Ukraine’s MAUtechnic is ready for its EASA approval
A separate MRO unit of Ukraine International is expecting to receive its EASA Part 145 approval certification before the end of this year
Ukrainian maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) specialist MAUtechnic, the former maintenance division of Ukraine International Airlines (UIA), which became a separate unit in 2017, is expecting to receive its EASA Part 145 approval certification before the end of this year. The company is hopeful that winning approval of the European authorities will enable it to attract new customers from outside Ukraine.
According to MAUtechnic’s official facebook account, the application was submitted to EASA a year ago, on March 1, 2019. The company is seeking approval to provide line and base maintenance on Boeing 737NG and Embraer E190 jet types, as well as for non-destructive testing (NDT) for the main aircraft types of its parent, the country’s largest airline.
Currently, MAUtechnic, whose name stems from the Ukrainian MAU acronym for Mizhdunarodni Avialinii Ukrainy, or Ukraine International Airlines, is approved to perform line and base maintenance on Ukraine-registered Boeing 737CL/NG and Embraer E190 aircraft, as well as line maintenance of the B767, the B777 and E170, as well as providing NDT services and component repairs for these types.
The Kyiv, Boryspil airport-based company envisages its further development in eventually adding competences in B737 MAX line maintenance, and servicing life vests. Last March it filed the relevant application to Ukraine’s state aviation service.
As of now, the bulk of MAUtechnic’s services consist of maintaining the fleet of its parent airline, as well as periodically providing services to new Ukrainian hybrid carrier SkyUp. In June 2019 the company received its first endorsement from a foreign authority when the civil aviation department of Afghanistan approved MAUtechnic for line and base maintenance of Boeing 737CL aircraft registered in that country, valid until June 12, 2020.
