Russia’s NW Technic to service Embraer aircraft
NW Technic, a Russian privately owned MRO provider, is preparing to enter the Russian and CIS market in 2018, CEO Valery Pashaev told ATO Show Observer, Russian Aviation Insider’s sister publication. The company will primarily be servicing Embraer E190 regional jetliners to be delivered to Pegas Fly and Nordwind Airlines (both subsidiaries of Pegas Touristik Group).
“We have obtained all the necessary certificates and are now waiting for the aircraft to be delivered,” Pashaev noted. “As far as the type’s accumulator batteries and wheels are concerned, we are to be cleared for their maintenance within a month.”
NW Technic was established in 2015 on the premises of Nordwind Airlines’ aviation engineering service. Pashaev says the decision to spin off the carrier’s technical department into a separate entity was made as part of the drive to cut maintenance costs at Nordwind Airlines and Pegas Fly. NW Technic completed 144,000 labor hours in 2017, up 32% year-on-year.
