This approval attests our ability to do just that.”
Neil Boyle, senior vice president and general manager of the Jet Aviation Basel Completions Center, adds, “We have allocated considerable time and resources the past few years to advancing our capabilities with the new aviation technologies of the Boeing 787. I am very pleased to have our skills and competencies recognized by the regulatory authorities as we prepare to complete our first VVIP Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner."
