Comlux America was awarded a Foreign EASA 145 certificate on January 22, 2016. The authorization allows Comlux to perform base maintenance and interior completions on EU-registered aircraft not type certificated by the FAA.
Comlux America has held an EASA supplement to its FAA Part 145 since 2011, which allowed for maintenance and completion work on EU-registered aircraft. This remains in place, along with supplements from countries including South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Bermuda and Aruba.
“A Foreign EASA 145 certificate for Comlux America opens the doors for even more opportunities,” said Arnaud Martin, executive vice president, Comlux the Aviation Group. “This certification demonstrates the high quality of our organization, fully recognized on both sides of the Atlantic, an advantage over our US- and Europe-based competitors as we can now perform work just as if we were based in Europe. With the combination of this new certification and the value of the dollar, Comlux is more competitive than ever.”
Comlux America recently completed a hangar expansion to allow for wide-body aircraft. The first wide-body induction, an ACJ330 completion, took place in the first quarter of 2015. There are currently three aircraft under completion at the facility, which is based at Indianapolis International Airport in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.
