EASA certifies FL Technics for Airbus A330 Base and Line Maintenance
FL Technics, a global provider of tailor-made aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul services, announced having successfully introduced Base and Line Maintenance services for wide-body aircraft – Airbus A330. The company expanded its EASA Part 145 certificate on 22nd of February, 2017.
The expanded EASA Part 145 approval allows FL Technics to conduct a wider range of maintenance works on Airbus A330, powered with Pratt & Whitney PW4000 and Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines. Airbus A330 base maintenance services will be provided at FL Technics’ MRO center at Kaunas International Airport, Lithuania. Previously in 2016, FL Technics introduced Continuous Airworthiness Management support for Airbus A330 operators.
“We continuously expand our geography and product range to be independent from one market or customer. The same goes for aircraft type capabilities – the narrow-body aircraft MRO segment is significantly influenced by airlines’ high and low seasons. Meantime, operational use of wide-body aircraft is more or else stable throughout the years, meaning that airlines can send these airplanes for maintenance any time,” explains Zilvinas Lapinskas, CEO of FL Technics. “I would also like to congratulate our Airbus A330 project team with successful EASA approval and thank them for all the hard work!”
Apart for the newly introduced Airbus A330, FL Technics base maintenance capabilities also include Airbus A320 Family and Boeing 737 CL/NG. Base maintenance services are provided at MRO centers in Europe (Vilnius and Kaunas airports) and Asia Pacific (Jakarta airport).
The company’s line maintenance capabilities include a broad range of narrow and wide-body Airbus, Boeing, Sukhoi, ATR, SAAB, Embraer, Fokker and MD aircraft types. FL Technics line maintenance network includes almost 30 line stations across Europe and Asia Pacific.
