Antavia AMETEK MRO and Viking Air Limited of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, have renewed their comprehensive landing gear maintenance support for an additional three years. This agreement, originally initiated in 2018, confirms Antavia as a Factory Endorsed Component Centre (FECC) and official repair station to support Viking’s Canadair’s fleet of CL215/CL215T/415/415EAF aircraft with landing gears.
With 20 years of experience and expertise, Antavia thus reaffirms its position as Canadair’s landing gear maintenance leader, covering more than 60% of the worldwide fleet. Viking continues to select Antavia as the preferred vendor to provide landing gear maintenance under the Maintenance Plus (M+) program, a maintenance program specifically developed by Viking to meet operators’ requirements.
Antavia’s commitment to Viking, and to the aerial firefighting community, is shown through the company’s continuous investment not only in the technical field, but in the human element as well. Over the last few years, Antavia has developed a spare parts inventory of US$10 million, strengthened its dedicated engineering and workshop teams, and added new machining resources.
