AMAC Turkey broadens MRO capabilities
AMAC Aerospace, a leading provider of corporate aviation maintenance and completion services, is returning to the 10th AIREX Istanbul Air Show, the international civil aviation and airports exhibition at Ataturk Airport (September 25th to 28th) with a raft of new maintenance approvals. AMAC Turkey, created two years ago, recently achieved approval from The Directorate General of Civil Aviation Turkey (DGCA) to perform base and line maintenance up to C Check on Dassault Falcon 900Ex Easy, 2000 and 2000Ex EASy models. Hard on the heels of this, the company, hopes to add European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approval for all these Dassault models in November as an extension of its current EASA part-145 certificate coverage. In addition, AMAC Turkey expects to achieve EASA and DGCA approval for line maintenance up to A Check for the Dassault Falcon 7x in 2015 Q1. AMAC is currently working with the US FAA to obtain FAR 145 approval in order to serve customers with US ´N´ registered Dassault Falcon and Pilatus PC-12 turboprop aircraft which require maintenance when coming in and out of Turkey. AMAC Turkey at Ataturk Airport has enjoyed a successful 12 months, with highlights including approval as a Dassault Falcon Authorised Service Centre in April, plus maintenance approvals for the Falcon 900B and Falcon 900EX EASy from the DGCA in October 2013 and from EASA in January 2014.
