Freighter repair and maintenance certificate for AMTES

Freighter repair and maintenance certificate for AMTES

AMTES has been issued with Part 145 (AR-145) certification from Russia’s civil aviation body, the Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC), to carry out repair and maintenance of Antonov AN-124 Freighters at Leipzig-Halle Airport.

The AR-145 certificate sets out requirements for maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and will allow ATMES, a subsidiary of Volga-Dnepr Technics, to carry out work at its 8,500 square metre Leipzig-Halle hanger. ATMES was issued the certificate at the MAKS 2015 Air Show in Moscow by IAC manager, Sergey Instrumentov to ATMES managing director, Ildar Ilyasov.

Ilyasov says: “We decided to obtain MRO Organisation Certificate to extend our Russian built aircraft maintenance and repair capabilities. This is a solid step forward for Volga-Dnepr Group within the project AN-124 modernisation.”

He says Volga-Dnepr is planning to extend the certificate on other types of work in accordance with AR-145. Ilyasov says: “We plan to increase the amount of operations in relation to both Russian and Western aircraft and extend our maintenance capabilities in the European market.”
