Bombardier Commercial Aircraft announced  that its Authorized Service Facility (ASF), SAMCO Aircraft Maintenance B.V. has received its C Series aircraft Part 145 base maintenance approval from the Civil Aviation Authority, The Netherlands. This approval recognizes SAMCO as the first Part 145 Aircraft Maintenance Organization (AMO) in the world, outside of Bombardier’s own manufacturing facilities. SAMCO will provide maintenance services on C Series aircraft based in Europe and the surrounding regions.

“We are delighted with our Part 145 approval and with the distinction of being the first Bombardier C Series aircraft ASF in the world,” said Constant van Schaik, Chief Executive Officer, SAMCO. “With our AMO approval, SAMCO can now provide line and base maintenance, and Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization (CAMO) services to operators of Bombardier’s C Series aircraft. In the future -- when the aircraft are due for heavy checks -- we will be ready to assist with such services as well.”

“SAMCO has been working diligently towards obtaining its Part 145 approval for the C Series aircraft since being selected by Bombardier as an ASF in June 2015, and we are thrilled with this accomplishment,” said Todd Young, Vice President and General Manager, Customer Services, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “SAMCO has been working closely with us as we prepare for the first delivery and entry-into-service of the C Series aircraft in the coming weeks, and we look forward to the ongoing collaboration.”

SAMCO also provides aircraft maintenance services on Q Series aircraft as part of Bombardier’s global network of strategically located ASFs.
