FL Technics Engine Services has been approved by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to provide aircraft engine repair and maintenance services in Kaunas, Lithuania, becoming the first organisation in the country and one of the few in the region with such capacity.
This is an important milestone not only for the company but for the whole industry as markets are facing disruptions in the supply chain and excessive demand for aircraft engines to meet the needs of surging operations of airlines across the globe already reaching pre-COVID levels.
The new FAA certification is an extension of current FL Technics capabilities approved by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) enabling the company to deliver dual-release projects. Such capability allows FL Technics to maintain and repair engines that can be sold and mounted on aircraft in both EASA and FAA-regulated markets. In current industry circumstances, this creates broader and more flexible opportunities for airlines and lessors to source and use engines from across the continents or simply beyond European Union, including the United Kingdom.
