Bombardier, Tianjin Airport maintenance facility progresses toward opening

Bombardier Business Aircraft and its partner Tianjin Airport Economic Area (TAEA) said their new maintenance facility in Tianjin, China, is 90 percent complete, and the facility will be operated using similar processes and procedures that govern Bombardier´s worldwide network of wholly-owned service centres, the companies said.

Bombardier Business Aircraft customers will be able to receive maintenance, repair, overhaul, and associated activities and services.

As part of Bombardier Business Aircraft´s commitment to operators in Asia, the new maintenance facility will further strengthen its customer support network in China, which includes a team of Field Service Representatives and Customer Support Account Managers, as well as four Authorized Service Facilities.

Technician training is also well underway, with 14 technicians currently receiving Bombardier´s Type Training Course for Mechanical and Avionics certification in Montréal before heading to the Tucson Service Centre for an additional three months of on-the-job training.

Paired with senior Bombardier Technicians, they will perform a series of inspections and troubleshooting exercises to perfect their skills before returning to Tianjin. In addition to aircraft training, they will also become familiar with Bombardier Service Centre processes and Quality Control Systems.

Tianjin Airport Economic Area (TAEA) is an economic development zone of Tianjin Binhai New Area (TBNA) within the jurisdiction of the Tianjin municipality.
