AerFin’s MRO facility in Caerphilly, UK, has received FAR 145 accreditation from the Federal Aviation Administration, becoming an approved repair station.
The accreditation is part of AerFin’s engine maintenance expansion plans, which it said would officially launch “imminently”.
Under the plans, the company will offer a range of in-house and off-wing maintenance activities, including quick turn services, hospital shop repairs and engine transitions.
The certification further complements the company’s existing European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) accreditations.
“This recognition is a testament to our quality control, compliance and project management work undertaken by the entire team,” said AerFin’s director of operations Simon Bayliss.
“Investing in the training of our employees to the latest regulatory standard and in our infrastructure including OEM engine line tooling was critical in delivering this certification.
“This FAA approval is international recognition of our capabilities and we look forward to supporting our expanding customer base with our engine MRO services.”
