London Oxford Airport welcomes further MRO support capabilities through resident Hangar8 plc
London Oxford Airport-based aircraft management and engineering company Hangar8 plc, has further enhanced its third party support capabilities at its Oxford, UK, MRO facility, covering a broader range of bizjet types. Within less than a year of acquiring EASA 145 approval, the company now provides CAMO – Part M support and line support for all Hawker types including the 4000, the Beechjet/Hawker 400, the Dassault Falcon 2000, Citationjet (525) family and the Embraer Phenom 100. Recently added accreditations were for the Bombardier 601, 604 and 605 models, with Global 5000, 6000 and Falcon 50EX expected shortly. The company also plans to add Learjet 45/31A approvals and expand into support for Boeing and Airbus ACJ families by the middle of the fourth quarter, having already secured CAMO approval for the Embraer 170/190 (Lineage) and Citation Excel (560). Hangar8 now employs a team of 22 staff involved with the new MRO operation. On the base support side, with Hangar8 now supporting the largest managed fleet of Hawkers and one of the largest Challenger fleets in Europe, the company can now undertake typical annual inspections for its own managed fleet and that of third party customers. It is also mandated to cover warranty support on its own managed Hawker fleet.
