StandardAero achieves EASA AMO certification for South African PT6A engine MRO facility

Posted 19 March 2018 · Add Comment

Vector Aerospace Africa, a StandardAero company located in Lanseria, Johannesburg, South Africa, has secured European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) aircraft maintenance organization (AMO) certification for its engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility.

Opened in 2010 and located at Lanseria International Airport, the shop is a Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PT6A Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) with distributorship rights.

The newly awarded AMO certification from EASA adds to a long list of existing approvals for the Lanseria facility, which already holds authorizations from the South Africa Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and Transport Canada (TCCA).  The facility also holds local AMO approvals from the civil aviation authorities of Angola, Botswana, Kenya, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Jason Gallant, General Manager of Vector Aerospace Africa said:  “We are pleased to add the convenience and assurance of EASA AMO certification for existing and prospective PT6A customers.   This additional approval will simplify maintenance approvals for those customers operating under EASA certification, especially those outside of South Africa.  As the sole independent Designated Overhaul Facility for the P&WC PT6A-140 engine worldwide, we have received significant interest from operators of the Cessna Grand Caravan EX and upgraded Caravans wanting us to support their powerplants, and the receipt of EASA AMO approval
