Jet Aviation Basel recently re-delivered a Boeing 737-900 to the Middle East. The aircraft was inducted last year for major completions, including the first EASA-certified installation of Honeywell’s OVATION Select Cabin Management System (CMS) on a BBJ 3.
Re-delivered in early November, the scope of work for the VIP interior cabinet installation was significant, requiring the coordinated efforts of the company’s global and multi-departmental team over the completion period. Technicians from Jet Aviation St. Louis were sent to Basel to support the completions project and the company also worked in close cooperation with experts from the Honeywell OVATION Select team.
Jet Aviation Basel is the first company to install Honeywell’s OVATION Select Cabin Management System in a BBJ 3 under EASA certification.
“We’re very excited to be announcing our first Middle Eastern delivery for Ovation Select alongside Jet viation. With EASA certification now in place, Middle Eastern passengers travelling to Europe can benefit from the very best in in-flight entertainment, productivity and connectivity,” said Victor Valente, Vice President B&GA Honeywell Aerospace EMEAI.
“Availability of local resources made for quick response and improved collaboration between the engineers and technicians assigned to the project,” said Neil Boyle, vice president of completions at Jet Aviation Basel. “It was the combined efforts of all involved that paved the way for this smooth and timely delivery.”
Prior to re-delivery, Jet Aviation successfully conducted the one and only shakedown, smoke and long-range test flight to include the OVATION CMS. The highly customized aircraft, including several artworks, was redelivered to the full satisfaction of the customer.
