AMAC Aerospace, the Swiss-based provider of corporate aviation maintenance and completion services, has been granted Boeing B747-400 and B747-8 series Part 145 approval with immediate effect. Base and line maintenance services on these types can now be provided to all AMAC customers, with no restrictions.
The news of the Boeing approvals comes hot on the heels of AMAC Aerospace gaining its European EASA Part 145 approval to undertake heavy base maintenance on the Boeing 777 Series (announced this June) and Airbus A330 and A340 Series (announced earlier this month). The company can now accept scheduled and unscheduled maintenance activities for airframe and powerplants. In addition, also announced earlier in September, AMAC Aerospace Basel has received UAE CAMO approval, making it authorised to provide Continuous Airworthiness Management services on UAE registered aircraft. Customers operating aircraft in this region can now take advantage of AMAC Aerospace’s expert aviation management know-how and extensive maintenance services.
AMAC Aerospace continues to perform all major inspections including repairs and modifications, delivery of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Customer Bulletins (CB) Service Bulletins (SB) and Airworthiness directive (AD) avionic repairs, upgrades and other installation undertakings, adding to the company’s extensive maintenance service capabilities.
