Posted 23 April 2019 · Add Comment

FAI Technik, the maintenance division of Germany’s FAI Aviation Group, has now received FAA approval for its EASA Part 145 licence. This follows similar approvals from the Nigerian authorities in October 2018.

 

With the certificate in place, the company is fully authorised to perform maintenance, repair and overhaul on US registered business aviation aircraft at its Albrecht Duerer Airport headquarters in Nuremberg.

Siegfried Axtmann, Founder and Chairman of the FAI Aviation Group, comments: “This latest approval from the FAA is yet another milestone for FAI Technik as it continues to see growing demand. We look forward to serving some of the many US-registered aircraft operating in Europe and on the African Continent as we continue to extend our remit and capabilities and deliver excellent results for our customers.”

Last month, FAI Technik started work on its sixth in-house Global Express cabin refurbishment which marked one of the most extensive refurbishment projects for the type.  Named ‘Project Pearl’, the Bombardier BD700 will include 60, 120- and 240-month inspections and feature Collins Aerospace’s latest VenueTM cabin management system and high definition entertainment system.

FAI Technik provides MRO services for Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global Express aircraft, including the FAI rent-a-jet AG operated fleet. It also supports FAI´s dedicated fleet of air ambulance jets. The division is supported by some 60 full time staff.
