2Excel Engineering, based in Lasham, Hampshire, UK, has gained Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approval to add Airbus A320neo family CFM LEAP-1A aircraft to its Maintenance Organisation Approval Certificate.
The company already holds approvals to perform heavy maintenance checks on several aircraft types, including Boeing 727, 737 and 757, the Airbus A320ceo family, Beechcraft King Air and Piper PA-31 aircraft.
“Neo is one of many upgrades introduced by Airbus to maintain its A320 product line’s position as the world’s most advanced and fuel-efficient single-aisle aircraft family, bringing with it reduced noise levels, as well as upgraded passenger space and comfort,” said Matt Caswell, CEO of 2Excel Engineering. “We have now welcomed the first ever Airbus A320 family neo aircraft to Lasham, operated by Titan Airways, to commence its C check and this is a huge moment for the staff involved in making this happen. I would like to thank them all for their hard work and dedication.”
“By adding Airbus A320neo CFM LEAP-1A aircraft to our Part 145 certificate, we will have expanded our capabilities and this allows us to build stronger relationships with both new and existing customers as they modernise their fleets,” continued Caswell. “Gaining this approval is also a further proof point of our drive to grow and expand our business and is part of our strategic roadmap to broaden the scope of what we can offer our customers, as well as securing long-term prospects for our company, its employees and the local economy.”
“2Excel Engineering has always been a very reliable partner for our Boeing 737 and 757 base maintenance requirements,” said Alastair Willson, managing director of Titan Airways. “We are very pleased they now have approval to carry out maintenance on our Airbus A321neos. This is the first of four A320 family checks we shall carry out at 2Excel Engineering this year.”
