TAP Maintenance and Engineering Brazil receives EASA certification for E-Jets family
In 2010, TAP Maintenance and Engineering Brazil earned the certificate of an Embraer Authorized Service Center (EASC) in Brazil, becoming the only aircraft maintenance company in Latin America certified for all service levels on all commercial aircrafts manufactured by Embraer, as regulated by ANAC and FAA. Now, TAP M&E Brazil, which already holds numerous certifications to perform aircraft heavy checks of the main manufacturers, has received certification from EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) for all maintenance levels on all E-Jets models manufactured by Embraer. Consequently, this will significantly increase the possibility of performing more services, especially for European operators. TAP M&E Brazil’s industrial complex consists of two Maintenance Centers—one in Rio de Janeiro (GIG) and the other in Porto Alegre (POA)—where, besides aircraft services, it offers several capabilities for engines, landing gear and aircraft components together with certificates from aviation authorities such as ANAC, FAA, EASA, TCCA, DGAC and others.
