H+S Aviation’s Abu Dhabi MRO facility has received European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part 145 approval for PW206/PW207 and PT6C-67C turboshaft engines, the BBA Aviation subsidiary announced on November 6. EASA certification follows the facility’s UAE CAR 145 approval earlier this year. Located in the Free Trade Zone of Abu Dhabi International Airport, H+S Middle East can now provide service and support to all PW206/PW207 and PT6-67C customers in the UAE and Europe.
The company continues to pursue more approvals to extend its rotorcraft capabilities and support customers in the larger Europe, Middle East and Africa region. One of those expanded capabilities involves certification of a test cell, subject to local planning approvals, by the first part of next year. “Once our test cell is certified, we will have complete test capacity for PT6C-67C, PW200 and PW210 series engines, which allows us to deliver full R&O capabilities in the region for these engine models,” explained H+S Aviation managing director Mark Taylor.
