RUAG Australia has gained EASA Part 145 approval, allowing the Bayswater, Victoria-based MRO to perform component MRO and line support for European-registered aircraft.

This certification, which builds on RUAG’s Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority Part 145 designation, applies to aircraft components in systems such as air conditioning and pressurization, engine/APU, fuel, pneumatic and vacuum, and ice/rain/fire protection. It also allows it to perform non-destructive testing, to include fluorescent penetrant inspection and magnetic particle inspection.

“RUAG excels in the areas of optimized component services, aircraft availability, and reduced life-cycle costs,” said RUAG Australia general manager Terry Miles. “We are now able to apply this considerable experience to benefit operators of private and commercial aircraft that are registered in Europe and flying in Australia, both domestically as well as regionally.”

“These EASA and CASA Part 145 approvals combine with our Defence-issued DASA 145 approval to instill RUAG Australia with an exceptional depth…to all operators, both commercial and defense,” added RUAG MRO international senior v-p of aviation Stephan Jezler.
