FL Technics Extends CAMO Capabilities For Airbus, Boeing Aircraft
Lithuanian MRO provider FL Technics has updated its CAMO (Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization) certification to add capabilities for Airbus A220, Boeing 737 MAX and 787 aircraft.
FL Technics announced the European Union Aviation Safety Agency approval on Tuesday (Jan. 31) and said the latest certification stems from work undertaken throughout last year. The company cites the increase in new-generation aircraft fleets and says that maintaining these new aircraft will require new specialisms and capabilities.
“Our company is focused on sustainable, modern and reliable engineering solutions; that is why I consider the new certification extension as a decisive and strategic development of our team,” says Oleksandr Kulyk, deputy CEO for engineering at FL Technics. “Technical expertise and diligence have proven our capacity to bring development in line with global trends. We are supporting a wide range of operators and lessors across the globe, and the trend we see demonstrates positive and promising development.”
Kulyk adds that FL Technics expects to grow the number of aircraft types under its capabilities soon. Of the three aircraft now under CAMO approval, Aviation Week Intelligence Network Commercial Aviation 2023 Fleet & MRO Forecast data projects the biggest MRO demand for the 787, which will dominate the future widebody market alongside the A350. An estimated $90.3 billion is projected in maintenance spend for the 787 between this year and 2032.
Meanwhile, the 737 MAX is expected to generate $55.6 billion during the same period, while the A220, formerly the Bombardier CSeries before Airbus acquired the program in 2020, will account for a much smaller market and generate $8 billion in demand over the next 10 years.
Over the past year, FL Technics has focused on further capability additions throughout its European operations as it looks to ramp up its business for a recovering commercial aftermarket.
These additions have included setting up a wheels and brakes repair shop in Hanover last April. It also gained FAA approval in December 2022 for the FL Technics Engines business it set up back in 2020.
