Balance authorises Pilatus service centre in Kazakhstan
The opening of the service centre in Kazakhstan is a significant milestone in the development of Pilatus's global after-sales service network. The geographical location greatly simplifies maintenance in Central Asia.
A ceremony celebrating the appointment took place at Pure Technics' facility at Nursultan Nazarbayev International airport in Astana.

Balance Aviation, the exclusive authorised Pilatus sales and service centre in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Georgia, Greece, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, has appointed Pure Technics as the Pilatus Aircraft service centre in Kazakhstan. A ceremony celebrating the occasion took place at Pure Technics' facility at Nursultan Nazarbayev International airport in Astana and was attended by representatives of the Aviation Administration of Kazakhstan and airport executives.

The Pure Technics service centre provides a full cycle of after-sales service and airworthiness management, including operational and periodic maintenance, for the entire line of the РС-12 single engine turboprop aircraft and the РС-24 twin engine jet. The centre is fully equipped to carry out maintenance work on the Swiss aircraft. Its specialists have all the necessary qualifications and the centre has modern equipment, the necessary range of special tools and a stock of consumables to ensure the smooth operation of the aircraft.

“The opening and authorisation of the service centre in Kazakhstan is a significant milestone in the development of Pilatus Aircraft's global after-sales service network. The convenient geographical location greatly simplifies the operation and airworthiness maintenance of the aircraft of the famous Swiss brand in Central Asia, as well as opening up new opportunities for owners and operators. This is an important achievement for us, which brings the quality of after-sales support for our customers to a new level," says aftersales service director Dmitry Sokolov.

Several PC-24 super-versatile jets and PC-12 turboprops are already in service in Kazakhstan and other Central Asian countries. Their unique performance, as well as their efficiency, reliability and safety, make them indispensable for the development of business and special mission aviation.

Balance Aviation began operating as the exclusive sales and service centre for Pilatus aircraft in the region earlier this year. The company's offices are located in Limassol in Cyprus and Almaty in the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Pure Technics opened a service centre at Nursultan Nazarbayev airport in April 2022. In July 2022 the company received MRO certificate number QZ.145.0022 from the Aviation Administration of Kazakhstan, as well as the validation by the aviation authorities of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
