Avcom is investing $1.5 million in expanding its business aviation maintenance facilities at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport. Marketing director Artem Stepanov says the company will provide maintenance services for Hawker business jets and Embraer Legacy jets when the project is completed next year.
The company’s maintenance hangar at Domodedovo’s business aviation terminal is equipped to provide light maintenance services for Hawker 700 and 800s and Russian-manufactured Yakovlev Yak-40s and Yak-42s. When the work is completed, Avcom will offer D, E, F and G checks.
Avcom is initially targeting Russian business aviation operators, but once it gets the go-ahead from Russian authorities it will seek certification to allow it to service aircraft registered in other countries, including Germany and the UK as well as Aruba and the Cayman Islands, because of the large numbers of business aircraft registered there, Stepanov says.
Further ahead, there are plans for a second business aviation terminal aimed at international operators at Domodedovo airport, says Stepanov.
But he adds that these plans are still at an early stage.
