The in-house maintenance service of Belarusian national carrier Belavia has completed its first C-check on a Bombardier CRJ100 regional jet (EW-100PJ). The job was performed in the first week of December.
The task involved non-destructive testing of the airframe. Some structural repairs, as well as cabin make-over were also on the list.
Another labor-intensive item involved modifications to the aircraft’s deicing system to enable leading-edge heating on the ground, prior to departure.
Belavia told Russian Aviation Insider that the С-check was monitored and approved by the country’s aviation authorities. The company’s maintenance operation also encompasses C-checks on Embraer 195 airliners. Further plans inclde adding C-checks for the Embraer Е175, as per the airline’s spokesperson. The operator plans to add two Embraer E195 and an Е175 to its fleet in 2018.
Belavia obtained EASA Part 145 certificate back in 2015. The clearance does not cover periodic maintenance on any type of aircraft. It entitles the airline to service aircraft with European registration, but Blavia currently does not offer services to third-party carriers on a regular basis.
Belavia operates CRJ100/200s, Embraer E175/195s, and Boeing 737s.
