Metrojet's Philippines MRO Gets Renewal Nod from FAA

Metrojet Engineering Clark (MEC), Hong Kong-based Metrojet’s MRO in the Philippines, has recently renewed its FAA Part 145 approval to perform line and base maintenance on the Gulfstream G450, G550, and G650/G650ER, as well as the Bombardier Challenger 300/350 and 604/605; and Bombardier Global Express, 5000, 6000, and 7500. The FAA nod also includes the servicing and overhaul of aircraft batteries and wheel assemblies in MEC’s dedicated workshops.

“Since the opening of the Metrojet Engineering Clark hangar facility in April 2021, we have seen multiple maintenance requests coming from the Philippines for U.S.-registered aircraft. The renewal of the FAA certification once again affirms MEC’s efforts in servicing N-numbered aircraft in the region,” said MEC general manager Sarith Vaikuntan.

This renewal is in addition to MEC’s existing, but similar, approvals from the Philippines CAAP, Cayman Islands CAA, Qatar QCAA, Isle of Man IoM, and San Marino SMAR. Based at Clark International Airport (RPLC), MEC has a 76,424-sq-ft hangar that can simultaneously accommodate up to 10 ultra-long-range business jets and nearly 120,000 sq ft of ramp space for maintenance activities. Its facilities also meet Philippine typhoon and seismic building codes.
