Business Aviation Aircraft Maintenance Center
The first and only business class aircraft maintenance complex in Russia was created by Gazpromavia on the base of Ostafyevo airport in 2007. It has become a specialized center for business aircraft maintenance and repair: Gulfstream, Global Express, Embraer, Learjet, as well as all types of Dassault Falcon. The Center was organized in co-operation with the Dassault Falcon Service company.
Before the Falcon aircraft could only be repaired abroad. This fact considerably raised the expenses for their servicing. As a consequence, it restricted the use of these aircrafts by domestic airlines. Nowadays as the Maintenance Centre in Ostafyevo has started its activity, a significant spread of this aircraft type in Russia has been reached.
The Maintenance Centre was certified in accordance with EASA (European Air Safety Association) requirements, and it performs line maintenance. Falcon aircraft are also provided with periodical maintenance — semi-annual and annual scheduled maintenance.
The staff of the Maintenance Centre includes a General Manager, a Technical Director, a Quality Manager, an engineering complex, a maintenance complex, a planning group, a spare parts trade shop and a logistic group — about 30 people in total.
