Volga-Dnepr Technics Moscow (VDTM), part of Volga-Dnepr Technics subgroup – a maintenance, repair and overhaul division of Volga-Dnepr Group, has successfully passed a certification process to become an approved maintenance organization for Sukhoi Super Jet 100 aircraft under Russian Federal Aviation Regulations 285.

VDTM is now capable to provide line maintenance, structural repair and non-destructive testing services on the aircraft type SSJ100 at the company’s Moscow-Sheremetyevo (SVO) facilities with prospective scope expansion to include base maintenance and additional line stations.

“We have recently seen an evident global trend of progressively increasing numbers of Sukhoi aircraft, specifically in the markets of Western Europe, Asia and Latin America. There is a growing base of local air carriers adding the Russian-made aircraft to their fleets, which I believe is very beneficial to the national aircraft industry. So, it was only a matter of time for VDTM to obtain an approval for SSJ-100 line maintenance. We are poised to deliver exceptional quality services to our customers and play an active role in development of the SSJ-100 product,” said Evgeny Kochetov, General Director of Volga-Dnepr Technics Moscow.

“Enhancement of the service level is one of our prime objectives. We are extending the stock list and increasing the quantity of spare parts in warehouses, improving the maintenance schedules and developing our network of partners. As of today, there are 8 companies, including Volga-Dnepr Technics MSK, that can provide services to SSJ100, and we plan to further expand our network of service centers both within Russia and abroad”, said Ilya Tarasenko, President of Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company.

VDTM currently holds an extensive number of approvals, including EASA Part-145 and Part-147, Bermuda OTAR-145 and OTAR-39 Subpart F, as well as from national CAA which cover aircraft types, such as B737NG, B737CL, B747-200/300/400/8, A320 Family and the newly added SSJ-100.
