The South African Air Force has awarded ExecuJet South Africa Maintenance the contract for product support services for its fleet of Dassault Falcon aircraft.
ExecuJet had been providing the South African Air Force (SAAF) VIP Squadron with maintenance support for their fleet of aircraft for the past 13 years. “ExecuJet built a good relationship with the SAAF and ARMSCOR (Armaments Corporation of South Africa Ltd) and we have developed a very keen understanding of the constraints, processes and procedures that drive the day to day business in support of the SAAF.” says Steve Bothma, Maintenance Director of ExecuJet South Africa.
ExecuJet was the approved maintenance service provider for the SAAF Falcon fleet for 13 years until August 2010. During this period ExecuJet made substantial investment in personnel and equipment to ensure continuity of the high level of service demanded by the SAAF, while also exploiting opportunities to reduce the cost of ownership of the Falcon fleet. ExecuJet has now regained the contract for a period of five years. ExecuJet will now support all of the SAAF VIP Squadron.
“ExecuJet is proud and honoured to have been selected as the preferred supplier and awarded this opportunity. We look forward to supporting the VIP fleet once more and further strengthening our relationship with the SAAF and Armscor,” says Mr Stephen Paddy, Sales and Marketing Director for ExecuJet South Africa.
ExecuJet will be supporting the SAAF at the Waterkloof Airshow on Saturday, October 1, 2011. Visit us at the Civil Aviation Static Park.
