The Part 145 repair station of Fargo Jet Center (FJC) at Hector International airport in North Dakota has received certification from EASA via a recommendation by the FAA's Flight Standards District Office.

EASA stipulates that aircraft parts can only be inspected, maintained or altered by certified repair stations. Receiving EASA certification allows FJC to perform maintenance services on European-registered aircraft and endorses that the work conducted meets safety requirements.

“This certification is a significant step forward in our department's capabilities and allows us to provide unique services for our clients based in Europe,” says VP of technical services Mike Clancy. “The approval is also helpful in supporting our sister company Weather Modification International and aircraft sales division Exclusive Aircraft Sales, as the demand for special mission aircraft completions and support continues to rise.”

FJC currently holds a contract with Polish EMS operator Lotnicze Pogotowie Ratunkowe involving the design, modification and maintenance support of two Bombardier Learjet 75 aircraft. With the EASA certification, FJC's team has the authorisation to perform services on these aircraft both in the United States and Europe.

Additionally, the EASA certification ensures FJC can support any maintenance needs of European-registered aircraft entering the US through Fargo's Hector International airport 24/7 US Customs Port of Entry.

EASA certification can be renewed every two years by submitting evidence of continued adherence to the required standards.
