The certification recognises the high quality of Emirates Engineering and its organisation and procedures, and authorises it to carry out maintenance on US-registered civilian aircraft at its Dubai engineering HQ and at around the world.
The certification, under the so-called CFR Part 145 technical regulations, covers a wide range of aircraft and engines in use today in the aviation industry.
They include the Boeing 737, 747, 757, 767 and 777; Airbus A300, 310, 320, 330 and.340; and engines in use on both aircraft types, including Pratt & Whitney’s JT9 and 4000; General Electric’s.CF6-50,.CF6-80 and CFMI-56; and Rolls Royce RB211 and Trent 700/800.
The certification also recognises the capabilities of the Emirates Engineering workshops and covers maintenance of aircraft components, landing gears, wheels, radios, instruments, flight computers and safety equipment on these aircraft.
Adel Al Redha, Director of Emirates Engineering, said: “This is an important achievement for our department as we continue preparations to start services between Dubai and North America in April 2004.
“It confirms that Civil Aviation Airworthiness authorities around the world recognise the quality of our maintenance standards, including those in the UAE and the European JAA, and will help us to become the Middle East’s leading centre of excellence in aircraft maintenance.
“This international recognition will help us to win more world-wide customers for Emirates and Dubai in the worldwide third-party aircraft maintenance market,” he said.
