Deer Jet is the largest business jet operator in Asia, with the company operating and managing about 40% of all business jets in China.
“One of our main challenges is providing the most effective maintenance service in the shortest possible time and at the lowest cost,” said Zhou Jinshan, vice president of maintenance, Deer Jet.
“We were looking for solutions to help better manage our maintenance budget and discovered that the Honeywell Avionics Protection Plan (HAPP) and Mechanical Protection Plan (MPP) would be able to meet Deer Jet’s operating needs in a practical manner.”
Twelve aircraft from Deer Jet’s Gulfstream fleet have been enrolled into the HAPP and nine aircraft have been signed into the MPP.
The programs help corporate jet operators to ensure that they have predictable and manageable maintenance costs, along with priority access to parts.
The MPP covers environmental control systems and cabin pressure control systems while HAPP offers full coverage for all avionics equipment and systems.
“In just two years the plans have helped Deer Jet to save nearly $1 million dollars in maintenance costs through their cost optimization solution combined with our efficient, professional project experience,” added Jinshan.
“On numerous occasions, HAPP and MPP have provided the highest priority of spare parts, helping us to offer a safe and reliable service to all of our customers.”
Deer Jet has now become an authorized dealer to sell the HAPP to other business jet operators across Asia Pacific.
