S7 Technics’ aircraft cabin carpets production shop has received EASA Part-21 G approval. Previously, aircraft carpet production was available under EASA Part-145 approval. Now, each new product will be authorised by the EASA Form 1 certificate, which gives an ability to produce the stock of such carpets and as a result speeds up the replacement process of aircraft cabin carpets.

Airlines have a regular demand for worn-out carpets to be replaced on aircraft. As part of the EASA Part-145 approval, most of the cabin carpet production for Russian airlines’ aircraft are fabricated and changed during the course of base maintenance.

“Fabrication of aircraft cabin carpets under the EASA Part-145 approval has not only certain advantages, but also has a number of limitations. Therefore, recently, airline representatives have increasingly expressed their wishes to obtain new carpets with the certificate EASA Form 1, in order to organise a more rapid replacement,” says Mikhail Golovanov, the EASA.21G.0029 quality assurance manager at S7 Technics, Russia’s largest independent MRO provider.

The carpet production shop, which is approved by EASA Part-21 G certification, is located at the company’s Novosibirsk base and the presence of this approval now enables the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider to produce and move stocks of carpets to other S7 Technics bases and install them on customers’ aircraft.

The certified production shop consists of a 320-sq m floor area with six specialists involved in the production of carpets under EASA Part-21 G approval. Only certified materials from leading foreign manufacturers such as Lantal, Anker and Botany Weaving, are used in the production of aircraft cabin carpets. The production shop has a manufacturing capacity of at least 1,500 carpets per year.
