US approval milestone extends FAI Technik reach
US registered business aircraft in Europe and Africa can now receive the MRO attentions of FAI Technik in Germany, as Cayman, Nigerian and Bermudan aircraft have for some time already.
FAI Technik has received FAA approval for its EASA MRO licence.

FAI Technik, the maintenance division of Germany's FAI Aviation Group, has received FAA approval for its EASA Part 145 licence. With the certificate in place, the company is fully authorised to perform maintenance, repair and overhaul on US registered business aviation aircraft at its Albrecht Duerer airport headquarters in Nuremberg. This latest licence follows similar approvals from the Nigerian authorities in October 2018 and from the Cayman Islands and Bermuda in 2017.

Group founder and chairman Siegfried Axtmann comments: “This latest approval from the FAA is yet another milestone for FAI Technik as it continues to see growing demand. We look forward to serving some of the many US-registered aircraft operating in Europe and on the African continent as we continue to extend our remit and capabilities and deliver excellent results for our customers.”

Last month, FAI Technik started work on its sixth in-house Global Express cabin refurbishment which marked one of the most extensive refurbishment projects for the type. Named 'Project Pearl', the Bombardier BD700 will include 60, 120- and 240-month inspections and feature Collins Aerospace's latest Venue cabin management system and high definition entertainment system.

FAI Technik provides MRO services for Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global Express aircraft, including the FAI rent-a-jet operated fleet and FAI's dedicated fleet of air ambulance jets. The division is supported by some 60 full time staff.
