Associated Air Center (AAC) has obtained 145 repair station certification from the Brazilian civil aviation authority, ANAC. The certification was received on June 19, 2015, after a detailed on-site audit from the Brazilian authority. ANAC repair station certification will now allow AAC to maintain, repair and modify Brazil-registered VIP aircraft and return them to service.
The certification will apply for VVIP interior completions, scheduled maintenance, cabin refurbishment and cabin systems upgrades performed at AAC’s FAR-145 FAA repair station, at the company’s facility at Dallas Love Field in Dallas, Texas, USA.
“Our ANAC certification will provide Brazil-registered aircraft operators with more options outside of their countries and ensure they can select the best possible maintenance/repair services for VIP aircraft,” said James Colleary, president of AAC. “We hold several foreign 145 repair station approvals, which gives us an edge and opportunity for supporting a broad global customer base.”
AAC’s other certifications include an FAA organization designation authorization (ODA) and other foreign civil aviation certifications. “Our new ANAC 145 repair station approval opens another door to Latin America and we are already pursuing completions projects for multiple Brazilian customers,” said Colleary.
