HAITEC Aircraft Maintenance has been granted approval to perform Part 145 line maintenance on G650 jets. As an EASA Part 145 organization, HAITEC already holds approvals from the civil aviation organizations of Russia, the UAE, Azerbaijan and Bermuda, as well as the FAA, for a range of Boeing and Airbus aircraft, as well as Gulfstream business jets.
“Besides line maintenance for G650s, our Erfurt subsidiary, HAITEC VIP Maintenance, is now also capable of offering cleaning and storage for such jets in the heart of Germany,” said Frank Rott, CEO of HAITEC. “This new capability brings an added level of convenience to G650 operators in Europe as the number of maintenance providers with that approval is limited.”
In 2014, HAITEC announced a €30m three-year expansion program. The program includes the establishment of HAITEC VIP Aircraft Maintenance in Erfurt, the acquisition of a hangar at Hahn Airport, and the purchase of the surrounding property for the construction of a second maintenance facility adjacent to the current one. HAITEC is preparing for the new 17,000m² hangar, which is set to begin operations in summer 2016.
“We continue to widen the span of MRO services HAITEC can offer to commercial and VIP customers,” said Rott. “In late summer, we are also expecting to receive our Gulfstream G650 approval for base maintenance. Our steady growth also puts us in a privileged position to offer new employment opportunities to qualified international aviation professionals in Erfurt and Hahn.”
