The Textron subsidiary Able Aerospace Services has achieved certification from the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) as an approved maintenance organisation (AMO). The JCAB-AMO certification, which is issued by Japan’s minister of land, infrastructure, transport and tourism, allows the service centre to perform repair or alteration of aircraft components including rotors, transmissions, mechanical/ electric accessories and major parts for JCAB-licensed operators.

“This certification underscores our positive working relationship with the Japanese aviation industry and its trust in our capabilities,” said Able Aerospace Services chief executive Lee Benson.

Mark McNatt, Able Aerospace Services vice-president, said: “This was a rigorous two-year project for Able, but well worth the investment.

“It is a stamp of approval for Able’s designated engineering representative repairs, approved replacement parts and overall maintenance, repair and overhaul effort.”

From its headquarters and maintenance facilities on the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in Mesa, Arizona, Able offers Federal Aviation Administration approved component repair, overhaul and approved replacement parts solutions to commercial and military aviation fleets in more than 60 countries worldwide.
