European regulators have approved ExecuJet MRO Services Belgium to provide line maintenance in other European countries.
ExecuJet MRO Services’ main base for line maintenance in Belgium is Brussels Airport and it has another MRO facility at Flanders International Airport, near Kortrijk, which does mainly heavy maintenance.
“Following strong demand from customers, there was a need for us to offer line maintenance at locations away from our home base,” said Christophe de Coppel, regional vice president, Europe, at ExecuJet MRO Services. “The requests from customers were ad hoc, so we decided to seek regulatory approval to have our mobile repair unit (MRU) provide line maintenance. The MRU uses a land vehicle, making it feasible for our engineers to travel throughout Belgium and to nearby countries such as the Netherlands, Germany, France, Luxembourg, etc.”
ExecuJet’s MRU is equipped with the necessary consumables, tooling and cabinets, and has access to all the necessary maintenance data required to meet work order requests for scheduled line maintenance and unscheduled aircraft service.
The Belgium Civil Aviation Authority granted the approval and the European Aviation Safety Agency then validated it, paving the way for ExecuJet MRO Services to provide line maintenance beyond Belgium.
“Our regulatory approval is significant because MRUs usually only respond to aircraft-on-the-ground (AOG) situations, but we are now approved to also use our MRU to provide line maintenance in other European countries,” said de Coppel. “Having this new capability helps us to reach a larger pool of customers and reinforces Belgium’s position as a centre for MRO in Europe.”
