The Lufthansa Technik Component Services (LTCS) operation in Tulsa, Oklahoma, has received Civil Aviation Administration of China certification. It also has become the 33rd design department of Lufthansa Technik’s European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) 21/J Design Organization, and the first for its Americas region.
“In 2017, the idea was born that LTCS should have its own design engineers to be as flexible as possible in a constantly changing aftermarket environment,” said LTCS COO Tobias Baumgart. “After two years of training and mentorship program, LTCS is very proud to start this new chapter with three design engineers.”
The designation gives LTCS the ability to develop further repair methods to improve the component services of the company in the Americas, as well as improve turnaround times and reliability, and overcome material obsolescence. LTCS, a subsidiary of Lufthansa Technik Group, encompasses 11 facilities and more than 680 employees in North, Central, and South America that provide comprehensive MRO services of aircraft components.
