The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has certified Embraer as a Part 147 maintenance training organization. The approval covers the four E-Jets of the Embraer 170/190 series (170, 175, 190 and 195). KLM Royal Dutch Airlines’ regional subsidiary KLM Cityhopper, the first customer for Embraer’s training, began the program last month at its headquarters at Schiphol International Airport in Amsterdam.
Brazil’s Embraer and Boca Raton, Florida-based Volvo Aero Services have entered a four-year partnership that makes Volvo Aero an official distribution center for Embaer aircraft parts. Included in the initial agreement are about 4,000 part numbers for the EMB 110 Bandeirante, EMB 120 Brasilia and ERJ 145 jet family.
