FACC gains Part-145 approval in China


The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has granted FACC approval as a maintenance organisation according to Part-145, a certification that boosts the Austrian aerospace group’s aftermarket services business segment.

The CAAC approval process lasted one and a half years and means that FACC is now authorised to perform maintenance work on components and systems operating under Chinese registration. The CAAC joins FACC’s list of certifications, which also includes approvals from Europe’s EASA, the USA’s FAA and Canada’s TCCA.

“The strong growth in air traffic is also increasing the demand for qualified maintenance facilities in China. With this CAAC approval, FACC has established an excellent position for itself, and the good ratings in the approval process underline our high level of quality, expertise and reliability,” said Robert Machtlinger, CEO of FACC, adding “we therefore possess the ideal prerequisites for successfully positioning ourselves as a maintenance company in this emerging market.”
