Italian MRO provider Mecaer Aviation Group (MAG) has received EASA certification for its Philadelphia Part 145 rotorcraft repair station. According to the corporate aircraft specialist, the European authorization expands its support offerings, which include maintenance inspections; airworthiness management such as pre- and post-buy inspections; refurbishments, upgrades and modifications (including paint, avionics, and mission systems); cabin interior completions; electronics; and preparation for shipment.

According to a Mecaer spokesman, the company handles many foreign-registered helicopters at the Pennsylvania location, either being imported into the U.S. for sale or while being transitioned to a different operating area.

“Our added capability to support helicopter fleets marks a strategic milestone in our plan to better serve our customers,” said president Massimo Pugnali, adding the certification ensures the company can support maintenance needs of European-registered aircraft entering the U.S. “Whether the need is aircraft repairs or installations of our cabin comfort systems, MAG’s Philadelphia facility is fully-equipped to address our customers’ needs.”
