Bangkok-based Western-MJets has received U.S. FAA certification as a Part 145 repair station. Western-MJets is wholly owned by MJets, an FBO based on Bangkok Don Mueang International Airport. FAA certification allows Western-MJets to conduct maintenance on U.S.-registered business jets in accordance with FAA Part 145 regulations. The MRO is approved to work on most Gulfstreams; Cessna Citations; Airbus and Boeing bizliners; Bombardier business jets; Dassault Falcons; Embraer Executive Jets; and Hawkers.

MJets claims to operate the only full-service FBO and private jet terminal in Thailand. It offers charter, management, consultancy, maintenance and AOG services, air ambulance, ground handling services and FBO facilities with VIP lounge and on-site customs and immigration services.

In the last 12 months, MJets passed several major milestones, including both IS-BAO and IS-BAH accreditations and EASA TCO certification for its Thai air operator certificate. Western-MJets is eyeing China, Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Hong Kong, India, Isle of Man and the UAE for possible new locations, it said.
