Gama Aviation gains EASA approval for maintenance facility

Gama Aviation has announced its European Ground business has secured the required EASA approvals for its new Bournemouth maintenance facility while it transitions from its existing Farnborough & Oxford sites.

Under the agreement the new Bournemouth facility is now approved for maintenance of the following types: King Air, Premier Bombardier Challenger 600, Bombardier Challenger 850, Bombardier Global, Hawker, Cessna Citation 560 XL, and the Embraer Legacy.

Scott McVicar, Managing Director, Europe Ground: “With the EASA approval now in place we shall seek to add FAA, Cayman, Bermudan, Guernsey and the Isle of Man to the site’s approval list.

With the transition approval coming slightly earlier than expected, the good retention of our current team and significant interest from local engineers and support staff, I believe we are ahead of plan and can now start to book business into our new home.”
