- MRO provider TS&S has been granted approval by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to service V2500 engines at its repair facility in Abu Dhabi
Aerospace Turbine Services & Solutions LLC (TS&S), a leading maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider for aero engines that is wholly owned by Mubadala Investment Company PJSC (Mubadala), has become the first MRO in the region certified by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to service V2500 engines. Announced today at the MRO Asia-Pacific conference in Singapore, the significant achievement will see the UAE-based company expand its MRO facility for V2500 engines on aircraft operating under Chinese registration.
Building on its success in achieving approvals from international aviation regulatory authorities in Asia (Nepal, China, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and Thailand), and South America (Brazil, Chile and Argentina), TS&S is holding the MENA region’s highest number of civil aviation authority certifications. So far this year the Abu Dhabi-based MRO has achieved a 60% increase in certifications, underpinned by fast and growing international MRO markets.
At the moment, China is the second largest domestic aviation market in the world with the fastest growing passenger traffic rate of 6.6% per year. This certification gives TS&S a great opportunity to take its expertise and globally recognized service capabilities in aero engines to the world’s second largest economy and fastest growing aviation industry.
Mansoor Janahi, Acting CEO of TS&S, commented: “As the region’s only CAAC-certified MRO, we are honored to be recognized by an international leading aviation authority for our industry leadership. Our teams have extensively worked to meet the toughest requirements of CAAC which is a recognition of the highest quality and premium standards of our work.”
The engine repair and overhaul operations will continue to take place at TS&S’ state-of-the-art facilities in Abu Dhabi.Email This Post
