Jet Aviation St. Louis begins work on its first Boeing Business Jet
Jet Aviation St. Louis welcomed its first Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) in February, and its second BBJ is scheduled for this spring. Both aircraft will have maintenance and minor interior upgrades performed.
The construction of a narrow body hangar, training of technicians and investment in infrastructure resulted in the BBJ projects. Numerous St. Louis technicians have been sent to Jet Aviation's sister facility in Basel, Switzerland to gain first-hand experience working on BBJs. This cooperative work program began in early 2010 and continues today.
"Jet Aviation St. Louis has been preparing to support BBJ aircraft for a long time," notes Chuck Krugh, senior vice president and general manager, Jet Aviation St. Louis. "It’s exciting to see a BBJ at our facility and to be adding this aircraft to the list of quality airframes served here."
