Aircraft wheel and brake MRO World Aero has achieved FAA certification as a Part-145 Repair Station for their UK based facility, close to London’s Gatwick, Heathrow and City Airports. The wheel and brake repair facility is now EASA/FAA dual release certified.
FAA certification allows World Aero to carry out maintenance of wheel and brake components for aircraft registered in the United States in accordance with 14 CFR Part-145. Certification means that World Aero will be held to the FAA’s rigorous high standards, ensuring that the repair station’s programmes, systems, and methods of compliance are continuously reviewed, evaluated, and tested.
Having FAA, to add to EASA certification, seals World Aero’s credentials as a globally recognised wheel and brake repair facility, with dual release ensuring manifold benefits to operators. Those with parts originating from, or currently operating in, the United States can send repairs with total peace of mind. Operators, stockists, leasing companies and MROs requiring dual release on stock items can now choose World Aero for all repairs, saving time, minimising administration, guaranteeing quality, and ensuring that customer profitability can be maximised with World Aero as a partner.
Phil Randell, World Aero’s Managing Director, comments: “Having undergone extensive preparation prior to obtaining certification, we are delighted to have World Aero’s wheel and brake maintenance capabilities and the expertise of our skilled technicians recognised. FAA certification means that World Aero can now approach customers at a different level with a totally comprehensive capability. With the expertise and facilities to accommodate growth, we can increase our output with no loss of efficiency, making our work flow and lean processes available to a much wider range of customers.
“Dual release certification means that we are now the optimum choice for wheel and brake MRO services. With our newly constructed energy efficient facility in West Sussex with easy accessibility from London, constant evaluation of machinery and procedures, and our track record with many of the world’s largest airlines and aircraft spares dealers, choosing World Aero is a sound business decision.”
