Aero Norway achieves UAE GCAA CAR 145 Maintenance Organisation Approval
Stavanger, Norway, April 20th: Norway-based engine MRO facility Aero Norway AS has been granted UAE GCAA CAR 145 Maintenance Organisation Approval. The engine MRO centre is now multi-release FAA, EASA, TCCA, CAAC and GCAA certified.
GCAA certification allows Aero Norway to carry out maintenance of engines for aircraft registered in the UAE in accordance with CAR Part-145. The certification covers the full spectrum of services offered by CFM authorised repair station Aero Norway across all three engine models: CFM56-3, CFM56-5B and CFM56-7B.
“At Aero Norway the focus is always on delivering the best service and industry-recognised EGT margins that we can,” comments Glenford Marston, General Manager – Aero Norway. ”We have recently moved to a shift working regime for our dedicated repair technicians and support staff, and securing GCAA approval demonstrates that our capabilities across core technical skills are recognised worldwide. We sought GCAA approval in response to an overwhelming demand from our customer base across the Middle East, it further strengthens our existing approvals and qualifies our global appeal to operators of CFM engines.”
Aero Norway’s focus on a program of continuous improvement, making use of the most modern, up to date equipment and technology, ensures that all of its maintenance and repairs whether in the Stavanger workshop, or on-wing, are carried out to the highest standard, making it well placed in such a commercially competitive environment. The Company’s modern facility is specifically designed for CFM56® engine maintenance and has capacity for up to 120 engines per year – this is now further bolstered by GCAA approval.
“Multi-release certification means that we provide a portfolio of winning engine MRO services,” says Marston. “We recently achieved CAAC approval to capitalise on the huge future potential for our engine support programmes in China and looking forward we will further extend the global reach of our services in South East Asia with the granting of Indonesian approval.”
