EASA approval aids Europeans using Metro products
According to Metro Aviation managing director Milton Geltz, receiving Part 145 approval from EASA will enable the company to better support European customers using any Metro STC/PMA products.
Metro Aviation will now be able to welcome EU customers to its Part 145 facility.

Metro Aviation, the helicopter completions specialist based in Shreveport, Louisiana, has been issued with a US approval certificate as a Part 145 organisation by EASA.

EASA is responsible for the certification of aircraft in the European Union and for some European non-EU countries.

“With the addition of this rating, we will be able to better support repair approval for our EU customers who are using any of the Metro Aviation STC/PMA products,” says Metro MD Milton Geltz.

Metro was required to meet four steps in the certification process to include technical familiarisation and certification basis, establishment of the certification programme, compliance demonstration and technical closure/issue of approval. Metro provides completion services to clients across the globe and has aircraft or aircraft parts operating on six of the world's seven continents.
