German MRO provider Atlas Air Service has been approved to provide maintenance on the popular Cessna Citation Latitude. The approval includes all overhaul, repair, and modification on the midsize twin that entered service in 2015.
The approval from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) follows Atlas’s successful demonstration of its capabilities to German federal aviation authority LBA. “We have implemented this extension of our maintenance capability upon a recent customer request,” said Atlas Air CAMO manager Serkan Akin. “Responding very quickly to customer requirements with effective solutions is our key to success. In this case, it is also a perfect addition to our existing maintenance offer[ings].”
Akin noted that Atlas has more than 40 years of experience in the maintenance of Cessna Citations, making the company an “expert” in the market and with authorizations to maintain most Citation models. The company operates four service centers—in Bremen, Ganderkesee, Stuttgart, and Augsburg—and is also an Embraer Executive Jets-authorized service center.
