CAAC has granted FACC approval as a maintenance organization according to Part-145. This CAAC certification represents a further milestone for the Austrian aerospace group in its latest "Aftermarket Services" business segment. It joins the long list of certifications the company already holds, which include the European EASA, the FAA of the United States and the Canadian TCCA. FACC is thus taking an important step in the expansion of its global customer base and is offering airlines in the growing Chinese market a comprehensive range of maintenance, repair and modification services.

"This certification issued by the Chinese aviation authority marks a great success for FACC and is the result of hard work and the combined effort of all parties involved," said Robert Machtlinger, CEO of FACC. "The strong growth in air traffic is also increasing the demand for qualified maintenance facilities in China. With this CAAC approval, FACC has established an excellent position for itself, and the good ratings in the approval process underline our high level of quality, expertise and reliability. We therefore possess the ideal prerequisites for successfully positioning ourselves as a maintenance company in this emerging market.”

The approval process of the Chinese aviation authority CAAC lasted one and a half years. FACC is now authorized to perform maintenance work on components and systems operating under Chinese registration. In Austria, there is only one other company besides FACC that has been awarded CAAC Part-145 approval. 

One-stop composite shop with turnkey competence

In its business field "Aftermarket Services", FACC relies on three main pillars: repair, refurbish and replace. The three FACC divisions - Aerostructures, Engines & Nacelles and Cabin Interiors - are supported by the Aftermarket Services with expanded solutions. Besides its core business - the development and production of lightweight components for the global aerospace industry - FACC has created a very favorable base of operations in the rapidly growing market with its competence as a turnkey partner and its powerful infrastructure in America, Asia and Europe. With its three approvals as a development organization (DOA), production organization (POA) and maintenance organization (MOA), FACC has realized the optimal conditions to be successful in this business field. In the MOA area in particular, FACC offers an ideal spectrum of maintenance and repair services with the EASA, TCCA and FAA Part-145 approvals. These include structural as well as engine and interior areas. With its comprehensive range of products and services, FACC ensures that aircraft get back into the air faster and more cost-effectively. All in keeping with its claim: “The future needs performance. We guarantee it.”
