Airbus Corporate Jet Center Gets Russian MRO Approval
Airbus Corporate Jet Centre (ACJC) has received Part 145 maintenance organization approval from the Russian State Centre of Aviation Flight Safety. The approval allows ACJC to perform base and line maintenance, light maintenance, heavy maintenance up to the six-year check and upgrades (Service Bulletin/EO embodiment on both airframe and systems), as well as aircraft modifications on Russian-registered A320-series aircraft. It also includes trouble-shooting worldwide.
With the latest approval, ACJC is performing maintenance and aircraft modifications for several Airbus corporate jets in Eastern Europe, including government ACJs.
Last year the company signed a VIP Pass agreement with SFD Russia, the operator of two federal state Airbus ACJ319s, “in what is the first customized package dedicated entirely to ACJ operators for long-term maintenance,” said Jérôme Ferasin, head of services sales. VIP Pass is a suite of seven customizable services covering scheduled and unscheduled maintenance in a single, optional package. Services include system upgrade and cabin refurbishment; airframe maintenance; full engine and nacelle support; spares management (pool and repair); airworthiness and maintenance engineering services (Camo); entry-into-service and on-site assistance; and access to aircraft manufacturer services.
