FL ARI obtains CAAC Part 145 Maintenance Organization Certification for Base Maintenance

FL ARI Aircraft Maintenance & Engineering Company Ltd., an aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service provider based in Harbin, China, has successfully completed the audit and received the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) approval on company’s base maintenance capabilities, and has been granted Part 145 maintenance certification to carry out regular maintenance, repair, modification and other operations for Airbus A320 series aircraft.

“This CAAC Airbus A320 family certificate opens the door and access to all Chinese airlines. To date, almost 1,800 Airbus A320 family aircraft are used in China. Last year, in 2020, we were the first independent aircraft maintenance and overhaul services company in the North China region to receive EASA Part-145 certification for Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 NG Line maintenance. This certificate allows FL ARI to benefit from 20 years of FL Technics experience in servicing and repairing aircraft on a global scale,” said Donatas Dockus, CEO of FL ARI.

The next step in company’s growth strategy is the base maintenance certificate for Boeing 737 NG family that the company is planning to receive in the next few months.

“Analysts predict that the aviation services market in China will be one of the fastest growing in the world over the next ten years. Therefore, in order to provide a full range of MRO services to the aviation market participants in this region, we plan to obtain EASA 145 approvals for base maintenance in the near future,” Donatas Dockus, CEO of FL ARI, explained.

“The accumulation of business resources from the Group’s aged aircraft asset management and the technical expertise of FL Technics have laid an important foundation for the development of FL ARI. The 145 base maintenance license, issued by the CAAC, is not only a milestone in promoting the professional development of MRO business, but also an additional strength to the professional management of the Group’s aircraft assets. Thanks to the team’s careful preparation and CAAC’s support, we will further provide value-added services for our customers with LEAN service quality and efficient support capability,” commented Mike Poon, CEO of CALC.
