Aviation design and production company, J&C Aero, has been granted its first EASA Part 145 approval, which certifies it to conduct in-house component maintenance and repairs, covering air conditioning and pressurisation, doors and hatches, electrical power and lights, equipment, windows, and structural components.
The company already offers EASA Part 21G/J aircraft cabin modification and repair solutions for Airbus and Boeing aircraft operators, owners and lessors.
J&C Aero currently operates 1,500 square meters of facilities that include cabin interior design, production and print shops, as well as testing laboratories, a warehouse, and a newly opened component repair shop. By the end of Q1 2022, J&C Aero plans to more than double its main facilities near Vilnius International Airport (VNO) in Lithuania, increasing total space to 3,500 square meters.
“We started purely as a design company, focusing on the development of various cabin interior elements. Step by step we have been expanding our capabilities by adding production and other services. By aiming to become a single point for all aircraft cabin-related needs, adding MRO capabilities is the logical next step for us,” stated Laurynas Skukauskas, CEO of J&C Aero, “We are grateful to the Transport Competence Agency for their guidance throughout the certification process. And, of course, big praise to our component repair team that made it all possible.”
