German MRO service provider FAI Technik GmbH, a 100 % subsidiary of Germany´s special mission operator FAI rent-a-jet, has expanded its presence in Germany with the opening of a maintenance base at the all new “Willy Brandt” Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER), in the country’s capital.
At BER, FAI will offer line and base maintenance for the full line of Hawker HS125 series, Beechcraft Premier 1/1A and King Air series aircraft as well line maintenance checks up to 1C for Gulfstream models including G280, G450, G500, G550, G650 and G650ER. Additionally, an AOG-team for Learjet and Bombardier aircraft will be deployed to support FAI´s own fleet of Learjet 60, Challenger 604 and Global Express BD700 aircraft, which regularly operate in and out of BER. The new facility will complement FAI’s existing center of competence for base maintenance and modifications of Learjet and Bombardier aircraft at its headquarters at Albrecht Duerer Airport, Nuremberg.
FAI will employ over 90% of Beechcraft Berlin Aviation’s (BBA) former workforce at the new facility, following BBA’s filing for insolvency in spring 2022.
