AMAC Aerospace achieves granted Russian Maintenance Organisation Approval.

Tuesday 19th February 2013

Basel, Switzerland-based AMAC Aerospace announced today that it has been granted Maintenance Organisation Approval, MOA, by the Moscow-based State Civil Aviation Administration of Russia.

The approval, which was awarded towards the end of last year, allows AMAC to carry out base and line maintenance work on all Russian-owned small to mid size/narrow body aircraft up to Boeing 737NG and Airbus Corporate Jet ACJ319 types. In addition, the approval allows AMAC to undertake heavy maintenance work up to C Check levels at its state-of-the-art facility at EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg.

The maintenance team at AMAC Aerospace has already undertaken work on a number of Russian owned jets including work on Gulfstream 450, Gulfstream 550, Airbus A319 and Boeing 737NG types.

With the latest approval AMAC is now well positioned to expand its offering to its existing client base and to widen its presence in this important executive aviation market place. This new approval serves to further open up the Russian market for the world's largest family run completions, refurbishment and maintenance specialists, and forms the foundation of a long term strategy to facilitate work on Russian registered aircraft for specific maintenance projects.

The Russian approval adds to the existing broad range of base and line maintenance approvals which AMAC Aerospace has achieved which cover a wide range of aircraft from the versatile Pilatus PC12-NG, for which it is the exclusive Sales Distributor in the Middle East through to the wide body Boeing B747-400 and B747-8 Series Part 145 for which approvals were granted in Autumn 2012. AMAC also holds a number of international approvals from a variety of international countries including Aruba, Nigeria, Cameroon, The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the UAE, where it is GCAA approved.

"Russia is a significant executive aviation region and we see great potential from other Russian owners looking for the excellence and dedication our maintenance teams demonstrate in exceeding the expectations of a demanding clientele," said Kadri Muhiddin CEO of AMAC Aerospace. "We are pleased to be able to offer our services to this expanding region."

It is anticipated much of the new work will take place amongst the trio of hangars including the new wide body addition at its EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg headquarters. The third hangar which opened in September 2012 is supporting AMAC's continued growth in providing maintenance for wide-bodied aircraft. The new hangar, identical in size to AMAC's second hangar which opened in 2010, can accommodate aircraft as large as the Boeing 747-8i, Boeing 777 and Airbus A340.
