CAAC certification enables HAECO Americas to perform periodic checks on Boeing 757


HAECO Americas Airframe Services Repair Station, located at Piedmont Triad Airport in Greensboro, North Carolina, USA, has received certification from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to perform A, B and C checks on Chinese-registered Boeing 757 aircraft. Additionally, the CAAC approval, under section CCAR-145R2, authorizes HAECO Americas to perform passenger-to-freighter conversions in accordance with validation of supplemental type certificate (VSTC).

“We are proud to announce that through diligent, collaborative efforts with our Chinese partners and the CAAC, HAECO Americas now joins a selected group of companies that can support customers with this authority,” said Jim Sokol, president of MRO services at HAECO Americas.

“HAECO Americas looks forward to working closely with the CAAC to facilitate transitioning converted aircraft into China and supporting our customers with a global network of approved maintenance facilities.”

This certification complements existing FAA and EASA certificates held by HAECO Americas Airframe Services. It permits HAECO Americas to pursue additional ratings in the future through coordination with the CAAC.
