AFI KLM E&M gains FAA approval for LEAP maintenance

On May 28, AFI KLM E&M has received approval from the Federal Aviation Authority, to carry out on-wing/on site work on LEAP-type engines. The MRO Group has thus passed a new milestone in the industrialization and marketing of its maintenance services dedicated to the new-generation powerplant.

Along with the European Air Safety Agency (EASA), the FAA is one of the world’s most important bodies responsible for civil aviation. After gaining approval from EASA, AFI KLM E&M has been granted that of the FAA and is accordingly continuing to ramp up its LEAP industrialization program. The Group is now also able to offer its services to North American airlines operating the new-generation engine.

One of the first MRO services suppliers to support LEAP operators worldwide, AFI KLM E&M is already meeting the needs of its customers in carrying out the first wing/on site work on LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B engines. The scope of that work may include engine build-up services, borescope inspections, or changing Line Replaceable Units (LRU).
