The UK CAA has certified FL Technics to extend its Part-145 maintenance capabilities to the CFM56 family of engines.

The milestone complements FL Technics’ existing approvals from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for engine repairs conducted at its facility in Kaunas, Lithuania.

CFM56 family of engines

Valerij Deveikis, CEO of FL Technics Engine Services, said his team remained “focused on sustainable business development, which requires consistency in operations as well as improvement, thus I trust that this new certification by the UK CAA will strengthen FL Technics Engine Services’ position in the market”.

He added: “Together with the whole FL Technics group, we are now ready to provide even more tailored and efficient engine solutions in our quick-turn engine shop in Kaunas, Lithuania.”

FL Technics MRO hangar

FL Technics operates its own MRO hangar next to the aircraft painting facility near the Kaunas International Airport (KUN).

FL Technics Engine Services is an integral part of the comprehensive MRO hub for the region. The team supports clients and partners in various business cases, including aircraft delivery projects, engine sales, trade contracts, and of course engine repair and teardown projects.

Clive Rankin, head of engines programmes in FL Technics, said: “Supply and demand in the market is particularly tense for aircraft engines, as airlines and lessors are motivated to have as many aircraft airborne as possible. As a result, aircraft engines have become the most valuable asset to source in the market.

“Our new certification broadens the range of opportunities to service and supply engines not only within EASA and FAA regulated markets but now also allowing us to supply our customers with solutions in the UK market.”Subscribe to the FINN weekly newsletter
