Etihad Airways Engineering receives Part 145 approval extension by EASA

Posted 8 February 2017 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways Engineering has been granted a major extension by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to its existing Part 145 Scope of Approval, expanding worldwide market opportunities for the company.

The approval extension covers heavy maintenance for new platforms such as the Boeing 787 and Airbus A380 aircraft, and the grant of a new B1/B3 limited approval for the Engine Shop.

Jeff Wilkinson, chief executive officer of Etihad Airways Engineering, said: “The new extension to our existing approval from EASA gives us the ability to maintain Boeing 787 aircraft up to the equivalent of a C2 maintenance inspection. “EASA has also granted Etihad Airways Engineering Airbus A380 capability up to and including 12-year Base Maintenance, enabling us to offer a complete range of A380 engineering and maintenance services to our customers from all over the world.”

In addition to the A380 and Boeing 787 approvals, the Engine Shop B1/B3 approval allows its Engine Shop personnel to issue EASA Form 1s on a limited basis. These initial steps will drive Etihad Airways Engineering to develop and expand its future capability.
