With the receipt of certification approval as an EASA Part 145 Maintenance Organisation, FL ARI Aircraft Maintenance & Engineering Company (FL ARI) is now cleared to provide line maintenance support for aircraft from the Boeing 737 NG and Airbus A320 families.

    FL ARI is a joint venture between China Aircraft Leasing Group (CALC), its mid- to end-of-life aircraft solutions arm Aircraft Recycling International (ARI), and FL Technics, a leading provider of MRO services in Europe.

    “We are happy that the joint venture company FL ARI has become the first independent MRO organization in Northeast China to obtain an EASA Part 145 certification for line maintenance services. This certification will enable us to share FL Technics’ know-how and best practices, which we have acquired through 20 years of working globally in MRO,” says Donatas Dockus, CEO of FL ARI.

    “China’s aviation industry has been forecast to be one of the fastest-growing in the world over the next 10 years. In the near future, FL ARI will extend its MRO capability by obtaining an EASA Part 145 certification for base maintenance services as well.”

    CEO of CALC and ARI, Mike Poon, said: “Receiving an EASA Part 145 Maintenance Organisation certification from the EASA is an honour, and is a result of all the hard work and effort from all the partners involved.

    “Thanks to the excellence and experience of CALC Group and our partners, as well as the support from the EASA, FLARI is now able to provide excellent line maintenance support in China.

    “I do not doubt that the FL ARI team will bring the highest work ethic and business standards to Asia’s aviation market and that through the combination of the resources of CALC Group and FL Technics’ experience. FL ARI will become a significant force in MRO services in China.”
