJets Group are a pledge to better support its customers, and a first step for the company towards building its own MRO workshop, the company said.
Concurrently to this, PhilJets Group is also welcoming a new Robinson R44 helicopter that will complement its two H130 (formerly EC130T2) and one AS350B2 helicopters.
“This new aircraft provides an excellent reliability, responsive handling, and flexibility, making it, an ideal light helicopter for private, business, and tourism applications,” said PhileJets Group business development manager Michiko Soriano.
The R44 will strengthen PhilJets’ existing fleet and help the company to develop itself into a fully-grown charter operator.
With, now, a fleet of four helicopters and one fixed wing jet, PhilJets signals its willingness to be a reference in terms of fleet management and charter company in the Philippines.
