Aviation services integrator GA Telesis has received an Air Agency Certificate from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency for its Specialized Procedures Aeroengine Hospital (SPAH) joint venture at the Wilmington Air Park in southwestern Ohio.

With this achievement, the joint venture aims to offer rapid jet engine maintenance services to the airline industry, significantly contributing to enhancing performance reliability. Once fully integrated and operational, the new facility can service up to two hundred engines annually, prioritizing those produced by General Electric and CFM International during the initial phase of operations.

The joint venture will now provide dual-release return to service documentation for its customers, allowing the use of parts and engines not only in the United States but in the European Union as well as countries with bilateral agreements with the FAA and EASA.

“This certification is a major milestone as we expand our capabilities in Wilmington,” said Russ Shelton, President of GA Telesis Engine Strategy Group.

“As we continue to expand the global footprint of ATSG, the opportunity to provide our global customers access to additional services increases the value of our LeasePlus offering,” stated Paul Chase, Chief Commercial Officer of ATSG, “this joint venture adds to that value with the addition of EASA certification.”
