First FAA Certificate issued to a Danish MRO facility since 2008

ScanTech (Scandinavian Aircraft Technologies A/S) has been certified by The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as the first MRO in Denmark since August 2008, when FAA was legally prohibited from issuing new foreign repair station certifications. Until now only two Danish MROs hold the FAA certification. With this certification ScanTech has been empowered to operate as Approved Repair Station, and may now maintain both EASA and FAA registered aircraft and engines.

"It has been a 7 year long process getting here. Obtaining the FAA certification is very important to us. It opens the market significantly to us", Tom Hassing, Managing Director remarks. "ScanTech is specialized in maintenance of Business aircraft, and 70% of the world business aircraft fleet is operated on US registration. This means that we can extend our services to the N-registered business aircraft, as well as repair and overhaul components and LDGs, which until now had to turn to facilities outside Denmark for service. We have the expertise and facilities, and we are looking forward to welcoming new customers in our hangars".

ScanTech is an EASA and now also FAA part 145 authorized aircraft maintenance facility with more than 37 years of Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) experience. 90% percent of the work at ScanTech is carried out on either Beechjets or Beechcraft King Airs. The activities at ScanTech also include: Continuous Airworthiness Maintenance Organisation (CAMO), engine inspections, pre-buy inspections, aircraft sales and sale of spare parts.

ScanTech is situated in Sindal in the Northern part of Denmark at Sindal Airport. Sindal Airport has a 30 x 1199 meter long runway. The airport has ILS and NDB allowing IMC operation in bad weather.

The Air Agency Certification issued to ScanTech has no.: QDSY523Y.
